The south of Skye  and the Kyle of Lochalsh hove into sight as you descend the A87 from Invergarry and what could more iconic than Eilean Donan Castle coming into view on the shores of Loch Alsh.

The Skye Bridge has negated the need for a ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’ but the song still rings in your ears as you take the journey over from Kyle of Lochalsh to Kyleakin and on to Broadford, one of the main towns on Skye.

The south of Skye is home to the famous Cuillin hills and across the Cuillin Sound, the Small Isles are clearly visible with Rum the largest of them.

Western Isles

The Western Isles or Outer Hebrides should be on everyone’s ‘100 places to visit in a lifetime’, with some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland, beautiful deserted beaches, blue seas, a wealth of  history, amazing wildlife and a cultural heritage second to none.

Thanks to investment in road and ferry links it is possible to now travel from one end of the Western Isles to the other without having to go back to the mainland first.

From the tiny island of Vatersay, slow to the Western Isles pace of life as you journey over the causeway through Barra to catch the ferry to South Uist, amble through the Uists and Benbecula and sail to Bernary and there to Lewis and Harris.

On the way, take a boat trip to see the wildlife – dolphins, porpoises, seals, whales,  rare birds –   pick up some hand crafted luxurious gifts, explore the castles and ruins, photograph the stunning wildflowers of the machair, soak in the atmosphere, take in a ceilidh and sample some true hospitality.

Loch lomond south

Loch Lomond South has so much to offer and so much of differing character. The south end includes the bustling town of Balloch, with boats galore lining the rivers leading into Loch Lomond to the stately Balloch Castle Country Park, where walks through the park lead along the shores of the loch itself.

The east side is a popular day out, travelling through the smaller villages like Gartocharn, across the Endrick Waters towards Drymen and Balmaha, another yacht haven for those making the most of the vast expanse of Loch Lomond on the doorstep. The area is steeped in history and if you can, take in a trip out to one of the islands, where it is difficult to believe the city of Glasgow is just a few miles away.

The West Highland Way meanders north from here, towards Rowardennan and the Ben Lomond National Park, officially opened in 1997, where a granite sculpture by Doug Cocker commemorates those who gave their lives during World War Two and the permanent freedom for the nation that Ben Lomond represents.

On the west shores of Loch Lomond, golf is a huge attraction, along with the popular village of Luss and a variety of holiday parks offer the chance to stay a while and soak up the atmosphere, take in all the attractions, explore all the glens and many hostelries along the way.

Geologists will tell you that the Great Glen divides the North of Scotland along a line from Fort William to Inverness and that the fault is a very old feature and has been active since Mid Devonian times (c.400 million years ago).
The thousands of tourists who flock here each year will tell you it’s fantastic: the scenery, the wildlife, the outdoor activities, the sailing through the Caledonian Canal.

The Great Glen footpath is 73 miles between Fort William and Inverness and it’s a walk through Scottish history, a magnificent slice of Scottish landscape and some very interesting geology.

Loch Ness is the largest of three lochs located in the Great Glen. The present day Loch Ness is about 10,000-years-old and dates from the end of the last Ice Age, which lasted more than 20,000 years. Old enough to be home to creatures that should have died out a long time ago, you might think. Keep your eyes peeled and the camera at the ready.
