(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Mom's 1953 Europe Road Trip - Leaving Scotland

From Mom's Europe trip diary, in the "PLACES VISITED" section:
August 18, 19, & 20 – Road between Bridge of Allan and Larne, Ulster [2 pages]
Next morning [Aug. 20] got up and drove to Stranraer where we waited until 5:15 for car ferry to leave. Also ate lunch on road. Ferry trip 2.5 hours arrived in Larne and spent night at Kings Arms Inn in Larne.
Practically our whole trip through Scotland was in rain so therefore do not have many pictures.
Country very beautiful, especially heather topped hills, black headed sheep, carrot topped kids who were adorable, friendliness of people. 
Enjoyed stay in Scotland very much.
