Heading for the magic of Scotland’s highlands

The 97-mile West Highland Way is the most popular of Britain’s 19 national walks. It begins in Milngavie and ends in Fort William, which sits in the shadow of the United Kingdom’s tallest mountain, Ben Nevis.

The forecast called for showers for Day One, but a bright, mostly dry day awaited. Sue met a piper and his Scottish terrier along the way to Drymen.

Conic Hill presented the first climb of the trek and our first views of the highlands ahead.

Lunch atop Conic Hill provides a view of Loch Lomond and a glimpse of the highlands. We are staying in a comfy bunkhouse in Balmaha tonight and head for the highlands tomorrow, traveling north along the loch, or to the right in this photo. Except for a brief shower, the weather was great.

    I am loving all these pictures! I think this trip will have to go on our to-do list too.
    Happy Mother’s Day Sue 🙂
