Albi is located on the River Tarn, about 85 km northeast of Toulouse. The episcopal city, situated in the centre of the actual city, around the cathedral, was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 2010.
Everywhere we looked we saw captivating scenes…..
We had to climb 145 uneven stairs to reach our spacious and eclectically-decorated apartment.
And we enjoyed many tastey meals, accompanied by the excellent local wines from the Gaillac region.
As we drove and walked with Julie, Craig, Jean, Skye and Torin the stories of Rob Roy and the song "Loch Lomond" - By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes - kept playing in our heads.
The following day, a Monday, Julie and Jean took us to beautiful Lock Katrine, with its Rob Roy, Sir Walter Scott. the Lady of the Lake and other history. We also found a yummy bakery and a place to have lunch.
