Oh…. so today was our last day in Scotland.
As usual we awoke to a hearty Scottish breakfast. Then we loaded the car and Bob ran off to the Callander butcher and bought 2 Haggis (or is it Haggi????) and 4 massive sirloin steaks, wonderfully marbled with fat. It took longer than usual as the butcher is a chatty man and they had a lot to talk about.
Anyway, we set off from Callander at about 1030. I must say that we have enjoyed our short Scottish break. The Waverley Hotel is a very pleasant place to stay: dab right in the centre of town; fabulous bar; comfortable bedrooms and a more than adequate restaurant. There are undoubtedly better restaurants in town, but if you are looking for a comfortable, quiet bed, great hearty breakfast and some pre dinner cocktails, there is no finer location than the Waverley.
The weather turned fine for us today: Blue skies and patchy clouds. If we’d had this weather for our entire week, it would have been better. yes…. but wisdom dictates on a visit to Scotland: expect rain, more than you think….. yes… even you.. you that come from a rainy country…. look around…. are the fields all green??? yes?…. it rains a lot here….
Have loved our break in Perthshire, around Callander. Lots to do. Some great restaurants… none of them poor. So many great activities. Come back again soon.
