Summer 2022- is the pandemic over??

Following the Queens Jubilee celebrations, we dared to leave N.Ireland for the first in nearly three years and took outer trusty camper to Edinburgh. I did not just bring memories home but Covid as well extending my time off work a bit more!

We visited many castles on our journey from Cairnryan, Glencoe, Inverness, Ballater and Drum.
