Today was a fun day! The group went on a bus tour through the south western part of the highlands.
We started the trip off at the Rest-and-Be-Thankful Pass.
The greenery is so amazing.
Then we made our way around the A-83 by th Loch Fyne into Inveraray to see this lovely castle which is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll.
We got to see him packing up his car to head to Holyrood to hang out with the Queen for the afternoon.
After the Inveraray we headed up the road passed Lock Awe to Oban. But on our way we stopped in at this fantastic church called St. Conan’s Kirk.
A piece of Robert the Bruce’s thigh bone is entombed within.
We had lunch in the busy little Ferry town of Oban.
After lunch we head back the way we came and stopped in to check out the ruins of Kilchurn Castle.
The orginal structure was built in 1450 and an addition was added later in 1500.
On our way back to Glasgow we stopped to take in the sights of the Loch Lomond and it’s sleepy little town.
We returned to the School House around 8PM, it was a long wonderful day.
I leave you here tonight with
some sheep to count in your sleep…..
Heading to bed now good night!
