Woodland Scene at Glencoe, Scotland

This morning, we departed our Fort William lodgings and drove to Fort William Railway Station where we caught a brief glimpse of the Jacobite Express Steam Train ( aka ‘Harry Potter Train’) as it was being prepared for today’s trip to Mallaig.

Next, we drove S.E. through Glen Nevis to visit Lower Falls at foot of the glen ( valley). On the way we observed superb landscapes and a small flock of sheep.

Next, we returned to Fort William and turned south on the A82, along the banks of Loch Linnhe. Upon reaching Onich we turned east through Ballachulish to our immediate destination of Glencoe. Upon arrival we drove through the village and then along a single track road to Clachaig Inn where we stopped for photographs.

Next we continued south towards Glasgow, stopping at the popular and historic village of Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond.Here we explored the quaint village with its well-kept houses, walked out onto the short pier to benefit from the views and visited the 19th century church which by chance was open to visitors.
