All around Scotland in a 206

So two weeks ago the boyfriend and I set out on an adventure around Scotland in my little, green, Peugeot 206. Originally the plan was to go to Dumfries, Oban, Nairn, Perth and Edinburgh but whilst we were in Oban we decided to stay put to allow us some time to see the Isle of Mull. So the final route was this...


I took loads of pictures and we saw plenty. I spent far too much and bought plenty of new yarn and quirky little accessories. So, I have loads of pictures, galleries and purchases to share with you. It was a two week holiday so bear with me...plenty of nice pictures and then my purchases to follow.

We saw plenty of castles, more than I can count, but all had beautiful views...this one was taken at Threave Castle.

And a really cute toilet (of all things) in a pub in Newburgh. After frequenting this toilet on the way back from St Andrews (whilst staying in Perth) we found THE MOST amazing shop I have ever found and which now I am completely in love with!

Kit&Caboodle is a vintage/furniture/textile/Treasure Trove, I took loads of pictures and the lady who owns it was so kind and friendly.

The ship that just grabbed the boyfriends attention, was purchased for £23 and was consequently cradled all the way home with loving care!

And finally the blue fronted shop (above) is K1 Yarns. A very nice knitting boutique with a very helpful lady and great customer service selling Scottish and other luxury yarns.

These are just a sprinkling of images, there are plenty more on my Flickr site which you can visit by clicking the link on the side of my blog. I'm off to take some pics of my purchases which I will share later.

Enjoy, x
