After two nights in the castle we headed to Scotland to visit some old friends. We brought some warm, sunny weather from Tennessee with us.

We stayed a few nights in a caravan on Loch Goil but decided to leave a day early because of the midges. We have nothing to compare with the midges in the states, thank the lord. They are small flies that like to bite and they were everwhere.

One of my favorite moments so far on this trip was four-wheeling, and yes the grannies went with us. They did slow us down a little, though my mom was reprimanded by our guide for reckless driving. :D
