We took the long way round from Oban to Aberfeldy and so glad we did! Having missed seeing Ben Nevis in mist, the drive through the Glen was spectacular! We stopped in Glencoe village and walked through the village to the MacDonald Monument.
It really is hard to capture the grandeur of the highlands, but it makes my heart sing! (And my eyes tear up) Again and again humans hurt each other, and it’s hard to understand why they can’t just share the earth peacefully.
The Glencoe visitors centre was excellent, we watched a film on the history and geography of the area. They had reconstructed a peat house, very clever. If we lived nearby, there are plenty of walks to enjoy…not all uphill!
Lionel kept stopping for me to take pictures, at one spot a couple of young girls had perched themselves on a rock in the stream and were cooking lunch.
We arrived in Kenmore, a small town at the end of Loch Tay and were amazed to see so many people frolicking on the small stony beach (some were in wetsuits).
