Scotland Adventure: Day Five


In comparison to the previous days, Day Five would be more of a relaxing day for us.  It would be a traveling day and we did have to drive about a 370 km from the Isle of Skye to the ferry docks for the Isle of Arran. Nothing like climbing mountains or facing hurricane winds and ‘Bar Code” rain, but it was still a great adventure. 

For me I was the driver for the first leg of the trip down from Skye.  As I have stated many times, I love to drive. For me the journey is as enjoyable as the destination.  Yes I have to be very aware of my surroundings and I do take my role as driver very seriously and at times it can be stressful.  Yet for me driving is exciting.  When I get behind the wheel it’s like I am at the helm of an old ocean vessel, embarking on a voyage of discovery and adventure.   The road ahead of me has endless destinations and wonders that can excite the soul.  

In Canada and United States I have driven hundreds of kilometres, going from city to city, state to state and province to province.  There have been days where I have driven over 1,000 km just because I can.  I have seen the vast beauty Canada has to offer and to this day no matter how many times I have seen it, it still inspires me.  Scotland was no different.  Driving up to Skye, even through the snowstorm, was beautiful. Now driving down to the Isle of Arran it was equally spectacular, but thankfully no snow.  Sometimes words don’t do it justice; therefore I will let some of the photos of Scotland speak for themselves.  Don’t worry, I wasn’t the one taking photos.  Another member of our Scottish crew was documenting the journey. 

In the end I was fortunate to be able to drive most of the trip down and our other driver took us onto the ferry and onto Arran.  I was grateful for the experience and the memories of Scotland’s vast beauty will inspire me for years to come. And though that part of the journey was over, I was looking forward to our last leg of our Scotland trip.  The Isle of Arran and at the picturesque Auchrannie Resort.  A few days of sight seeing and staying at a resort with a pool, hot tubs, spa and fine dinning.  I love the journey and it was great but the destination will be equally as enjoyable.
