Greedy for more time north of the border and fortunate with good weather on a few long weekends in September 2020 meant 2 trips to Scotland! The second trip was meant to be less of a constant drive and more of a destination for time chilling out looking at the horizon at the end of the Road to the Isles – somewhere I’ve been meaning to go for a while but til now it has always seemed a long way. I would have quite liked to go to the small Isles but 1) that involved being near people on a ferry and 2) no vehicles on the islands makes things harder for me. We decided to relocate when too many people started turning up for the weekend. Discovering Lismore wasn’t far away and we didn’t have to get out of the vehicle on the ferry we spent a night there , then noticed the Isle of Seil was not so far from that. We would have spent a night on Seil if we hadn’t had to return home – it’s a shame it doesn’t have sandy beaches but there are rocks for Trixie to scramble on .
