Blue Red

Monday

Today is our last day in the middle of nowhere!

Tomorrow we go to Glasgow.

We left Iona on Saturday morning and were on the same boat as the sweet german boys and their father and the group of American students who we were with in the Iona hostel. We caught the bus to Oban and caught the bus to my friends house in Ballachullish. My friend and I hadn't seen each other for about 4 years so it was lovely catching up with her and her family again after so long. We stayed over at their house for the night and on Sunday she took us for a drive around. Sunday night we came to Glencoe youth hostel and it's in a beautiful setting. It's in the middle of the trees at the bottom of some huge mountains.

Today we went for a walk into the village and on some forestry trails (about 6 miles altogether). We had a picnic lunch at a veiwpoint on one of the trails. Then we called at the coffee shop before we set off back.

This afternoon we sat and read and relaxed.
