An update from bonnie Scotland
Spoke to Dad on Thursday. They'd had a day walking. They'd set off from the hotel and did around 10 miles with quite a bit of ups and downs round the hills (or are they classed as a Munroe!). They'd spotted a herd of deer. Weather had been mixed with rain the morning and a sunny afternoon.
Food still good in the hotel. On Wednesday evening Dad had had soup followed by gammon and pear and ice cream for desert. They'd had a couple of musicians as evening entertainment which Dad had said were very good.
The shower in the room isn't working so well, so they've been having a bath. I'd bet if Dad had got his tools he'd been sorting out that shower!
The plan for Friday is walking. Probably catching the bus out to somewhere and then do a walk.
Well Friday was a walking day. Weather has been pretty good. Couple of hail showers but other than that the sun has been out. Mountain tops have snow on them. The coach trip today was to Fort William so Dad and few others got dropped off and walked along the West Higherland Way. They did around 11 miles. The coach then picked them up on the way back through from Fort William.
On the menu tonight for tea is haggis - well you can't have a trip to bonnie Scotland without sampling haggis. The entertainment is a piper, so definitely a "Scottish" theme tonight.
They head back home tomorrow. Bags need to be outside the room by 6.00 am (I'd be tempted leave mine out tonight!), breakfast is 7.00 am and then they're on the road by 8.00 am.
