As far as London is concerned, I’m not too familiar with hotels so will need to continue my research. In Lochaber, we will most probably stay at the Loch Schiel House Hotel in Acharacle. If you take one look at this place, you will wish you were there now. I certainly do! A quaint hotel set amidst the Scottish Highlands….it certainly is making my wanderlust kick in. A full Scottish breakfast is served every morning and in the evening guests can dine on local salmon or stew simmered in Guinness! And to top off such a quality meal….strawberry shortbread ice cream. My husband drools at the local delicacies but his gluten intolerance keeps him at bay. I just remind him of the Scottish smoked salmon and he walks away happily.
It’s not definite that our family will live in Lochaber and the Fort William area, but it’s a good possibility for a number of reasons. First of all, it’s considered the ‘outdoor capital of the UK’ and for a family it gives us a multitude of activities to do with our little one. Secondly, the house we found is relatively inexpensive and very large. Located next to Loch Schiel, it benefits from its proximity to Fort William and lots of greenery, a river a stone’s throw away, and the Loch which offers all the serenity and beautiful photographic opportunities that Phuket did.
We’re almost there. Wish us luck in closing the move. We’ll adorn our blog with tons of new photos of Scotland soon!
