While most of the UK was basking in cool temperatures and heavy rain, I spent the last week having a relaxing break from it all in Lochgoilhead, Argyllshire. The weather was warm and mostly sunny.

This place has special memories for me dating back 26 years. Our school had a cottage there and our year group stayed there quite regularly when the outdoor activities legislation was much more relaxed. This was my first visit back in all those years.

It is only 2 hours drive from my home, but is at the end of a 5-mile single track road off the main road making it remote enough to leave it largely unspoiled. It has the character and appearance of a typical Scottish Shangri-La.

I hope you like the photos.

It's very hard to take a bad photo up there really. Only 45 mins from Glasgow and yet feels very remote. Very relaxing it was and with lots to do in and around the estate. It hasn't changed that much since I was last there 26 years ago.

Looks really nice. We go up to Fife every other year to see family and head for the highlands. The scenery is so nice and the drives brilliant...No motorways.

Took our son over to Mull last month to visit Tobermory, or if you're a Cbeebies fan 'Balamory'. Really nice place and the weather was great. The other bonus is the extra hour and half of light in the evening compared to the south.

Will have to make a b-line Lochgoilhead the next time we are up.
