Back!

Ok, we’re back from our 3 week try to Islay. To give you an impression about the weather: my daughter Mara (4) started talking about sleigh rides and singing christmas songs…
Other than that, it was really nice – highly relaxing (I read 7 books), the kids enjoyed getting all muddy immensely.

The drive back to the ferry across the scottish mainland makes me want to come back to Scotland some day – definitely! Had Edinburgh not been suffering from the Fringe (no rooms available) we would probably have spent the last three days there – sorry Ewan and Martin, maybe next time.

A big THANK YOU goes to Walter Schobert for letting us reside in his house.

Anyway – if you want to see some pictures (mostly kids and distilleries – there’s not a lot of other interesting things to take pictures of on Islay ;) ), have a look at my Flickr page.

  1. You could have taken pictures of the birds (the feathered variety), a lot of people visit Islay to do just that ;-)

    I see you visited Kilchoman, a friend of mine runs the holiday cottages there. And Machir Bay, my favourite place on Islay.

    Anyway, good to see that you enjoyed it.
