Day 1 - Dumbarton to Oban
|Balloch Castle, southern end of Loch Lomond|
|A quiet lunchtime at Luss|
|Looking north near Inveruglas|
InverarayWorking our way west the skies clouded over again but despite the less than ideal photographic conditions we briefly stopped for pictures at Inveraray on Loch Fyne
Near Kilmartin, Mid ArgyllOn the west coast of Mid Argyll there are many sites of ancients cairns and standing stones. A stop at Temple Wood was also a great opportunity to get some pictures of sheep and newly born lambs!
Day 2 - Oban to Fort William via Isle of MullWe took 3 separate ferries to complete our journey on this day , but there was no doubt that the first, Oban to Craignure was the most spectacular.....
|Isle of Mull|
|Lighthouse at Eilean Musdile, and a view up Loch Linnhe on the left|
On Mull itself we went searching for Sea Eagles (White-tailed Eagle) and were really lucky to have a clear but distant sighting. Otherwise the day was mostly wet which meant a dearth of good photographic opportunities.
However, the rain showers paused for long enough whilst we lunched and explored Tobermory to get some classic pictures.
|Tobermory - the colouful "capital" of Mull|
Day 3 - Fort William to Nostie (Kyle of Lochalsh)This was a day of Lochs and Glens. We travelled north from Fort William, past Neptune's Staircase and up The Great Glen, turned west at Invergarry, over Beinneun Forest and carried on west along Glen Shiel, until we hit the sea lochs again.....
|Laggan, Loch Lochy|
|Upper Loch Duich and the Five Sisters|
