Glencoe, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings on Isle of Arran, S.W. Scotland and caught the mid-morning ferry to Ardrossan on the mainland. From this point we drove north to Glasgow and then to our first stop of the pretty, heritage village of Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond.

At Luss we walked through the village, admiring the quaint houses to the short pier which afforded good views of the Loch and Ben Lomond (mountain).

Next we went along the shore to the church and historic burial ground wherein is a ‘hogback’ grave-marker from the Viking period, about 1100 years ago thus proving the antiquity of the site which goes back to early Christian times around the 6th century AD.

After a light lunch at Luss we continued north through Tyndrum and then across Rannoch Moor to our next stop at Glencoe which benefits from stunning, mountainous scenery. We called in at the Glencoe Visitor Centre for refreshments and views.
