The Bothy at Loch Tearnait. Not where we spent the week, as it’s beautiful, but a bit primitive.
Doing nothing but holiday this week, up in the Ardtornish Estate in Scotland. I’ve been going there with the family for more than 30 years on and off, and it’s quite a magical place. The weather this year was really quite superb, with 5 days of unbroken sunshine, and we had a fantastic time. Besides lots of walking, we managed a trip to Mull, 2 superb meals at the Whitehouse restaurant, and a trip out on the little fishing boat. We also had an incredible run of luck spotting wildlife, with Otters, Pine Martens, Golden Eagles, White Tailed Eagles, Mink, Buzzards, herds of deer, and pretty much everything Scotland has to offer. I’m already feeling withdrawal symptoms the day after. There’s lots of photos here if you want to have a look.
