This morning, our tour group first availed of some fresh soft fruit (raspberries and strawberries) at Dunkeld and then proceeded into central Scotland first to Amulree and then to Kenmore via the narrow mountain road passing Glen Quaich and encountering many sheep.

We stopped for a short while at Kenmore, at northern tip of Loch Tay  before moving on to Fortingall and the famous ancient yew tree which may be thousands of years old.

After Fortingall, we continued into Glen Lyon  ( valley of the River Lyon) and along an increasingly poor quality and single track road  which eventually brought us out at the southern tip of Loch Tay, at Killin. Along this road we caught a glimpse of a couple of Red Deer.

At Killin, we stopped to view the Falls of Dochart, at the southern end of the town and then moved on through Callander to Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s top visitor attractions. Here we visited the Great Hall, Royal Apartments, Kitchens and Weaving Room.
