Back…”On the Road Again”

03 Oct


Oh yes!

In a weeks time we’ll be back on the road and heading for the wonderful north-west 😀  .  A dangerous game betting on the weather in mid October but we’ll prepare for the worst.  Lots of waterproofs, boots and changes of clothes, you ask?  Hell no!  Lots of books, wine and chocolate.  No weather…no walk! 😆 😆 😆

I’m not anticipating much by way of hillwalking – one easy one if the weather’s good but hopefully we’ll be tackling more low level walking and seeing the autumn sights in a fantastic part of the country.

With our base at Laide on Gruinard Bay we will be placed for walks along that coastline as well as short excursions into Torridon and Assynt.  There’s also the not so remote possibility that we’ll find some food to talk about as well.

Bring it on!

    I’m jealous.

    It’s odd how one tends to holiday in the middle of nowhere, outside high season, when one has a dug, eh?

    Very true Scott 😆 !

    It’s only in the past couple of years that we’ve had to consider a hol where the dog goes too. This has made the hunt for B&B/hotel accommodation a bit trickier but has certainly acquainted us with the great outdoors…usually after we’re been asked to leave ’cause The Fatdog has raided the fridge.

    Have a great tiume. We spent a few days in Ullapool and Tongue in August and loved it, wonderful scenery up there. 😀

    Thanks Tessa 😀 , really looking forward to it. We’d been up there a few times up to about 1983 then I think only once after that (before this year that is). It’s great looking at all the things we missed on those earlier visits – courtesy of the internet! Yes…it was that long ago. 😆

    Thanks Irene,

    I’m busy reading up on walks for us just now…and some geocaches. J is busy stocking up on books…just in case! I don’t have an option…I have to walk the dog 😦 .
