Tour Group at Rannoch Moor, Scotland

This morning, I collected tour group from Glasgow International Airport and proceeded as follows:

To the charming, heritage village of Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond, a site which provided some useful photo opportunities.

Next, we continued north through Crianlarich and Tyndrum to Rannoch Moor where we stopped at a view-point for photos.

Next, on to the famous scenic site of Glencoe where we encountered a piper in full flow at a popular viewpoint.

Next, we continued north, tracking Loch Linnhe to Fort William from where we drove down Glen Nevis, stopping for photos of Highland Cattle in the Glen. Our next stop was Lower Falls at end of Glen Nevis.

¬†Next, we returned to Fort William and then west to Glenfinnan¬†where our timely¬†arrival allowed us to view the ‘Harry Potter’ steam train as it trundled over the Glenfinnan Viaduct or ‘Harry Potter Bridge’.

Next, we returned to fort William and then drove north, up the Great Glen, passing Loch Lochy to our next destination of Loch Ness. Unfortunately, we arrived just too late to visit Castle Urquhart but will return tomorrow morning. This evening, we checked into our lodgings in Inverness, capital of the Highlands.
