Northern Ireland to Western Ireland

Ruins of a castle near the Giant's Causeway:

Had a look at the Giant's Causeway at the northern point of Ireland.

Drumcliff church where Yeats is buried with his wife, George.

A few shots from Tuam, where Catherine Higgins and Thomas Carrick were born.

Amber Bay guesthouse, Salthill, near Galway, where we stayed just before we went to the Aran Islands.

A few scenes from Galway City.

Glasgow to Dublin to Belfast to Bushmills

Arrived in Dublin about 1pm

Picked up the car and headed to Belfast.

Belfast ...

St Patrick's Cathedral in Belfast where John Joseph Walters (Mum's grandfather) was baptised in 1871.

Bentinck Street where the Walters family lived.

And we finally arrived at the Causeway Lodge at Bushmills.

St Andrews to Glasgow

Drove from St Andrews to Dundee. Great view from the top of the hill called Dundee Law.

And then onto Perth ...

Stopped at a cute little place just outside of Perth for tea, toast and soup with a cute little dog, Luke.

A few other beautiful Scottish scenes along the way to Glasgow.

Luckily, we missed the rain that we were warned about.

Some ducks at Duck Bay.

And finally arriving at the Ivory Hotel in Glasgow.
