Surprise - it brought back childhood memories

Mc Cagis Tower Oban

The cottage was very clean and cosy and a great base for exploring the surrounding area. I had quite a surprise as your cottage is only a few miles down the road from a lodge I stayed as a child - Glen Acculish, just past the Ballachulish House hotel!! I remembered going under the bridge by the Ballaculish hotel. We did lots of walking. On Sunday we went into Oban -walked up to McCaig's tower, wonderful views, then went on a boat trip to see the seals and had a nice meal in McTavish's.

Monday we went to Glengarray castle, and walked to the top of the hill behind it, tiring but worth it.

Tuesday we went to Fort William and then on to Glen Nevis further past the centre to a long and rocky walk to a waterfall. That was definitely worth the trek.

Wednesday we went to Mull and walked to Torosay and the other castle further on (got the bus back though as a long trek!).

Thursday was the only rainy day so we did the Seal Sanctury and went to do the hydroelectric station but it was fully booked.

Friday we went for a ride Spean Bridge way and did another waterfall walk and on to Mallaig for the ride. We also went for a ride along Glencoe to the Visitor centre. We had two lovely meals at the pub on the old Glencoe road when we found it!! We hadn't gone far enough the first time we tried to find it.

We had a wonderful time thank you so much for all the information in the cottage and emails. We didn't want to come home!
