New Year's Eve, Oban Style!

I went up to Scotland with Tom for New Year's at his friend Fee's place.  It was a laid back trip which included their friend Helen, and Fee's sister and sister-in-law.  The highlight was watching The Hobbit on New Year's Day.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.

On our stop in Glasgow, Tom took me to a cheesemonger's in West Glasgow.  I don't remember what it was called.  It was about the size of our shop in Stratford, but set up more like a deli.  

Driving to Oban, just past the fork in the road where you have to choose between Fort William and Oban.   For those of you who have made the journey, it is just past the Green Wellie Stop!  The really cool thing was that as soon as we turned towards Oban, the show appeared.
Just some ducks we fed on our walk in to town.
The harbour at Oban.
New Year's Eve was a house party.  Since Fee and her sister are half German, Jaeger had to consumed (God help us all!)
This is one of the only pictures from New Year's Eve (that does not involve certain people sing their own version of Gangnam Style).
On 2 January we had a great dinner/late lunch, made for us by the ladies.
I had a great time, as expected.  I love Scotland!
