weather is the greatest determinant of a great holiday??
i traveled with 2 RI bros last month on a 9-day driving holiday to Wales (llandudno, conwy, snowdownia, pembrokeshire & cardiff) 30apr-8may2017…and everyday we had glorious sunchine.. 🙂
now in scotland the weather is as wet & damp as we had read about & planned for. the sots were saying – we only noticed the weather when it is sunny, meaning otherwise it is always raining & wet, and rain was what we had throughout our 6 days driving holiday.
we were driving from glasgow to fort williams, having picked up our car at avis glasgow. the journey is 108miles & 2hrs 21mins, so the plan was to stopped at various places along the way to see the scenery & hike if possible.
we knew glen etive is a beautiful drive along a single track road & takes about 2hrs.
we were contemplating if we could hike the lost valley..that is like a 4hr hike.
after glen elective, we stopped at a few places & was at the 3 sisters at 3.20pm, so not quite enough time to hike & it was drizzling/wet..
it was too early to go to fort williams as there is little to do there.
so we did the next best thing, and went to glencoe lochan to take a stroll around the small lake.
family of ducks creating a nice wave pattern..
it’s a beautiful lake to walk around…
it’s lake on one side & wooded foliage on the other..
& a wonderful home for the ducks.
it’s only a 1/2 hr walk & we were done by around 4.20pm.
next we drove to fort williams & checked in at our b&b. the gantocks.
