A Highland Half Term
It’s that time of year again: summer half term for one child, Sports Day tomorrow for the other. Unlike in previous years, I have even managed to get my act together and volunteer to do something useful at Sports Day. So we are busy busy this week and blogging must wait.
Ah, but last weekend. Last weekend we did something I try not to do: took younger child out of school, so that we could have a long weekend away. Well, his elder brother would have been kicking his heels at home all week otherwise, and I had a sudden, urgent need to get over to the West Highlands for some coastal living. So off we went to Wester Ross and some of the most ridiculously beautiful parts of Scotland, with lochs, islands, mountains, palm trees (!) and a Monday morning exploring that castle, of ‘Highlander’ and James Bond fame. It was bliss. I’ll tell you more next week.
You can find that castle in winter light in The Road to the Isles.
