Scotland Day 11 Part 2 Western Highlands, Glencoe to Glasgow
After leaving Eilean Donan Castle we traveled south over the Shiel Bridge. We passed the Five Sisters mountains, Loch Cluanie, Loch Loyne, Glen Garry, Loch Garry, Invergarry, the Caledonian Canal (below), and Loch Locky. Wonderful scenery everywhere I looked!


We stopped at the Commando Memorial. Commandos were trained here in Scotland during the 2nd World War. These three Commandos stand proudly looking out toward majestic Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in Scotland. Snow lies on top of it.



We stopped at Spean Bridge for lunch and to shop, then started traveling south west again along Loch Linnhe. We stopped in breathtaking Glencoe (below), the infamous site where the Campbells masacared the MacDonalds in the late 1600s. Click here to learn more:

The sun was out on this day and the grass glowed vibrant green. It was so beautiful it hurt my eyes. I didn't want to leave this incredible place.
We passed Loch Tulla and Loch Lomond (below), famous for the song,
Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond



(This rock has a tree growing out of it.)

Soon we arrived in the Lowlands again. The roads grew wider. Houses and people and cars were more plentiful. We arrived at our hotel outside Glasgow around 5 that evening. Our wonderful tour of Scotland was over. But I have lots of memories and photos of this lovely, inspiring country. And I visit Scotland often in my stories.

    Oh, you are an evil influence! I just spend half an hour watching your slideshow.

    Hey, where is the picture with the building right in front of the mountains? I LOVE it and want to make sure it's on my list of spots to see next time I go back to Scotland.
