Touring Scotland with the EV - Day 21 & 22

Days 21 & 22 (Saturday 22nd & Sunday October)

Armadale waiting for the Ferry (see below)
Over the weekend we made our way back to mainland Scotland via Skye. A drive to Tarbert and once the car was parked up in line ready for the ferry we had plenty of time for coffee at The Isle of Harris Distillers coffee shop. Then we popped into the Tarbert 'Harris Tweed' Shop where you can buy fabric by the metre. It was hard to choose one from the huge collection but I made my choice and was given some official 'Harris Tweed' woven labels to sew into what ever I make with the fabric.
I will have to add a photo of this once I unload the car as it's packed away deep in the boot of the car!

The ferry took us back to Uig on Skye and we drove from here to Portree for a car charge, then onto Broadford for the night at Dunollie Hotel.

This was the view from the hotel over breakfast on Sunday morning.

After breakfast we set off to Armadale for the Ferry, again we were able to put the car in line and go off and have a look around. 
Grumpy George the photogropher proved to be anything but grumpy - such a friendly, jolly character, he kept us entertained for a while telling us more ablou life on Skye and his business and pet parrot 'Pepi'.

Pepi is not caged but sits on her perch and call out to customers. When it's time for George to go home Pepi jumps onto his finger and then they go out to the car and travel home!

The short ferry trip took us to Mallaig on the mainland. 
We charged the car here and had time to do a little window shopping.

Our destination for the day was our B & B in Fort William, and it was a beautiful drive. We stopped at a village called Arisag where Alan's mother had been a lady's companion back in the early 1930's.


 We arrived in the Fort William area mid afternoon, this is the garden of Campfield B & B on the bank of Loch Linnhe.

In the garden Snow White leads her team to victory!

We had two nights here as we wanted to explore the area rather than leave again early the next morning.

Thanks for looking
