This morning, I collected a mini-coach group totalling 15 persons from central Glasgow and then proceeded as follows:

Ben Lomond and Loch Lomond

  • Fisrt stop at the quaint and colorful heritage village of Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond. Here we viewed the immaculate cottage gardens together with vistas of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond (mountain).
  • Next we headed north tracking Loch Lomond then to Tyndrum and the desolate Rannoch Moor to the rugged scenery of Glencoe where we stopped for a photo shoot. Main stop was the visitor centre at Glencoe where we availed of some lunch before continuing north.

  • Our next target destination was Castle Urquhart on Loch Ness via the Great Glen. This was a nice trip in fine weather.
  • Upon arriving at Castle Urquhart we spent about 1 hour admiring the castle and associated Loch Ness scenery which was quite impressive in the afternoon sunshine. Quite a few tour boats on the famous loch also.

  • After completing our visit to Loch Ness we doubled back down the Glen to Spean Bridge from where we turned into central Scotland and across to Dalwhinnie and the Pitlochry. Unfortunately, our journey was impeded by a long line of motorcyclists from Germany who were trundling along about 40mph.
  • After Pitlochry, we turned right to Aberfeldy then, following the River Tay to Kenmore where we availed of a brief stop and then on, tracking Loch Tay, down through Killin to Crianlarich, Loch Lomond and eventually Glasgow . Here we parted company with fond farewells after a long day in the Scottish Highlands.
