Road Trip 2010

In June and July 2010, Jo and I spent two weeks on the road: travelling by car from our home in Switzerland to the north of Scotland and back again. These posts detail some of the highlights of our trip.

OK, OK, I know: I'm a city boy at heart. But I defy anyone to be less than impressed when rounding a corner on a lonely road in the Scottish Highlands at dusk to be confronted with a hillside covered in wild red deer.

Tarbat Ness Lighthouse

The classic lighthouse of the children's storybook is a tall white tower, banded with red and surrounded on most sides by the sea, looming above treacherous rocks and shining its light far and wide to tell people to stay away.

It had long been a goal of Jo's and mine to extend our walking and “bag” one of the Lakeland fells. However, we hadn't anticipated doing so in quite such a challenging way.
