I had to say it…

I had to say it…. In my last post entitled – It seemed to be getting better – I forget to tell Covid-19 that it was the heading of a blog post, not a challenge.

Large parts of the UK have had new restrictions imposed on them. Although inconsistent messages appear to be put across to the masses.

But this is a photography blog so lets get back to that. Unfortunately our latest escape became a non household mixing holiday as well, so our numbers were drastically reduced.

So the wife and I toured a part of Scotland we had only previously driven through.

Out of seven days we had a one day of rain. Not too bad for Scotland. The light wasn’t too bad.

It seemed to be slightly quieter than we would have expected, although most of the places we visited were new to us. Having been to Fort William and Glenfinnan before they appeared to be the usual hot spots. Yes they are a bit of drive from Oban. We like to get around and explore when on holiday. It gives us an idea for future places to visit (think of it as scouting) or avoid depending on what we are after.

While the holiday wasn’t what we planned, we feel fortunate to have managed to get away at all. For our next Scottish holiday we are considering another area we havent visited much – the eastern coast. That will be next year when hopefully we won’t be talking about Covid as much.

Between coming back and doing this post there is talk of new restrictions for the Scottish Central region and something similar in parts of England.

Being in October now, it makes you wonder what sort of Christmas to expect…….

I’ve added a collection of other images of Oban in the 12 Pics series available here.
