Lovely family, they came back to the cottage a second time, in October. Thanks Steven. Lovely pics, Jake is clever. I didn't recognise Inverlochy Castle from this angle, had to ask him. I should know better. Not many visitors to Fort William know that there is a brilliant castle within a short walk from the Town.
The week went so fast and we really had a great time and only wish we were still there now.
Michelle thanks for providing all the towels and linen, sorry we didn't meet you this time.
The walks, the peace, the beauty, the friendly people and even the weather didn't spoil it.
Just to let you know the Holly Tree is still serving excellent food and the Clachhaig too and the best fish and chips in "The Oban fish and chip shop".
We covered more area this time, from a day in Glasgow visiting where my Father in Law grew up (he had not been back to the area for over 50 years) and the NT tenement house really bought his memories flooding back.
We walked in Glencoe, around Fort William, Cuil bay and caught the ferry over to Corran and drove on the most beautiful deserted road through Morvern to Lochaine.
I attach some pictures Jake took and we really hope to return again and again.
