The Twinned with Las Vegas Sign
My Mate BigD, at Dalwhinnie...if you hadn't guessed.

The Twinned with Las Vegas Sign
Small houses at Killin. It seems all the rural houses are tiny cottages like this, and painted white...or at least light colours.

The mountain behind the clachaig inn
Clachaig Inn. The mountains behind are part of Glencoe.

Loch Lochy on a beautiful day
Loch Lochy. The A82 is a busy road and passes Loch Ness, but I reckon THIS is the most beautiful part of the road.

The Queue for the Armadale to Mallaig Ferry. It's not a real holiday if there's not been a ferry involved somewhere.

bikes strapped down on the mallaig ferry
The bikes are (not so) carefully strapped down. Wouldn't like to try this on a stormy sea...

The Beach at Invercaimbe Campsite
The Beach at Invercaimbe Campsite with it's white sands. The clouds and the camera don't really tell how glorious it was there.

It's that BIG black scary and cute wooly cow again.

The Waiting Rooms for the Luing Ferry
The scruffy and ripped seats in the so-called "waiting room" for the Luing (pronounced "Ling") Ferry.

Fishing on Toberonochy Harbour Wall
2 presumably very bored kids sat on the harbour wall at Toberonochy Harbour.

The postal van on the ramp waiting for the Luing Ferry
The postal van on Luing island is also the school bus...and probably the ambulance and fire engine too...
