This evening, I am posting information on today’s tour which commenced Luss, Loch Lomond and finished at lodgings in Pitlochry, Highland Perthshire.

We commenced the day with a short walking tour Luss taking in the heritage village with elaborate, well-kept gardens, the historic church with Viking era grave-marker and views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond from the short pier.

Next, we drove north, initially tracking the Loch and then on into increasingly mountainous area through Crianlarich, Tyndrum, Rannoch Moor to the rugged landscape of Glencoe. Here we stopped for photos of the scenery and a Piper. At this stage we experienced low cloud and mist.
