Glencoe with Gems Part 2 - The Clachaig Inn and beyond!

We walked through Glencoe village to the country road to the Inn and happened to pass a Spanish lady wearing a fab olive green waterproof coat!  Lovely R went to ask her (and practice his Spanish) where it was from for me!  Sadly it is some little known make which I've never found.

The walk along the tree-lined road was lovely, especially after a couple of wines, I was a little hyper and running ahead or lagging behind to take photos.

I love coming across heart shaped things in nature and spotted this heart shaped leaf (which I suspect someone placed) sitting perfectly in a tree trunk!

We soon arrived at the Clachaig and ordered dinner and a few pints of cider...

The serious business of saucing!

Happy tums and happy faces!  :)

Steak & Ale pie, chips, cabbage and clapshot.

R rocks my sunglasses!

The next morning we packed up and had croissants and bread with bovril for breakfast before splitting into teams! Gemma, Margie and R all did the fit thing of hiking up the Pap of Glencoe, whereas Nik and I went for a flat walk round Glencoe Lochan hunting for shrooms!

Imagine that view from your front garden!

So much blue sky!

This slug had devoured one of the shrooms!

After picking up the guys from their hike, we headed to a cute little cafe by the village for lunch before heading back down the road to Glasgow.

We enjoyed a P!nk  and Kelly Clarkson sing-along (although I'm not sure the boys did!)  It was SUCH a fab weekend, we're so lucky it's only a couple of hours away from Glasgow and we can head up there for a day trip or a quick weekend away.
