SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS & LOWLANDS

Our Scottish sojourn included overnights in Perth, Inverness and Fort William. We toured both sides of Loch Ness as well as the Great Glen, The Road To The Isles and the Trossachs. We had a most enjoyable journey from Fort William to Mallaig on the Jacobite steam train AKA "Hogwarts Express" (see the Hogwarts page) because of its appearances in the Harry Potter movies.
THE LOCH NESS MONSTER

Have a look at the last two pictures of Loch Ness. This effect is caused by the wake of a boat that passed by some 3-4 minutes earlier. This delayed wake is due to the diverse currents running in the loch and is often mistaken for some kind of animal activity.
