Yes, it's that time of year again! As usual we've been squirrelling money away since last year and by the time we get in the car to head north everything will be accounted for - no credit card bills to stress about while we're away!
We've got all sorts of plans for this year's trip - it will be the first time we've stayed over on the west side of the Island - which is quite exciting all on its own as it means that we will be within walking distance of some beautiful beaches. I'm planning at least one day when we take a picnic, amble to the beach, and spend all day wandering, paddling, reading and generally lazing about before ambling back. doesn't that sound like a perfect day?
We'll be aiming to continue our theme of lots of walks elsewhere too - I particularly fancy redoing a walk we last did back in 2007 - down on South Uist, from the end of the Loch Carnan road across to Loch Skipport - giving an amazingly different view of our favourite old Pier. With being up later in the year than on that occasion we're hoping that it might be a little drier underfoot than the last time, too = I seem to recall that we both ended up with soggy socks that time!
