First of all, it was the beginning of May, so we didn't have any problems with insects.
Then I must admit that even locals used to say, that the weather was wonderful for the period of time. :) By the way, it was interesting to see, how the weather was changet from misty and rainy, to sunny with clear sky and back for several times per day. Anyway, I got enough of the sun (my flecks of sunlight can be a proof). :-)
The location for this holiday was chosen carefully. Everyone had lots of demands for the place, so we found a cottage in Aberfoyle - a small village in the region of Stirling.
And the cottage was nice as well... very small but cozy... untill the moment we read some information in a cottage reference book. The only thing which helped us - was the sense of humour. After all there are not a lot of people who can say that they spend a beautiful week in ex public convineniences place. ;-)
By the way, there is a legend connected with Aberfoyle. This village was a place, where Reverend Robert Kirk lived.
What I really liked was Achray Forest with its "Three Lochs Forest Drive" - 7,5 miles of winding forest road.
And before driving anywhere it was a lovely experience to have Big Scottish Breakfast in "Kilmahog Woolen Mills"... I loved it, even though now I need to keep my diet. :-D
There is a very nice driving route from Aberfoyle to Inversnaid (Loch Lomond). I had a feeling that everything around was surreal. But I guess it depends on the weather. Inversnaid is interesting for the Falls of Inversnad, amazinf Rob Roy's View (by the way, we've found one more view point, and it was even better than an official one, but not so easy to get there after the rain) and, of course, Rob Roy's Cave... That was impressive. I would never find it if not the sign on the stones made by the white paint - "CAVE"... That was worthy of the journey. :-D
Anyway my dream to see Scotland became true. And I'm happy.
I definitely will go there one more time.
