The West Coast of Scotland

We’re on the West Coast of Scotland. It has been more than 20 years since I’ve been over this way. It’s only about 4 hours from Aberdeen which isn’t far, but it is too far to come for just a weekend which is what most of our trips are. Fortunately we all have a full week of holiday at the same time, which is rare, so we’re making the most of it.

The drive here was magnificent and reminded me a bit of inland Canterbury in New Zealand. Here are some photos from the car.





These next photos are of Loch Kishorn where we went for a little walk.







It’s beautiful here. It’s interesting how west of Inverness the signs are suddenly all in Gaelic and yet on the East it’s only English. Why is that?

  1. The west coast is indeed beautiful. I live in Glasgow and love escaping “doon tha watter”. As for the gaelic signs, I have no idea. I just assumed that it was north of Stirling that the signs changed, no idea why though. We’ll need to find out.

  2. Glad you’ve got good weather. I’ve also got pictures from friends who were in Glastonbury over Easter. Looks like the West coast is the place to be – it’s a bit grey this side.
