We're back in sunny England, rained the whole way back from Edinburgh, but the suns out in Morecambe, so that means it's time to sit in a dimly lit pub and eat dinner
Some scenery on the return back to England

We took a tour of the Glenlivet distillery today, it's very impressive, especially the heady stench of booze from the cask warehouse!

Though it is on the malt whisky trail, but we haven't seen much malt whisky either!

The weather on Skye took a turn for the worst and we didn't get to do the wildlife tour. We decided to go to Inverness for a day or so, more things to do during the bad weather.

The picture doesn't really capture it properly, but we were relaxing last night watching a TV show and a deer popped her head over the rocks above our van to take a look at us!
Wild camping spot from last night, nice views!
We are wild camped for the night just outside of Portree with amazing views across the hill tops. Hoping to go on a whale and wildlife viewing trip tomorrow, though the booking system in these parts seems a little unusual.
Eating lunch in Mallaig, before we go over to Skye this afternoon

Some clown's parked his boat too high up...only joking of course, he was probably just drunk
Bye bye Tobermory
7 August 2016
Had a spot of bad weather today:
"A period of strong winds, including gales over the far north and northwest of Scotland, is expected to affect Scotland on Sunday. Gusts of 50-60 mph are expected over the far north and northwest Scotland and 40-50 mph over other parts of Scotland. These strong winds will also generate very rough sea conditions near north and northwest Scotland. Please be aware of the potential for localised disruption to travel and outdoor activities."
We just held a load of sea creatures at the Tobermory aquarium
Enjoying the rain in Toberymory
Windswept on Calgary bay! It was a rugged place to stay wild camping last night

Seems to rain every time I start to bbq anything! I guess that's what Scotland is about!
Arrived at our Oban stopover, after getting a bottle of whisky of course (none for Claire)
