We left Su at Arisaig and took the spectacular road back to Fort William. The lochs and mountains were glistening in the early morning light after a rainy morning. This was a highlight of our trip. This scenic road is full of highlights. In Fort William we joined Sunday trampers at the Ben Nevis visitor centre. Ben Nevis towered above ...
... Yum! Entering the moor we were treated to another radical change in scenery. The area here is filled with small hills and is very marshy. There are no communities in that area and it is an empty landscape. Apparently the army uses it to practice camouflage and you could be looking at men out there any never know it. We then traveled onto Stirling and had the option to hike up to the stop of the William Wallace memorial. We made the short climb ...
... away from the English, eventually coming back and winning the battle. We ran across the bridge yelling "FREEEDOOMMM" We then went to port laukie for lunch, delicious! Saw the queens baton go by on it's way to the commonwealth games. A tour of the tomatin Whiskey distillery followed lunch and we learnt all about how whiskey was made and the different types, followed by a taster of course! The oldest whiskey there was from ...
... Thoughts of spending two solid hours cooped up with a bored, screaming toddler ran through my mind, but it was ok the little girl was mostly preoccupied with being fed by her mother.

The first and only stop came at Glenfinnan, a relatively pretty ...
We headed out of Edinburgh to start the next leg of our trip, 8 days exploring the countryside of Scotland. We picked up our hire car early morning on the outskirts of Edinburgh and headed off. After my dismay at our last hire car, I booked something more suitable for this leg, you can see in the photo. Amazingly it was also really good value at under $70 AUD a day.
Our first stop was the famous Falkirk Wheel. This falls into the engineering nerd ...

Quite a nice room, courteous staff, good breakfast - a bit too much fat for my taste. Tried haggis for the first time. I got to the breakfast buffet close to the end of service and the eggs were a bit rubbery, my fault for waiting so long. The fruit was watermelon, grapefruit, and plums. Hot buffet included all manner of sausages, ham, bacon, and other meats; including haggis. They had potato 'scones', very like the potato wedges you get at McDonald's. Check out time was 11, gave me time for a little nap.
