Stirling and Glencoe tour

Saturday, December 15, 2007

Today, I led a tour to Glencoe and Stirling Castle. Images below. Yesterday's blog was incorrectly posted to (my error!).

Here is an image of the memorial to the victims of the infamous Glencoe Massacre 1692.

Glencoe museum. Note thatched roof. This is something like the original dwellings at time of the massacre.

Waterfall near Glencoe. This can be a gushing torrent after heavy rain, but quite subdue today.

Tapestry in the chapel at Stirling Castle.

Overall, a good tour. Weather quite clement for time of year. Some snow on the tops of the hills.
