Glen Quaich, Scotland.

Today we embarked on a Scotland tour as follows:

First, departed Dunfermline in eastern Scotland then to Dunkeld in central Scotland. Here we stopped for refreshments, visited the ancient Cathedral and then walked back along the bank of the Rivet Tay.

Next, N.E. through Killin and Tyndrum, across Rannoch Moor to Glencoe and the National Trust Visitor Centre.

Next, through the village of Glencoe to Clachaig Inn where we saw the “No Campbells” sign at the Inn. This relates to an infamous massacre in 1692 when the local MacDonald community was wiped out by a British military force comprised of Campbells.
