Scotland 2014 Day 7: Fort William and Spean Bridge
Up at 7:45am! And... let's do this! We had a quick breakfast at the hotel and said bye to most of the wedding party and then headed out. It was just a quick 1.5 hr drive to Glasgow for Indian Food for lunch :) This trip is amazing.
The drive was pretty fast and we dropped the car in a parking lot at a mall. First sight as we stepped inside the mall? An old -school SWEET SHOP. YES. SERIOUSLY. The first thing that caught my eye were "fried eggs", gummy candies that look like little fried eggs. And then... I saw... "the strawberries"... the singlemost memorable candy from my childhood in England. I hadn't seen these in 17 YEARS and have been searching for them for ages. This was NUTS. I got Norm some as a gift... she is gonna freak out. :) So psyched.
|Oh. My. Word.|
|Welcome back to my childhood in England|
After that we were in a mall, so that is always fun in a foreign country. We went to Boots and the Disney Store. I was hoping to see a Mickey in a kilt, and I did actually see one.
|Well, that's odd|

|"The turnoff" we'd seen twice before alongside Loch Lomond, this time we were finally taking the turn towards Fort William!|
|Oooooh that's a tiny road|
We made it up to Ben Nevis Distillery after passing through some really awesome scenery in the Glen Coe area.

|This train rocks|
Here's a cool video of the steam coming out of the train:
That was awesome. We finished dinner and then headed to the Spar convenience store.
|Heev having an awesome time|
I ended up getting a Ribena blackcurrant juice (man I sure remember that, it was basically the only juice we ever bought while in England!), a Galaxy Caranel, and a Lion Ice Cream.
|Welcome to my childhood in England, again|
Anyway, after another amazing day, it was time for a good sleep!
