Dolphins swimming alongside the boat on the Moray FirthThis has got to be the holiday highlight, this clip has a shot of the boat 'Dolphinicity' at Lossiemouth, sailing out of the harbour and of course the dolphins swimming alongside the boat out on the Moray Firth and doing their dipping, diving and generally showing off!  Wow!

Another day in the cottage and another mealSee us (well, Mike really) prepare a meal of Spag Bol in the cottage kitchen and easily get distracted from the task by pouring the wine and then enjoy eating (and drinking) it in the lounge where we discuss what's on the agenda for the next day's exciting Scotland touring!

Looking for the monster out on Loch NessAs we cruise on Loch Ness the man advises us to keep a lookout for the monster popping up beside us (ooh er), plus we see Urquhart Castle along the shores of the Loch.  No sign of Mike in this shot - has he been eaten by the monster?  Maybe he IS the monster!
