The above photo is of Eilean Donan castle which is close to Kyle of Lochalsh. We stayed at Fort William and toured the Western Highlands which includes Glencoe. We also went to Kyle of Lochalsh where the road bridge connects to the Isle Of Skye. I got lots of photos of Skye, it's such a pretty island. We also had a trip up the Great Glen, past Loch Ness to Inverness. We didn't see Nessie, we stopped at St Augustus which is on the shores of Loch Ness.
Scotland is a beautiful country, everywhere was so scenic and colourful with heather growing wild everywhere. The weather was better than forecast. We only had rain at night when we were tucked up in bed, which is as it should be! Lol! During the day we had a couple of showers which only lasted a few minutes and produced quite a few rainbows. I've not added too many photos tonight as it's getting late so I'm going to leave you to look at the photos and I'll be back soon to add more. Those of you on Facebook may have seen these as I put them on there when I came home.
This is the blacksmiths forge at Gretna Green where young couples used to elope to to get married.
This was one of my favourite places, Rannoch Moor. It's the largest peat bogland in Europe and is just so wild and rugged.
Rannoch moor again. The sun's rays really lit it up.
The Great Shepherd of Glencoe, it looks over Glencoe village.
The Three Sisters of Glencoe. It always looks so brooding and atmospheric. The Massacre of Glencoe took place here, the Campbells killing members of the McDonald clan.
One of the many lochs we passed on our way to Glencoe.
I loved this bridge, I could only get a shot of it as we passed on the coach.
There are just so many lochs in Scotland, all of them beautiful, even in the mist!
The Isle of Skye again, such a peaceful place.
Inverness castle, it's in a lovely position on top of a hill looking over the river Ness which runs through the city.
Another pretty river on the Isle of Skye.
This little guy is a Barn Swallow, he came and posed for me on the balcony of our hotel room, even waiting for me to change the lens on my camera!
Isle of Skye again!
I can't remember the name of this loch, it may be Loch Oich or Loch Lochy, I just love the tranquility here!
This is Portree, the capital of the Isle of Skye. We stopped here for dinner.
I hope you liked the photos, there's lots more where those come from! Lol! I'll post them in the next few days. What always put me off before was loading them all onto Photobucket first but Blogger seem to have made adding them straight from the computer much faster now.
I forgot to add a signature, that's what happens when you're away so long!
