This afternoon, I collected guests from Fort William in the Scottish Highlands and proceeded as follows:

First, south along Loch Linnhe to historic village of Glencoe. This was site of famous massacre in 1692, Here a military unit of Campbells killed about 35 people from local Clan MacDonald community. We also looked in to the Clachaig Inn to view the ‘No Campbells’ sign.
