Tuesday 30th August 2016......a good first day!!!!!

My hostess was off to work before 8am and I never saw her but she had told me to help myself to breakfast and I did and then on the road by 9am...the car drives really well and I like it!!!
My first stop was


Not sure what kind of tree this is....




 My first Scottish waterfall!!
Drove some lonely but gorgeous viewing roads!!!



What can you about a guy like this!!!!!

This was not well sign posted but a great piece of history!!!




My last falls of the day although these are really small cascades but very beautiful surroundings!!!

To eat...do not know the story but this once lovely church is now....
Arrived at my air bnb and this is the view from my bedroom window
Yes that is Loch Lomand and I think all night I shall be singing'On the bonnie bonnie banks of loch lomand!
My lovely room Jane and her son very welcoming and had a relaxing evening catching up on this blog and planning tomorrow's drive!!

Yashi Kochi!!!
