This is the Bridge Over The Atlantic at Easedale island and old slate mine community with a brewery and a great crafts shop, Golden Eagle in the mountains and fishing in the Loch.


A little bit of a hairy drive over with the tag axle wheels leaving the ground as you go over the top!

A great 5 days, stopped over in Northampton after the drop offs and back home this afternoon.

A few days off now back on Saturday to Lochs and Glens Ardgartan Hotel, Sue coming with me for her 1st trip.

2nd Tour, 4day to LochAwe Hotel.

Looking forward to this one but had pick ups over in Lancashire, I started in Morecambe with my last puck up in Penrith. We Stopped at Gretna Green on the way up and after a. Drive along side Loch Lomond we arrived at the hotel about 4 pm.

This was the view from my bedroom window.

Kippers and Haggis for breakfast.

1st day cruise on Loch Lomond followed by lunch at the Ardgartan hotel (I'm there in a weeks time) then free time in Inverrary.

Day 2 was a trip to the Sea Life Sanctuary.

Followed by lunch in Fort William
then a leisurely drive through Glen Coe, stopping at the view point opposite the "3 sisters".
A panorama view of the 3 sisters.
A stag stayed all the time we were there there having it's lunch.
Another great crowd who again showed their appreciation.



1st Tour 6 day Loch Tummel Hotel


A great group of people and had a wonderful time with trips to Aberfoyle, Blair Castle, Pilochry, Balmoral, Ballater, St Andrews,Dundee up the notorious A93 to Glenshee, the highest public road in the UK at over 2000ft. Lots of tight roads but the tri-axle I'm driving is very manoeuvrable.

The view from my room.

Aberfoyle Black Watch Memorial.
St Andrews
Smallest TV remote I've ever seen.
My wardrobe all sorted.



One of my new coaches.

Although I'm employed by Proctors, I'm doing all my driving for Lochs and Glens in Scotland.


My Neo Plan outside Lochawe Hotel near Dalmally.

Lots of changes in my working life lately, I've now moved over to work for Proctors at Leeming Bar.

I had this rather nice Man Neo Plan for the last 4 days.
