Here are some photos from the very first time, I went to London! Way back in November 2002 with my boyfriend of the time… Just to think, I was only 21 or 22 at the time! Like another, life time ago!

Of course, I’ve been back, many, many times since!

So, so pleased with myself! That I’ve just ✅ off Corrour railway station! Which is the highest railway station in the UK, it’s also not accessible by any public roads!! Which gives you, an idea of just how remote it really is!

If you can, at some point in your life, I would recommend you travel up to Corrour railway station! It’s by far the best railway station, that I’ve ever been too!

WOW! Can’t believe that Neil, my older brother Douglas and myself, walked the whole of the Crinan Canal in both directions, a distance of around 20 miles! So maybe the longest single day walk, that any of us done!

It really does live up to it’s name, of Britain’s most beautiful shortcut!

During our drive, up to the to Crinan Canal, we stopped off at Carnasserie Castle, which is a Historic Scotland site, I had never been to before! If ever in the Lochgilphead, I would check it out, if I was you! Even better, it’s 100% free, so no need to join Historic Scotland. But, of course, I would recommend that you do!
