Tour of Trossachs Scotland
Saturday, July 19, 2008
I am presenting today some images and videos of our one day personalized tour with a group of four visitors from New York City. We went to the heritage village of Luss on the shores of Loch Lomond, which is supposed to be the largest expanse of freshwater in the UK, and The Trossachs. The Trossachs are often regarded as "the Highlands in miniature". You can find there wild glens and sparkling lochs, like the Loch Katrine.
Then, we went to Port of Menteith, to see the Lake of Menteith, which is supposed to be the only lake in Scotland. We took a ferry to an island in the middle of the lake where the ruins of Inchmahome Priory stand. It is a ruined Augustine (The Black Cannons) priory founded in 1238 by Walter Comyn, who was the Earl of Menteith. Then a light lunch at Lake of Menteith Hotel.,
There is also a selection of pictures of the Stirling Castle and Doune Castle.
