Eight days until we leave for our month in Scotland.
We'll fly into Edinburgh; pick up our car; drive right past the front door of Susan Boyle's house in West Lothian on our way to Oban on the western coast.
From Oban we turn south and cross the "Bridge Over the Atlantic" onto the Isle of Seil.
And this cottage will be our home for the first week of our trip. Balvicar.
The owner has been a dream to work with, and a magnificent source of information about the immediate area.
I'm so ready for a vacation. Mentally and emotionally, that is. I'm nowhere near ready in the literal sense. So much to do to mothball the house, tie up loose ends at work, begin thinking about packing.
