At the ferry we were joined by Philly, Jim and Forfar John all thankfully Norton mounted, once on the peninsula it was heaven, this is still a largely undiscovered part of Scotland so really I should keep it to myself. A nice night at the pub on Friday night and a nice meal, Bill I believe was trying for a late drink by offering to sing a song however the barmaid said if he did he wouldn't get back on the Saturday, obviously she has heard his singing before!
Saturday and everyone scattered to do their own thing, we went for a walk and eventually met up with my brother John and Lesley at the Ariundle centre and enjoyed a relaxed beer, (we were relaxed, not sure if the beer was) Saturday night we had a rerun of last year, the ladies prepared the BBQ assisted by Bill the BBQ guy and a very pleasant evening was spent in great company and much cheapness. I think Bill and John won the award for last out!
Sunday dawned as it usually does following Saturday and we all went our separate ways home, the A82 was terrible, busy and endless processions of traffic, Scotland in the Summer I suppose! A great weekend and a big thanks to all that came along and made it such a success! Next up for the mighty Tay Valley NOC is our Applecross weekend in July, be there or be talked about!
