The second half of our Scottish Highlands trip started with a lovely lunch in Fort Augustus, where we met this lovely lady:

Then we made our way to Castle Urquhart, which has some impressive ruins, and the sun came out to welcome us:

We managed to look round most of the castle before it started raining again:

We stayed the next two nights in Plockton, where it was a little too grey for the bay to be seen in its best light:

We did spend quite a lot of time in the car, but the views out the window were definitely worth it:

It was perhaps most dramatic on the drive to Applecross, which was steep and narrow:

On our last day, the weather smiled on us again when we went to visit the gardens around Attadale House:

There was even enough sun to tell the time by the giant sundial:

The gardens were very varied - they even had a geodesic dome:

There were interesting rock sculptures in the woods:

And a beautiful Japanese garden with a place to complete a cleansing ritual on the way in:

The humans and I had an excellent time, and we will definitely be returning to the Scottish Highlands for more holidays in the future.
