The weather was very mixed, but we got out to explore the area whatever the weather. We saw a lot of wildlife, including red deer, red squirrels and an otter (which was very exciting as we've had so many holidays in the Highlands, islands and West Coast of Scotland and this was my first otter!) I'll post more in the next few days.

We had a lovely time in Oban, a small town on the west coast of Scotland, in the middle of glorious countryside, a confusion of lochs, mountains and islands, all in muted autumnal shades at this time of year. We stayed at the lovely Thornloe Guest house, complete with sea views, good veggie breakfasts and two delightful rabbits, Bernard (the grey one at the front) and Hoppy.
