The downside of living in the UK (and especially Scotland) is that the weather is always so unpredictable. When we were promised a couple of hours of sunshine during our time in the West of Scotland, we followed our B&B host's recommendation and got on a cruise around Loch Lomond. The people on board comprised of walkers, bikers and elderly folk being ferried to their next coach trip. We were amongst the very few that were actually doing little else other than photography and cruising leisurely. There are a number of different variations of the cruise but due to the short weather window, we opted for the ninety minute trip around the Loch.
The cruise only cost a tenner ( we got a little discount voucher from our B&B) and was good value for money. One of the ladies on the cruise commented on how it felt very similar to a cruise they did on Lake Como albeit without all the fancy Hollywood star mansions along the shore. The cruise staff were friendly and the on-board commentary (when I followed it, as I still struggle with very strong Scottish accents) was both informative and funny. It was a nice way to spend a couple of sunny hours discovering Loch Lomond within the comfort of a boat.
And now digressing completely, I'd also like to introduce the new pride of my wardrobe, the widely coveted Joseph super-soft leather trousers! I got these at 90% off from Brandalley and I am so chuffed about it. They generally cost over £700 so I feel super pleased for finding these. And for once, Brandalley did not cancel or mess around with my order. Rather than the normal classic black version, I much prefer this orange-red version as it has a lot more character.
