Day 33 – UK – Scenery, scenery and yet more scenery

IMG_4500

Just how beautiful can one country be. We woke to blue skies again and set off at 8.30am for the scenic coast road to Ullapool. We started off with more rolling green farm areas and I was beginning to wonder if the whole coastal area would be like this. But then we spotted the mountains in the distance.

The scenery was just incredible and around every corner or bend it was even better. I lost count of the times Pop and I said beautiful, amazing, gorgeous, fantastic, spectacular and awesome. Words fail to describe the land we drove through so hopefully these photos will capture some of it. And truly amazing part was that everywhere was 360 degree views.

We stopped at Smoo Cove to stretch our legs and take some photos.

Later we stopped at a Spar and bought some lunch ingredients. I few minutes up the road we found the most amazing place to eat. There was even a picnic table for us to have our picnic lunch. It was a little chilly out but it was too magical a day to eat indoors.

Driving on down the coast (and slightly inland) we had a number of photo stops, including Ardvreck Castle.

We were admiring the view (again) and coming down a big hill when I spotted our caravan park in the distance. WOW!! Another magical location.

Once set up the girls went off to play on the stone beach. Pop & I enjoyed a cup of tea/coffee then we all went for a walk around the park. I took LOTS of photos.

Poppy and I relaxed. I thought it only fitting to read Coast magazine.
