Achiltibuie bound

In twenty minutes’ time (3am), Marion will awaken and our summer adventure will begin!

This morning we are setting off on a 739 mile drive north to Achiltibuie in Wester Ross.

We’ll be deviating from the usual route to visit Galloway Forest Park and the Burrell Collection in Glasgow.

We’ll be rendezvousing at the Burrell with my cousin Stephen Landon who has come over from New York to holiday with us. I’m really looking forward to showing him around Wester Ross and Sutherland – he’s not been north of Edinburgh before today.

During our week overlooking the Summer Isles we will visit Lochinver, Kylesku, Kinlochbervie, Durness, Ullapool, Gairloch and Applecross.

We’ll be popping in to see John & Caroline Wales at Tigh Ruaraidh. Stephen specifically wants to see it’s location.

At the moment the weather isn’t looking promising up there but we don’t mind much. Just one sunny day is not too much to ask though!
