Sunday 31st of July 2022

Heading your way September 7, for two weeks. Very excited...been there once before for three weeks. This time going with two couples with two cars rented. Hotels arranged along with the cars and the flights, but we are on our own for all the food. One couple travels extensively, the other has been to Scotland once with the other couple.

Hope the world holds together long enough for the trip. See you there, Kelly Carroll (pretty Irish)
