Apr 26, 2007 - Climbed Ben Nevis - highest Mountain in UK

What a day for a climb of the highest mountain in this part of the world. Again a day of brilliant sunshine and clear skies. We could see for miles. It was cold at the top in the snow and we put our jackets on while we ate our lunch but the rest of the time was brilliant. My Kiwi summer is lasting. It was a hard slog up a well made track with the last part in snow and at the bottom was the Ben Nevis pub where Mel had a beer, I had a cider and Sandra a nice cup of tea. Walking is an arduous please!!! Climbing that Mountain has now been...

Karen's Travels 2007

Sep 7, 2006 - Train to Fort William

Took the train from Malliag to Fort William at 8:00 AM. The scenery along the line was very nice. We passed over the Glenfinnan Viaduct used in the Harry Potter movies that show the Hogwarts Express heading to the school. In Fort William we took a bus out to Glencoe. We visited the site of the masacre of the MacDonald clan (obviously they didn't get all of them). We also visited the folk museum in Glencoe and took a nice walk around the village and in the park. We had dinner back in Fort William at the Ben Nevis Restaurant with a nice view...

Oct 9, 2005 - Off to Scotland!!!

On our way to Scotland finally..... On the way we took a side trip to see Hadrian's Wall. Hmm, was that interesting...... Had to find our way to it via a rather poorly signposted way. Anyway finally got there and saw some of it, pics attached... Then it was a long drive to Fort William in Scotland. The rain began to bucket down and most of the trip was in quite heavy rain. We headed off into the Higlands and went over some mountain passes. MAgnificent country with waterfalls everywhere. We could do with that in Oz for sure! Finally arrived...

Aug 10, 2005 - Fort William, Scotland

Aug 7 - 9 Fort William in the heart of the Highlands and in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britian's highest mountain, this was our next stop. On the way from the ferry we stopped at Glenfinnan. This is where Prince Charlie raised his standard to fight the English but the real reason we stopped was Harry Potter movies have been filmed here. This is famous for the viaduct the Hogwarts Train travels over in the movie. Our first night in Fort William we did a nice hike up to a cable supension bridge. Again we left dinner to late and could not even...

Aug 9, 2005 - The most forms of transport in one day

So to summarize today: I took a bus, a ferry, a train, another bus, I walked for a bit, and then I rented a mountain bike....that's gotta be some sort of a record! I left Uig by bus at 7am this morning and got over to Armadale in the south where I caught a ferry back onto the mainland of Scotland. From here I took what's supposed to be one of the most scenic train rides in the world through to a place called Fort William. I can't really say whether it is or not, because to be honest I slept through a lot of it (what can I say, I was up at...
