SCOTTISH NORTH COAST 500 (VIA THE ORKNEY ISLES AND SKYE) PART FIVE

ISLE OF SKY TO ARDTOE (MAINLAND) DAY 9

Today we are making our way down to catch the ferry at Armadale to Mallaig then on to Ardtoe where my Brother and his Wife live.

Again a beautiful day, the crossing over to Mallaig started smooth  but hen became a little rocky but all adds to the fun.  Mallaig is a pretty very bust port and unfortunatly is a bit of a pain to park near with a large Motor Home, we park quite away out of the town looking over the port and had some dinner.  Time to set of to Ardtoe the journey is very scinice with single track roads and windy in places.  Ardtoe is a small comunity with a sprinkling of Houses where my Brother lives, the best part is he is only yards away from 2 small  bays with lovely beaches. 

 

ARDTOE TO LATTERSHAW (LEADHILLS) DAY 10

Home ward bound with the last stop of the journey to a little Cl site at Lettershaw near Leadhills to break the long journey home from my Brothers and his Wife. The  picturqes journey from Ardtoe on some single track roads which are all really nicley mantaned took us through  Acharacle,  Ardery, Strotian, Inversanda and up to Corran where we caught a little car ferry over to the bottom of Fort William.  We travelled on through Glen Coe and stopped for dinner looking over the mountain range after dinner,  Carrying  on through Bridge of Orchy on towards Loch Lomond and round Glasgow and on to Lattershaw for the night.
