A Scottish Adventure - Day 7

It's the last day of our holiday today, and as we have a lot of driving ahead of us, we decided to stay close to home. There was a chilly breeze when we went out for a walk, and the mountains had a dusting of snow on them. This was the view of our cottage as we set off for a walk.......

On our walk back home, we played 'spot our cottage'! I've made it easy for you to see the lovely place that has been our home for the last week.

A few moments later, the cottage was bathed in sunshine.

It really has been the most perfect place to stay - peaceful, warm and cosy. Inside I would describe the decor as 'shabby chic', with lots of interesting artwork, and quirky objects. Here are a few of my favourite things.

Tomorrow we set off on the long journey back to Norfolk. We are stopping off part way, so won't be back in Norfolk until Sunday. There's just time for one last piece of cake from Jann's - today it's a Belgian chocolate and sticky ginger cake - yummy! Thanks for coming on my Scottish Adventure this week, hope you had fun! xxx

I have fond memories of Skye. 30 years ago we couldn't afford hotels or B&B and so our tent was our accommodation for a fortnight. For two weeks it did not stop raining ONCE! However, on Skye, sitting in our tent playing cards, the drop drop drop suddenly stopped for 15 seconds. It was the Air Sea Rescue Helicopter hovering and causing a rain shadow!! Oh yes, fond (damp) memories!!
