Easter and planning a trip back to Scotland

It’s the holidays, at last! Actually, if I’m honest, they feel a bit like we’re having them early this year, mainly because my niece isn’t off till next week and ours usually follow hers. I will never understand why schools vary their holidays so much but I’m just glad we have a WHOLE 17 days off school. Well, Z does and he is totally thrilled about it. I still have work through the two weeks so we’ll still be juggling but it’ll be a lot easier and we have some days off together.

As everyone’s been poorly over the last month we’ve forgotten to plan anything for this Easter break. We’re now frantically googling pretty places and I *think* we might be heading to Scotland. The whole bloomin country is so pretty it’s proving really hard to decide which bits we want to see but we’re veering towards Glencoe and the West coast. There is SO much to see and we need to be really strict with ourselves with two kids. We still have just over a week to plan so the mission is on to try to come up with a doable itinerary. If you’ve ever been that way then please give me your tips. At the moment Glencoe and Fort William and Oban and Tobermory all look good!

And isn’t the weather glorious? Sort of. I was loving all the clouds and gorgeous skies yesterday.   Today is back to being a bit overcast but I’m trying to be optimistic about the weather and hoping Easter is filled with sunny and warmer temperatures. Please let there be sun!

  1. Oh that rain today was torrential ! But we have more sun coming tomorrow thank goodness. Ah I love Scotland I am excited to see where you go? Have a lovely time what ever you decide and enjoy the break I am so glad Schools have broken up. Although Jack does have a revision day which as you can imagine he is thrilled x

  2. Ooo yeay definitely come to Scotland. I am a huge fan of the West Coast and moving back there soon. I’d say give Fort Bill a miss except passing through but Oban and Mull are a must. And Iona!! #365

  3. We still have a week to go but we’re looking forward to the kids having a couple of weeks off and a chance to recharge a bit. We haven’t been to Scotland for years but it’s definitely on the list to do with our kids sooner rather than later.

  4. I’d agree with Fee, Fort William is fine for a quick wander if you’re passing, but definitely go to Oban, one of my all-time favourite places, and head over to Mull which is also fab. The drive through Glencoe is a must, stunning! Depending on how long you have, Skye is also gorgeous. The West Coast is wonderful, anywhere will be good πŸ™‚ I’m jealous!

  5. Enjoy your trip to Scotland. We’ll be there in summer. Love to know what you think of Glencoe. I fear my ancestors were involved in a bit of a skirmish there, coming from Macdonald stock! #MySundayPhoto

  6. nice scenic picture with a great sky. I love clouds.
    I agree the west coast of Scotland is beautiful, but then I live here.
    Oban is amazing but so far away from anywhere.
    Iona is magical and Mull was boring but then we have went by bus and could not stop where we may well have wanted to.

  7. I’ve still got to travel on the west coast, but I’ve still got so much to see over here on the East where I live.
    I think you’ll find masses to see and do here in Scotland, castles, country walks….the great outdoors. All brilliant for occupying tiddlywinks whilst providing a great break and recharge for you too. The air alone is incredible!
    I’ll be interested to see where you head and I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the weather behaves for you πŸ˜€
