It was my Mum’s birthday this weekend and when they told me that we were spending the weekend with friends in a big country house, I had visions of sun, sea and sand. Dad said “change all of that to wind, rain and cold” and that’s where we’d be! Scotland!
Find a wheelchair and travel in style!
We were up near beautiful Inverness and, in an apparent attempt to soften the blow, they insisted that we were in our own microclimate. I actually think I agree as, considering the weather in the rest of the country, we hardly had any rain!
But we were stocked up ready for anything:
Some of the braver amongst us returned from a run around the estate – the main decision being whether to take the north or east drive! Herbie greeted everyone with his teddy like they’d be gone for years!
Sixteen people, three course meals every night, dog walks on the beach, roaring fires and lots and lots of laughter!
We all crawled into our Princess beds and snuggled down for the cosiest sleep, ready to see what tomorrow had in store.
