Collaig House B&B

The last post in my Highland Adventure series is dedicated to the lovely B&B I stayed in. Collaig House is a luxury 4star B&B ran by Jamie and Julie Beamish. The B&B is located in Kilchrenan(about 40 mins from Oban). Both Jamie & Julie are extremely nice. I didn’t get to speak much to Jamie…

Staffa – Fingal’s Cave

I’ve covered Oban, Mull & Iona. Now its all about Staffa & Fingal’s Cave. Staffa is truly one of the most unique islands in the Inner Hebrides. It has the most amazing Basalt formations and is home to the world famous Fingal’s Cave. We took a boat from Iona to get to Staffa. You can…

The Lamrig – Oban

  We were up in the highlands for a wee break last week, our first of the year. I love the highlands, especially Oban. The highlands of Scotland are hauntingly beautiful, even when the weather is miserable. Its hard to feel depressed when the scenery is so picturesque. For the last 3 years we’ve been…

BBQ at St.Andrew’s Beach

Living in Scotland, hot summer days are few and far between. Today for instance, was filled with relentless rain and what felt like gale force winds. So when the sun decides to make an appearance; you drop everything, blow the dust off the BBQ and head out to the beach! Best to go outside and…
