Scotland: Colintraive

After we spent some time in the bigger cities we decided we wanted to stay in the countryside for the rest of our time in Scotland. We ended up renting a house in a tiny little town called Colintraive, which is about 2 1/2 hours west of Glasgow. It's situated on an inlet from the ocean and the view from our front window was stunning. It looked out across the Isle of Bute. We saw sailboats floating by all day long and even saw a few dolphins!

It rained almost every single day we were in Scotland. And I mean it rained. Our last two days we finally saw some sunshine and soaked it up while the tide was out.

Colintraive is the greatest little picturesque Scottish countryside town. I'd highly recommend it if that's the vacation you're looking for. The Colintraive Hotel is also lovely. I highly recommend eating there, even if you don't stay there. I had the best homemade tomato soup I've ever had before!
