So kind of you to give this a Y * steve as you see by information it was the first shot of the wee break!, while waiting for the throng of fellow coach passengers to get their keys for their rooms, I decided to follow advice and get a look at the Cobbler. Just as well, for we never did get another good view, never went to Rest and be Thankful either, maybe next time?

Good to have you pop in, mate

Take care

Mike

Ah, such a long time since I was there, Mike.

Cheers, Tony in New Zealand

So glad it brought a wee memory for you Tony, it is a lovely view from the hotel entrance.

Hello Bonnie Lad, you've had some sunshine ... and what a lovely view from the Claymore Hotel. But I'm a wee bit worried about the other trippers - where are the wee dolly shops, the tartan paraphernalia, and the purple heather sprays covered in eau de lavender in this photo? How did they cope with the stunning views and no shops? Or did they just sit and watch the TV? ;-)

Ca canny noo, Amelia

Hiya BWL, as I said, this is a photo from the front door of the hotel that I took while the hoards were getting their keys (I waited while there was a staff member to carry my case and push Betty to my room, aam no daft!)

I reckon I got a good few pictures in all, but had to delete a lot of the ones taken through the bus window because of the rain drops & reflections.On the whole the grub was great & the room was fine, best of all the bar was free!

I hope to go again sometime next year when the days are longer, but aal no gan oan the middle day coach trip, travelling miles to go somewhere to rush aroond fer an hoor an a half tryin' to get a cuppa and a sarnie, see the sights and wonderin' where the hell the coach is parked!

Aye guid to breathe yon Scottish air again tho!

Take good care

Mike
