Following the postponement of the Scottish Cup fixture between Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Raith Rovers I was doom and gloom. However within a few minutes it was decided that we go on a highland adventure anyway.
I’ve never been further north than House of Bruar up the A9. First stop – an old favourite – Pitlochry.
Afterwards it was time for a wee dram at Dalwhinnie. Dalwhinnie Distilley is 1,073 feet above sea level.
It’s still a lengthy drive to Inverness passing through the ski slopes of Aviemore.
After a night in the highland capital it was time to head home. Only we didn’t take the A9 – which would have taken around 3 hours – instead we started down the shores of Loch Ness. No sign of Nessie sadly but the road and the scenery was spectacular.
The next stop – Fort William beneath the slopes of Ben Nevis. The summit not visible due to the “low” cloud.
Onwards through the Pap of Glencoe. I didn’t believe a road through the mountains like that existed in Scotland. Incredible! A must for anyone going out to Oban or Fort William.
When all the mountains had passed we arrived in Killen which delighted us all. Standing beside the Falls of Dochart watching the sun setting was quite a sight.
And then we were on the road to home passing past more spectacular rugged highland scenery.
This is only a picture account of my Scottish Highland Road Trip. I hope I have persuaded you to go and witness it for yourself.
