Well ... We got away!
I finally demanded ....and we set off on Monday.
We went to Durham and then travelled up the Northumbian Coast, calling in on lots of places thanks to Tourist information officer Lou -thestorymaker
(when I get home I'll write more as I can't remember the names of places at the mo. my brains a bit fuddled!)
We stayed at Berwick and then headed up to Edinburgh but decided at the last min that we both really really wanted to go to Iona so we carried on and stayed in Oban before coming across to Iona.
Tomorrow we are planning on heading back down through the highlands to the Loch Lomond area.
I'll post photos when I get home.
