Back from the UK

We got home from Scotland yesterday afternoon. Gosh - that place is D A M P. Rained up until two days before we left. While there we managed to C&C. I would call it a castle and catheral tour.

We stayed in Avielmore which is about 30 miles south of Inverness in the Highlands area. The roads were as we expected, narrow and winding. Driving on the left made for a challenging trip.

With the exchange rate as it is, it made for an expensive 9 days. As we stayed in a self-catering lodge, we prepared breakfast and dinners there. However lunch for the four of us would average 4o pounds - translated to almost $80.00.

We were surprised to see so many RV's on the road. They are quite small and usually trailers towed by cars. There were some small Class C's. We only saw one large Classs A. I would not want to be driving that except on the main roadways. Many, many campgrounds; what the Scotish call Caravan parks. We noticed most only had electrical hookups.

Altogether an interesting trip but good to be back in the States.
