Callander Pipe Band, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing the popular town of Callander which sits on the banks of the River Teith and on the edge of the Scottish Highlands, about sixteen miles N.W.of Stirling. Population is about 3000. This area is also known as the Trossachs which benefits from some stunning scenery comprising lochs (such as Venachar and Katrine) and mountains. This area has long associations with the legendary ‘outlaw’  Rob Roy Macgregor.

Hardknott Pass, Lake District, England

This evening, I am posting information on a fascinating and scenic drive in a remote part of the English Lake District.

This is a journey along a narrow, single track road going west to east from Ravenglass and Muncaster Castle through Eskdale, passing Beckfoot and Boot, up through the Hardknott Pass with potential stop at Hardknott Roman Fort. Then on, up into the Lake District National Park and down from Cockley Beck via Wrynose Pass into Little Langdale and on to Ambleside or other destinations.
