Today, my theme is castles of Scotland of which there are at least 600, mainly ruins, ranging from just a few remnants, e.g.Polnoon, to complete specimens such as Stirling.

In the course of my tours of Scotland I invariably include a few castles, more by request, especially when guests have clan or family history which connects them to such structures.

This evening, my theme is Scottish Glens. ‘Glen’ is a Scots word for valley. Because of the mountainous terrain Scotland is very well populated with Glens and valleys. I am going to focus on seven glens with which I am familiar and feature on my tours and travels.

This evening, I have chosen for my theme the topic of my favourite Scottish lochs (lakes). Scotland has many thousand lochs of which perhaps only a tiny minority regularly feature on the ‘tourist trail’ including such famous waterways as Loch Ness and Loch Lomond. My personal favourites, based on real world touring experiences, are listed below with appropriate images.
 
Scottish lochs offer a wide range of options for the visitor including fishing, boating, photography, bird watching, sailing and various water sports all or any of which can be incorporated in my various personalized tours of Scotland.
