Dave and Cally’s house
I didn’t have to travel too far Sooth for the sun to come out. Lossiemouth has its own micro climate; I definitely should have got myself a posting here when I was in the RAF.
For the second time Dave and Cally were excellent hosts and I was able to relax for a couple of days. On Wednesday in particular the sun shone brightly and I began to feel like I was on holiday again.
As well as doing a bit of planning and booking a hire car (cheaper than a camper van and anyway I’ve got a tent) I went on a couple of dog walks with Cally.
Lossiemouth beach was stunning.
Visibility was so good we could clearly see across the Moray Firth, even as far as Caithness. I was able to test out my newly acquired geographical knowledge to try and identify places. The triangular shaped hill called Morven (the highest point in Caithness) sticks out.
My trip to Scotland wouldn’t be complete without trying a few local dishes; macaroni cheese pies are the way ahead!
After a couple of days of relaxing and sunshine I feel ready to head back up into the rainy North Highlands (the weather forecast is bad).
