On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lohman

WE’VE SET UP TEMPORARILY AT ST. BLANES B&B on the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lohman.  We intended to stay only a couple of nights but the location is convenient to so much that we decided to stay a while.  It’s a comfortable place and Helen is a good host; she makes breakfast, cleans the room, lets us use the fridge and otherwise leaves us alone.

Driving along the Loch on a sunny day is a treat, but weekends can be busy.  Loch Lohman is in Glasgow's backyard and returning traffic jams are a fact of life.  Even we, returning to Balloch - not Glasgow, had to detour several miles to avoid a road closed for no apparent reason.  We took a break at the tiny village of Luss.  The village is as scenic as can be and everyone seems to cultivate the most colorful gardens.

We purchased the Historic Scotland pass, a great deal if you plan on spending more than a few weeks in Scotland.  £67 gets a couple of old farts like us into all the Historic Scotland sites and we’ve nearly recouped our investment in only three days!  Many of the sites come with a free audio guide, which is better than a real guide. Their accents are so thick that I have understood only half of what has been said so far - and we haven’t yet reached the Highlands.
