Travel Report: Old Invermoriston Bridge, Scotland.

July 2019. The more I see of Scotland, the more I realise what an incredible man Thomas Telford was. Not content with creating one of the world’s most impressive waterways, The Caledonian Canal, Telford also designed over 1000 bridges all across Britain. Happily, Spackles and I managed to tick one of them off whilst driving […]

Travel Report: Fort Augustus, Loch Ness.

July 2019. Spackles and I had been looking forward to an hour’s stroll around picturesque Fort Augustus. We were on our way to the nearby village of Drumnadrochit and figured this would be a great place for some breakfast and a nosey. Bisected by a charming section of the Caledonian Canal and perched on the southernmost […]

Travel Report: Visit Urquhart Castle, Scotland.

July 2019. Located atop a dramatic peninsula two miles southeast of Drumnadrochit Village, Urquhart Castle stands as the most dramatic spot of all to enjoy the majesty of Loch Ness. For years I had wanted to visit Urquhart Castle. Finally, on a moody overcast summer’s afternoon in 2019, I took my chance. As if the staggering […]

Travel Report: The Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition.

July 2019. The pretty Scottish village of Drumnadrochit draws in thousands of visitors every year thanks to its snug location on the western shore of Loch Ness.

July 2019. There are a whole host of picturesque little villages to choose from if one wants to bed down for a couple of nights by Loch Ness. Having done our research online, Spackles and I opted for Drumnadrochit Village, a postcard-perfect community nestled on the western shore of Scotland’s world famous loch. Drumnadrochit might […]

Travel Report: The Lancaster Hotel, Oban.

July 2019. Hotels certainly don’t come cheap in Oban. In fact, my sister and I spent a fair chunk of time trying to track down a reasonably priced joint to lay our heads. In the end, after much research, we reluctantly settled on The Lancaster Hotel Oban. I say reluctantly because of the consistently crappy […]

Travel Report: St Columba’s Cathedral, Oban.

July 2019. For the umpteenth time I promised myself that I wouldn’t do any church articles. After all, I would have my hands more than full with a wide range of delightful location reports from across Oban, right? Well, yeah. But then, as fate would have it, someone had built a massive cathedral right next […]

Travel Report: McCaig’s Tower – Oban, Scotland.

July 2019. The Scottish town of Oban is an incredibly beautiful place for so many reasons. From the dramatic sight of Dunollie Castle to the deep blue waters of Oban Bay with its various islands, this place is certainly a feast for the old eyeballs. Moreover, and perhaps most impressive of all, you’ve got the elegant […]

Travel Report: Ee-usk Seafood Restaurant, Oban.

July 2019. Ask me if I’m into seafood and I’m likely to give a muted response. Seafood? Meh. But actually, whenever I have seafood I really enjoy it. I just can’t be assed with picking bones out of my dinner and generally I don’t want my dish to have eyes. Moreover, put the likes of […]
