Sep 30, 2014 - Callander

We left Inveraray and followed along the banks of Loch Lomond (strange how certain songs come into the head) and Loch Long, stopping at Killin. This was great, absolutely wonderful. Not only did it have a laundrette (much needed), but the most magnificent medley of cascades and, as we had seen in a Julia Bradbury UK Great Railway Walks show on T V in this area (Callander to Inveraray), we found the burial site of the Macnab Clan. Julia had interviewed the elderly Chief of Clan Macnab here where he pointed out his proposed burial plot,...

Sep 28, 2014 - Inveraray

Farewell Fort William; there are only four more sleeps to go before we start heading home. Our route today takes us along many Lochs (just can't believe how much water there is in Scotland) to Oban where we were able to walk around and get an appreciation of the town before the rain set in.

The most common is that two of Bonnie Prince Charlie's men were captured and left behind in Carlisle after the failed rising of 1745. Remember...

Jun 7, 2009 - Glasgow, Auchentoshan and Inveraray

It seemed like they had just dimmed the lights and we had just started to settle into snoozing, when they turned on the lights and began to serve us a breakfast of eggs, potato cakes and baked beans (not appetizing to our Canadian stomachs for breakfast). I could see the sun starting to come up over the horizon. As we were making our descent, I think we were going over the northern isles, and the sky was clear, and seeing the view below of the rolling green hills and the whitewashed cottages beside the sea was very pretty. When we got to...
