|Well today it looked nice and sunny so
figured I would head for Glencoe and hope for the best. After a good
breakfast I headed out from the hotel at 10.30am and headed over the hill
towards the A9 and then a further 18 miles up the road turned off heading
for Spean Bridge, onwards to Fort William and then down through Glencoe
then along to Killin and then onward back to Kinloch Rannoch and arrived
back at 5.30pm. So here are the pictures I managed to get...
The first picture shows where I am heading and
it sure looks barren but as you get into the hills you find lovely wee
glens and even a beach as the above pictures show.
The picture on the left shows another view
while I headed for Spean Bridge and when I arrived there noted a sign for
the Commando Monument so thought I'd pop up and see it. The picture on the
right shows one of the views while standing at the monument.
This is the Commando Monument and another
scene from the monument
On my way to Glencoe I noticed the Mull ferry
coming into land so just popped down to take a quick photograph and then
headed on into Glencoe and you can see me driving on the road into the
So as you can see the weather was not good but
you did get a sense of atmosphere while there.
This was the restaurant at the visitor centre.
The above pictures are of Glencoe Village
This was me driving out of Glencoe
All of the above pictures are leaving Glencoe
heading over Rannoch Moor and I just wanted to try to give you a flavour
of the scenery as you drive through.
This is picture of the entrance to Glen Etive
This last set of pictures was me entering and
leaving the village of Fortingill where they have the oldest Yew Tree in
the world. Tiny village up a one track road but well worth the visit.
