|NOW, if you live in Wolverhampton (which we do) you should probably head SOUTH when you leave Scotland and head home. Sounds a bit simple for us to be honest. So breakfast on the 6th of Feb is spent peering at the road map with a hangover and we decide the best route might be the A97 north to Standing Stones of Urquhart which we know nothing about, but its on the map and, to be honest, is pretty lame, overgrown and miserable. There was a poo on top of the talest stone. Not a small poo either. I later learned this is probably a fox poo as they mark their territory by deficating on the highest points. I'm waiting for the foxes trying to claim Stonehenge.
Anyway, we continued out journey home by heading west (obviously) and vising the Sueno Stone which is amazing and the people in change of Aberlemno could take a minute to consider this way of preserving the stones yet still let visitors actually SEE the things! We had planned to press on the the Clava Cairns but we were starting to run short on time and wanted to buy huge amounts of Stags Breath Liquer from the visitor centre at Loch Ness (yumyum) so we opted for starting to actaully head south (towards our destination) and had a wonderful drive through winding roads with stunning views.
We think next Christmas we will try again... but with better preparation for extra stone viewing pleasure!!
