Cycling and sailing in Scotland – Oban

Sunday, August 20, 2017 Oh yes, my hotel bed was as comfortable as it looked. It is 6:30a.m., and I don’t want to get up. Right now I would not mind staying in Edinburgh for my entire holiday.

Again we were spoiled by the nice summer weather, like so often on this journey before.
