East Coast Holiday
My brother came up for a weeks holiday, and so we headed across to the East Coast for a few days, passing through Highland Perthshire, along the Fife Coast again, then from Dundee to Aberdeen along the Angus Coast, before a final day exploring the far north east of Aberdeenshire and then home down the A95 and A86 to Lochaber once more. It was a brief tour, where we only experienced the most obvious attractions of the coast, but doubtless I shall return in the future!
Aberdeenshire Coast - 3rd October
For the final day of our holiday tour, we wandered round Aberdeen
in the daylight, before heading north through Peterhead
, then on to the Lighthouse Museum at Fraserburgh
, before turning westwards once more. Our final stop, before the rain forced us to give up was the film set at Pennan
Angus Coast - 2nd October
After finding breakfast on the banks of the Tay in Dundee, we headed east through Broughty Ferry
and on to Arbroath
home to an Abbey and small museum about the Bell Rock Lighthouse. Next we turned inland to Brechin
, then back to the coast at Montrose
is technically in Kincardineshire, and then we reached Aberdeen
for the night.
Fife (Again) - 1st October
One of the reasons for heading west was to show my brother Fife
, and despite a gloomy start, we were lucky with the weather as we headed east along the coast to St Andrews, before crossing the Tay Bridge to Dundee.
Highland Perthshire - 30th September
Our first day of the holiday was spent relaxing with a little drive across Morvern. However, day two had a much better forecast (it was wrong as normal), so we set off on our journey eastwards, stopping in the pretty little town of Killin
, before climbing over to Loch Lyon. We then headed back to Loch Tay and stopped at the Crannog Centre
near Aberfeldy, before crossing the mountains once more to Loch Rannoch, and so Rannoch Station
. We retraced our steps (on the opposite shore) along Loch Rannoch, then on along Loch Tummel, before heading to Kinross for the night.
