SCOTLAND: monday

We left our cottage to head back to the airport mid-afternoon on Monday, so we managed to squeeze in another adventure in the morning - before heading back to the house to eat an enormous lunch to use up as much food as we could!

I had read about the amazing Three Lochs Drive, that's open from Easter to September (I think!) and is a one way road that takes you past three different Lochs and through the most beautiful Highland countryside. The views were the best we'd seen, and there were places along the drive where you could pull over and see them better. There are car parks at each Loch and we decided to explore Loch Drunkie - best name ever!

It was such a lovely walk, along the edge of the Loch. We tried to be as quiet as possible - not an easy task with Coralie in tow! - to see if we could spot some red squirrels or deer, but I think we were just too noisy!

There were these amazing huge wooden instruments along the way too, which didn't help! There were bells that made different sounds, and two that made a cuckoo noise. Plus the huge Xylophone was a favourite with the girls.

The roads leading to and from the drive, which is off the main road, were really windy and fun too - very Top Gear-esque! Well, they would have been fun if the girls hadn't decided they were just too windy, and puked all over the back seats - in unison! - as we made our way home. Thankfully they were fine after that, but still - I had to drive the rest of the way home super slowly!
