Luss village viewed from pier.

This evening, I am reporting on the quaint and historic lochside village of Luss which is located just off the main highway between Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands, about 33 miles north of Glasgow. Here can be found small houses with colourful gardens, a historic church, loch-side beach, pier offering panoramic views of Loch Lomond  and Ben Lomond (mountain) plus shops and refreshment facilities.

Gilnockie Tower, Scottish Borders.

This afternoon, I am focusing on Gilnockie Tower in the Scottish Borders region. This is the only survivor from around 60-80 stone or wooden towers of similar design in the region of Eskdale, Ewesdale and Liddesdale. The Tower dates from the 16th century and is situated on the west bank of the River Esk. The Tower is privately owned but is cared for by Armstrong Clan Association due to the historic connections with that Clan.

Inveraray, Argyll, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on the town of Inveraray (population 650) in S.W. Scotland, about sixty-five miles N.W.of Glasgow.

Although an interesting destination in its own right, Inveraray provides a good stopping point in trips to/from Oban, Campeltown and Kennacraig ferry terminal (Islay).
