This morning, I collected guests from Edinburgh hotel and proceeded as follows:
- Across Central Belt, through Glasgow to Luss on Loch Lomond. Here we stopped to visit the quaint houses dating from 1850, went on to the pier to view the loch and Ben Lomond (mountain), walked round to the church and the 1100 year old Viking ‘hogback’ grave and then stopped for tea and scones at local restaurant.
- Next we drove north, tracking Loch Lomond, through Crianlarich and Tyndrum to the dge of Rannoch Moor where we stopped to view the scenery and a herd of red deer in the distance.
- Next, on across Rannoch Moor to Glencoe. Here we made stops to view scenery and more deer before availing of lunch at the Clachaig Inn where there was a magnificent stag grazing in the grounds.
- Next, past Loch Leven to Fort William, tracking Loch Linnhe. We passed through fort William and on to Glen Nevis where we stopped to admire a small herd of Highland Cows. Next, on to Lower Falls at end of the Glen.
- Next, on to Glenfinnan on Loch Schiel, the landing place of Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745. Here also is the Glenfinnan Viaduct aka ‘Harry Potter Bridge’.
- Finally, we arrived at our destination of Mallaig, a fishing village. We overnight here in preparation for touring Skye tomorrow.
