James of the Glen walk

Walk up to James of the Glens Bothey. He was the guy who featured in the story "Kidnapped"
by R.L Stevenson. A real person who was hanged for the supposed murder of The "Red Fox" Colin Campbell. Sarah has earmarked this as an overnight stop on our Clansmans walk. She may be on her own !!!

Oban is a very nice town with a lovely harbour. Above the town is Mc Caig's tower which is more of a Folly than a tower. Wonderful views.

Off to Oban

Lovely scenery on way to Oban site.
Weather was quite good and we found the site very nice. We had visited it before on a rainy night, this time it looked a lot better.

Falkirk wheel.

June 2010
Off now to Scotland. Killin site near Falls of Dochart. Met up with our pals Rog and Julia and went to see the Falkirk wheel. An impressive boat lift on the canal. Took the place of about fourteen locks which used to take all day to navigate. This takes fifteen minutes from bottom to top.
Julia is looking serious as she does not like hights. Well done that girl
