Colourful Window Box at Luss, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings in Fort William on banks of Loch Linnhe and ventured down nearby Glen Nevis, a scenic ride through a valley populated with sheep and Highland Cattle at end of which is a waterfall known as Lower Falls.This route covers the final segment of the West Highland Way hiking trail.

After a return trip to Lower Falls we drove south, close to the eastern side of Loch Linnhe to Glencoe village and then a stop at Clachaig Inn in the mountainous region around Glencoe.

Next, we continued south, through Tyndrum to our next stop at Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond.  Here we were able to view Loch Lomond and encountered a wedding group at Luss Church. The mid 19th century cottages were resplendent with summer flowers and gardens.

After concluding our visit to Luss we embarked on a trip to Edinburgh on the east of Scotland via Glasgow and River Clyde. Unfortunately, traffic was heavy with the journey taking over two hours. Upon arrival in Edinburgh we checked into our lodgings. Tomorrow we visit local sites including a Seabird Centre and Rosslyn Chapel.
