What a lot I have seen today. We drove up from Kendal to Portsonachan. On the way I saw thousands of sheep and miles and miles of lovely old dry stone walling all set in the most glorious rolling fells. Very dramatic.

We are now at the hotel set right on the banks of Loch Awe. It is the most beautiful and peaceful spot. Complete silence broken only by the sound of running rills, birdsong and the occasional breeze in the tree tops.

Posts may be erratic as there is only a small bar where there is any internet access. There are several people crammed in here, tapping away!

We were in traffic, or I could have taken some pictures on the way up.

But here is one of the view from the hotel terrace. Gorgeous or what!

There is nothing here except the hotel and some fishing lodges, so tomorrow we are off to Inverrary to look at the old prison amongst other things.
