Granada & Alhambra October 2010

We decided to take a couple of days with our pals to visit Granada and the Alhambra Palace, the last Moorish stronghold in Spain back in the distant past. What a great site. The Cathedral and the Palace are well worth a visit. We had a great time

James of the Glen walk

Walk up to James of the Glens Bothey. He was the guy who featured in the story "Kidnapped"
by R.L Stevenson. A real person who was hanged for the supposed murder of The "Red Fox" Colin Campbell. Sarah has earmarked this as an overnight stop on our Clansmans walk. She may be on her own !!!

Oban is a very nice town with a lovely harbour. Above the town is Mc Caig's tower which is more of a Folly than a tower. Wonderful views.

Off to Oban

Lovely scenery on way to Oban site.
Weather was quite good and we found the site very nice. We had visited it before on a rainy night, this time it looked a lot better.
