our last day, a day of motorway travel, but we tried to make the most of it! :-)
( Ashton Memorial and Little Moreton Hall )
so that's it. 18 days, 13 bases, 8 Scottish Breakfasts, .....*ahem* beers, 7 days of sunshine, just 1 day of rain, 2500 miles, 2000 photos! That was quite some holiday!
We coped with the constant packing/unpacking quite well, although we brought too much in the way of practical clothing, which wasn't worn. Despite the high prices of petrol and food, we surprisingly spent* less than we'd budgeted for, mainly because there wasn't much one had to actually pay to see during the first week and we made good use of our national trust card whenever we could.
The east didn't really get a chance, sadly because of the duller weather and just that the west coast was so stunning.
The only slight regret, planning wise would have been to have spent less time on the journey home (ie from Rogart to Lancaster) and used those extra days in Gairloch and possibly Fort William area.
Definately want to go back to Gairloch sometime, the countryside around there is quite possibly the most beautiful place I've ever been to. But next year, back to Leipzig - hotel booked already!
* although a large part of my budget did go on stuff like this :-)
