The Scottish Weather has Finally Arrived

From snow to sunshine, we thought we had escaped the heavy rain, but Scotland didn’t let us down 😉

Becoming experts in our technique for packing the car (bags and instruments galore with just enough space for us humans!), we headed on a bit of a longer, rainy journey yesterday from Skye to Gairloch (back on the main land), going even higher into the highlands. We had a little pit stop in a quaint little village called Plockton, right by the water, finding some cosy seats by the fire for a hot chocolate and some lunch.
The place mats gave us some entertainment! Can you figure them out?

Our rehearsal and concert venue was a church right on the water in a very quiet village called Altbea. We met Sarah from West Coast Arts, who made us tea and a lovely stew for dinner. She was delighted when the room filled up for the concert…. They even had to put out extra seating!

We’re now headed to Newtownmore, back down towards Edinburgh and looking forward to our 6th concert of the tour later.
