Trip Report Micro trip report - a few days in Scotland

Jump to last reply

I'm back in Scotland for a few days, mainly to visit some old friends and share photos of grandkids, stories of kids and family, complain about advancing age, and reminisce. Beer will be involved. Unfortunately my wife is unable to endure longhaul flights for the time being, so this is a stag trip, subject to frequent Skyping.

But first I'm taking a couple of "alone" days to drive around the Western and Northwest Highlands, visiting some places I haven't seen for many years. I'll provide more details later, but will link a couple of photos from today. I left Edinburgh this morning, and traveled through Strathearn to Fort William via Glen Coe, then out "the Road to the Isles" to Mallaig, then back and up the Great Glen to Inverness, where I'm staying tonight. Tomorrow I'll head up to the northwest coast via Strath Carron and Loch Shin, out to Lochinver, then back to Inverness via a bunch of single-track roads, dodging sheep. Lovely.

A couple of snaps from today:
