Small Group Tour Scotland

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

This evening, I am presenting some images from a just completed two day, small group tour of Scotland taking in some key sites.

Here is the quaint heritage village of Luss. The houses were originally built to house workers at a nearby slate quarry.

Loch Lomond with Ben Lomond in the distance.

Here are some images of the famous Glencoe landscape. We just arrived at the right time-as the sun was shining!

Here are some views of Loch Ness and Castle Urquhart. Loch Ness comprises the largest inland body of water in the U.K.

Happy travellers
Another view of Castle Urquhart. This is a magnificent ruin in its own right.

The following are some images from a tour of Edradour Distillery near Pitlochry. The tour is free and covers the whole whisky making process from malting, mashing, fermentation to distillation and maturation.

The following are images taken at Stirling Castle.

This is a handwoven tapestry located on the wall of the chapel. Tapestry weaving is still undertaken on-site.

The Chapel Royal. This was built in 1594 for the christening of Prince Henry.

Exterior of the Great Hall This is very impressive both inside (hammer beam roof) and outside (authentic gold coloured exterior).
The Palace
Outer Defences
Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum Glasgow. This is one of the finest civic attractions in Europe and attracts over 1.0m visitors per annum.

Glasgow University.This is one of Scotland's premier university's and located in the West End of Glasgow.
Overall, a good tour. Weather was reasonably clement.
