LOW COUD AND A DASH OF SUNSHINE …. LOCH LOMOND TO FORT WILLIAM

On leaving the borders our mission was to fill up with cheap fuel in Glasgow ..A quick shop and off up to Loch Lomond for our over night stop at Firkin Point again found in Search4sites ..A Scotland Tourist carpark and loo .. GPS. 56.1696528,-4.6778557 …Flat ..but had to move from under the trees .. rain.. trees and a camper van don’t mix .. The rain on the trees drips heavily on to the metal roof and keep one awake grrrrr …

An old oak just behind Hetty

I decided to exceed my normal campervan cooking repertoire and dish up Liver n Onions ..Mash and Veg .. The consensus of opinion was delicious ..So many pans the washer upper complained ..It will be a while before I cook that again

Morning walk along the banks of Lomond with Ben Lomond across the Loch..The clouds trying to clear the peak ..In fact a little sunshine appeared ..

Classic Hymers seem to find each other and one turned up but sadly sounded like a formula 1 as his exhaust had fallen off on the Erskine Bridge and he was parking in this carpark awaiting a replacement . Hetty with new friend

The weather was kind to us as we wandered up through the glens …Autumn colour still on the trees ..

No rain and bits of sun until we reached Glen Coe ..Lunched in the carpark half way down and the rain came down .. Still glorious and stunning as it changed into somber colours as we passed the cairn commemorating The Glen Coe Massacre

GLEN COE

We’re now in Fort William ..In Lidl Carpark ..We asked at the store and were given permission to over night before going on to Ullapool to take the ferry to Stornaway on Lewis Thursday

morning ..
