    Well after 31 years of Scot free marriage we decided it was time to check out cuisine north of the border.
    First stop Gretna Grren

    Then we headed west to Dumfries before tracking parallel to the M74 where we met Postman McPat & his big red van

    Sorry Macca
    It's not intentional
    The wifi connection is very poor and doing anything is very slow.
    Having done it editing is even worse !
    I'll try to post some "live" pics while we are out and about

    I would do Mike but the MSport suspension has very restricted ground clearance ;)

    An impromptu comfort break is what we'll call it, thought it made quite a nice shot of the cars myself :)

    Another lovely photo Brian from you're mini-cruise with Titan. Looking at the other photos you must have a lot of traffic free roads in Scotland.

    Great photos Terry. Scotland is such a beautiful place, and the view over Loch Linnhe is just stunning. It just doesn't run out of amazing views like that no matter where you go.

    I'd also like to say a big "ThankYou" to BrianH for the routes which he suggested around Inverary, Oban and Glencoe.
    They were a taster for the day which we enjoyed on the "Road to the Isles" and Mallaig on Friday.
    Looking forward to doing it again as soon as the midges do back to sleep :(
    Unfortunately Dot got bitten and has reacted quite badly to the little pesks .

    I have more pics if folks would like to see them?

    Tomatin - claimed to be the Scotland's largest distillery
    Check the date on the barrel middle left - 1967 - to be bottled in 3 years time
