Ive been TAGGED...Oh the shame !

The wonderful ILKA has been a very naughty girl and tagged me. I did have thoughts of cleaning and tidying, but decided to share as is. I am blushing with embarrassment and thanking my lucky stars that she didnt ask to see the whole room or the floor.

I'm going to pass the tag onto Natalie B ,Crozza ,Carmel and Jane P.

Onto the land of tarten

How glorious the drive up to Scotland was with so many postcard moments that I longed to capture.The air so fresh and clean, the countryside so pretty.
A week to explore was not long enough.This first shot was taken from McCaigs tower, overlooking the town of Oban.

Castles, castles everywhere.Its just seeping with history and stories begging to be told.These three pics are all different castles, the middle one is Urquhart Castle on the Loch Ness, built in the 13th century.Twas a misty day to sail on the loch, but alas, no sign of Nessie.

Such beautiful sites such as this waterfall that was tucked away.
Below is the view we had from our super holiday spot at Tralee Bay Holidays in Benderloch,by Oban.Our first walk down to the loch had me sighting the first of the wildlife, a seal.The first morning had hubby sighting wild deer.This holiday park was A1, and I would go back in a heartbeat

Another castle on the far left ( cant remember the name but brother -in laws father was stationed here in the war) Couldn't you just imagine a princess living there.The next shot is 2150ft up on the Ben Nevis Range.What a great sight that was and we truly were above the clouds.

We enjoyed a rare breeds park where my boy made friends with a highland coo.Yes coo.
We saw the funniest dance from a lama there, something we will laugh about for years to come.

It was so interesting to see the how they work the lochs too.Patience and communication are what is needed here, but it was interesting to watch. Ive got to say that this was a wonderful week that I really enjoyed.Somewhere I know I will venture to again, but next time I hope to catch a true Scott all kilted up, cause I want to know if those rumours are true...he-he.
