Recommended Posts

Torridon

we were stuck behind a group of cars who couldn't get round a campervan. He pulled over as we were turning sharp left, to top that off, my front brake lever felt funnny and had to pump the brake to get it to work. Turned out a small torch used for checking my oil level jammed itself between the lever on occasion, Phew!

Mike had a senior moment as he couldn't find his wallet to pay for the icecreams he promised us, he eventually dug down enough into his pockets to find the wallet

Tommy went off to do some personal stuff so Mike and I were forced to take a tour of the distillery

Oldest and smallest in Scotland. Is was a great tour and had 2 glasses of whisky with a keepsake all for the sum of £10.

Oban grew around the distillery rather than the otherway round

We also got a ferry ticket to Mull as we were spending 2 days here to recuperate before going home

The ferry was to Caraigmure and nothing there whatsoever, a bus can take you to Tobermory for £11 return which was more than the ferry, we wisly spent that at the inn instead
