  • Day5

    Entered the Highlands...so so nice
    Along Loch Lomond (walked around Luss), through Glencoe and on to Fort William (all spectacular views)... We caught chair lift up Nevis range
    Love this area
    And saw a highland cow today (yey!)

  • Day120

    We had a big drive today taking in some beautiful scenery and sights. We saw the old steam train used in the Harry Potter movies; Neptune's staircase, a staircase loch comprising 8 lochs on the Caledonian Canal; the Glenfinnan viaduct and monument; Eilean Donan Castle and some hairy Highland cattle.

  • Day109

    Big driving day- first stop was Neptunes Staircase- a series of 8 loch to take boats from Fort William to the Caledonian Canal (a very long process), then out to the Glenfinnan Viaduct -used in Harry Potter as well as the steam train that travels along that line (known as the Jacobite Train). There is also a monument there & info on Bonnie Prince Charles. Headed through some beautiful country to the Isle of Skye (I may have sadly led us a little astray on part of today's journey😱😢)Read more

  • Day121

    We caught the ferry from Uig, Isle of Skye to Tarbert on the Isle of Harris this morning. Lovely calm crossing and great scenery. From there we took the scenic route to our accommodation for the next three nights at Garrabost on the Isle of Lewis. See my next post for Isle of Harris and Isle of Skye favourites.

  • Day119

    I got my first glimpse of the Scottish Highlands as we drove towards Fort William. Somehow the drizzle made for a better first impression with the mist drifting in and out of view. Beautiful! We took a gondola ride up the Nevis Range mountain resort where we were optimistically thinking we would see Ben Nevis, UK's highest peak, but it was never going to happen. Even if we had hiked the 2hour round trip there was no view to be seen on this wet cloudy day! However, we still got amazing views. Amazing views but so so cold! The wind just whipped right through our clothing and chilled us to the bone - time to get the thermals out!Read more

  • Day27

    This afternoon we did a tour to Lock Ness to find the Monster in the deep.....visited the information centre and listened to the findings that has gone on over the last few years. There has been over 1000 people claim that they have seen "something ".... We then went on a cruise of the lock , before a two course meal was served. The Highlands are very pretty, with very large mountains and lots of locks. Lock Ness has the largest volume of water and is 23 miles long.Read more

  • Day114

    Beautiful Inverness at the top of the Highlands. On the journey up Loch Ness we detoured into Glen Afflic to visit the Plodda Falls. Next day on to the battle field on Culloden Moor, over to the east coast to Aberdeen & down to Perth.

  • Day125

    We continued along Loch Ness and to our next stop for the next night - Inverness. Inverness is on Scotland’s northeast coast, where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth. It's the largest city and the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands. Our accommodation looked across to Inverness Castle, built on a cliff overlooking the river.

  • Day126

    On our way to Perth, we visited the Culloden moor, east of Inverness, where the Battle of Culloden was fought, the final conflict during the Jacobite Rising of 1745, in which the government forces defeated the Jacobite army and suppressed once and for all Charles Stuart's ambition of reclaiming the thrones of England and Scotland for his father, James Stuart.
    Perth is home for two nights. It is a city in central Scotland, located on the banks of the River Tay. Nice accommodation and good pub where we ate both nights, about a 15-minute walk to get there...and great music.Read more
