Scottish diaries. ..more miles


Yesterday,  Tuesday was a damp squid to start with so we both checked  the weather forecasts over breakfast,  we had planned a trip out but only if it was reasonable as driving in the rain for a soggy ice cream simply doesn't appeal.

The verdict was that the rain was  going to clear so we set out for Plockton, the setting for the wicker man film and Hamish Macbeth.

By the time we got there the sun was out and we did some wildlife spotting,

 visited an exhibition by Jane Mackenna and bought  a couple of prints. One of the old post office on Skye as it's always been a favourite wee building for some reason and one just because I like it.

During the summer there is also a knitting shop here they sell garments knitted by the local ladies over the winter months. I popped in for a chat but nothing caught my eye :-(

We then headed up to Ullapool, again somewhere that we had visited several times but makes a lovely place to sit and eat a sandwich.

Although you have to watch out for the seagulls, fortunately this one hadn't yet learnt to sandwich snatch.

all in all a quiet relaxing afternoon except for the fighter jets doing low level flight training down the valleys and across the harbour ( when my camera was packed away!! )

Happy to hear it cleared up for you. That looks like a lovely town, rain or shine!
