    That second one looks like it's been on the wrong end of some significant target practice!

    I'm going with the road to Ardno across the loch from Inverary. I might even go so far as to say it's by the lovely Thistle Guest House?

    There is a small amount of blue sky top right, so unlikely to be Scotland.

    to paraphrase a song played on the tour bus where we pulled in to take that pic, 'I've been in Jockland since ye!!' :rolleyes::shock::D:cool:

    Must admit, it was a beautiful part of the world I'd not seen before. The ferry from McInroy's Point to Hunter's Quay c/w escorting dolphins added to the experience. Lot of property for yer money too. Free university, prescriptions makes me think about retirement :rolleyes:

    That is indeed a fantastic part of the world, seems like something untouched around every corner, Otter Ferry particularly beautiful I think....

    Not quite Otter Ferry in the pic, nor the Thistle Guest House, but getting warmer ;)
