I’ve just been looking through old railway tickets and just found out. I can add the following stations to my list.

  • Dalmuir
  • Pollokshaws West
  • Welling

It also turns, out the very time first, I went to Oban by train was, way back on 21st September 1996. For two adults and children it was only £35! Wish it was that price now! Oh and also included the ferry over to Mull.

During today’s tour of Scotland we left the “mainland” of Mull and got a ferry over to Iona, which is small island in the Inner Hebrides. It’s about 1 mile wide and 4 miles long.

It’s also got one of the best beaches, I’ve ever seen in the UK! Only downside, the water was very, very COLD!!! Would have needed a winter wetsuit to go swimming! Maybe I am looking for a reason to wear a wetsuit!! 😛
