Here's where we'll be for the next couple of weeks:

Almost ready for tomorrow - Island Hopping in the Hebrides Map_pu10

Driving up to Inverary tomorrow then catching the Oban to Barra Ferry on Friday lunchtime. Working our way up to Harris during the week, then having 7 days on Skye before catching the ferry to Mallaig and coming home.

Surely, there'll be some sunshine in two weeks...

I'll try and post some pics whilst we're away but you can be sure there'll be a Blog when we get back.  Razz 

BTW, I'm not coming back until I've seen an otter!  bounce  bounce

It happens to be in Loch Ness, but don't believe anything the locals tell you.

I love the drive to Inverary - amazing scenery and the roads are good too.

Have a brilliant time.

Great route Abs - hope you get some good weather. The more time spent on Harris the better - luskentyre beach great for a walk with a dog! A night in Berneray with views to Harris is vital too! Recommend dinner in Scarista house - lovely local produce. The walk to the golden eagle hide great - lots of eagles here and Lewis - take binoculars. Unfortunately I think the eagles may have eaten all the otters though!!

Enjoy.

How many kms have you covered in Absinthe now? Certainly getting your monies worth out of her. Good job!

Another great blog Martin - looks like all 4 of you had a fantastic time with good weather. We're up on Skye next week but in a cottage not in the van.
