Glasgow to Ballachulish, Scotland

We drove through some beautiful countryside on a cloudy and drizzly day. Our first stop was Loch Lomand for a boat ride. Yes, it was chilly and windy but we stood at the front of the boat and enjoyed being on the water.

Jerry, at the bar, getting some hot chocolate with whiskey.

Continuing our bus ride, passing beautiful countryside and castles.

 We reached the village of Inveraray in time for lunch. We wandered a bit, had soup, tea and scones at a little tea shop, and then a tour of Inveraray Castle.

We entered the castle through a greenhouse walkway filled with beautiful flowers.

This was the armory room. On the left, the semicircle is made with muskets. On the right, is a combination of muskets and what looks like long handled hatchets.

Beautiful gardens

Very chilly out but still lots of flowers in bloom.

Finishing our day with driving through more beautiful countryside. Loved the Highlands, rain, clouds and all!
