Highland Cow at Fort William, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings in Fort William and embarked on a trip as follows:

First to nearby Ben Nevis Distillery to photograph Highland Cows in adjacent field.

Next, south, tracking Loch Linnhe to Glencoe. Here, one part of the group walked trough the village to visit the memorial to the famous (infamous) massacre of the local MacDonald community by a contingent of British military which consisted of members of Clan Campbell, an event which occurred in 1692. The remainder of the group was transferred to the nearby National Trust Visitor Centre.

After the entire group was reunited we continued south, along the coast to Oban stopping en-route for images of Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe. At Oban we stopped for lunch. Oban is a popular visitor destination and ferry port famous for its seafood.

Next, we drove east, stopping briefly at Inveraray and then to Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond where we availed of a thirty minute walking tour.

Over course of the day the weather progressively improved from light rain to brilliant sunshine.
