Vacation level five.
I went to Scotland. Polly came too. There are many photographs displayed here
(which Blogger won't upload).
We started in Edinburgh and rode around on bus tours for a while. Then we walked down the Royal Mile and up Radicals Road. We took a five day tour to Oban and Portree. From Oban we visited the islands of Mull, Iona and Staffa. There were puffins at Staffa. At Portree on the Isle of Skye Polly took a day off while the tour went to Neist. Back in Edinburgh there was a mix up with the hotels, which was pleasantly resolved, and we rented a car. We drove to Ullapool where we stayed for two weeks. The first week there was a folk music festival. We also drove down to Inverewe and up to Inverpolly. Libby visited for a weekend in the middle and we climbed Ullapool Hill (300m - nearly a mountain). The second week there was a writing festival. We also drove up to Durness, where there were more puffins. We got the car back to Edinburgh on empty, climbed Scott Monument and the morning before Polly returned home we visited the zoo - which was nice.
