I am back ~ and I had a very lovely ~ but very WET weekend ~ in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. The hotel was just as warm and friendly as I remembered and the picture of the Buachaille Etive Mor was taken just as we arrived from our bedroom window!
The weather was very typically Scottish and it rained for most of the weekend and rather unfortunately I discovered that my so called waterproof coat was not in fact very waterproof at all and I got absolutely soaked from head to toe!
Unfortunately because the weather was so wet there was not much chance to get as many photographs as I would have liked as the rain and cloud were coming down and blocking the view over the mountains.
The Autumnal colours were beautiful and the photographs do not really show the contrast between all the greens and browns and oranges but the scenery was spectacular.
The rainy weather didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves and although we didn’t get very much walking done we did manage to visit Oban and Fort William and have a lovely lunch and stop a few times for tea and cake!
And I did find the time to crochet some greeny grassy borders around my flowery circles too!
