Welcome to Birds & Beer Extra. A cynical ploy to gain more bandwith for photos and to try to not dissuade people interested in Norfolk birding from giving up reading a load of irrelevant stuff.

If you have arrived here directly, I'd advise checking out my main blog http://jamesbirdsandbeer.blogspot.com/. If you intended to come here, wow, thanks!

Scotland Trip - Links & Tips

Places we visited:

http://www.glenmorelodge.org.uk/ - Somewhat basic accommodation but cheap and well located between Aviemore and Cairngorm.

http://www.copelandhouse.com/ - Lovely B&B in Tobermory on Mull. Good decor and shortbread on arrival.

http://www.boathotel.co.uk/ - Hotel & restaurant at Boat of Garten. Nice food, reasonable prices, but we felt a bit out of pkace being so scruffy.

http://www.oldbridgeinn.co.uk/ - A pub in Aviemore. The food menu looked so fancy we didnt eat there, but a good location for birding, we got Osprey and Whooper Swan from here.

MacGochans (no website). Pub/restaurant in Tobermory. Good food, nice beer, but expensive, £4.10 per bottle of ale for our visit.
