Summer holidays 2021

Our Summer 2021 holidays! Part 1

After patiently waiting for Mr C to finish work all day we headed off on our way. After getting our 12v tv back the day before still broken we decided to go to Curry’s. We picked up a new tv and use a invertor when we don’t have a electric hook up. Once that was all sorted we spent our first night at one of our favourite campsite Barns highland at Nairn.

With the fridge full of goodies from The Larder. By 9 o’clock our bellies were full and we ready for bed!

We were wakened and organised reasonably early next day. Mr C had some boots saved from Highland Army Surplus so we nipped back there to pick them up. I got a wee dry bag for my pocket camera as I had left my one at home.

Once we had all that sorted we hit the road and finally had everything we could go to our next campsite Fortrose Bay. We did have a wee detour round to Chanonry point but it was very busy and we couldn’t get parked. I hopped out and got a quick few photos in the rain before going to the campsite.

Once parked up we just chilled and watched the rain just enjoying our first day of our holidays.

Later on we ventures back along to Chanonry point with the dogs. It was even busier this time we did sit at the beach area for a little while. With no sign of any dolphins we walked back and picked up a tasty fish supper from McGinty’s fish and chip stop in the village.

On our second day at Fortrose thankfully we woke up to nice weather as we had made plan for a good walk. After breakfast we headed for Rosemarkie.

I’ve been looking at photos of fairy glen and the waterfalls so I couldn’t wait to go. I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

The walk was lovely even though I had wet feet in the first 5 minutes. The dogs had a ball but did have to take Suzi in to the water at Rosemarkie beach to clean her up a bit!

After our 5 miles trek we left the dogs at the van and took a wander in to the village. We stopped off for a look at Fortrose cathedral.

What a amazing place to have in small village. By that time Mr C was ready for a pint. So we went on a mission to find a pub. We eventually found the Union Tavern. A very welcoming pub with good beer.

After a few pints we had a pit stop at the Coop for something for supper. That night we spent getting organised and packed up. The site was lovely and in a great spot with plenty to see and do. But it was time for our next part of our holiday.

Posted lots of links below of the places we stayed, places we visited and even where I got our food!
