SCOTLAND - PAGE 7 - (5-19/06/04)
The last page of photos from our trip to Scotland in June.
|Highland Cows in Glen Lonan to the east of Oban.|
|Dunstaffnage Castle can be found 5 miles to the north of Oban, it was built on rock in the 13th century. Centre photo shows the remains of the nearby chapel where the last Stewart Lord of Lorne is said to have died on the threshold while reciting his marriage vows.|
|There are some good views from the land surrounding the castle, the photo on the left above looks towards Connel and the bridge over the Falls of Lora.|
|Photos above are all from the National Trust for Scotland's Arduaine Garden. The gardens are located to the south of Oban and are signposted from the main A816 road that runs towards Lochgilphead. Arduaine was first developed in 1898 by James Arthur Campbell after he purchased three farms on the peninsula where the gardens are located.|
|Loch Lomond on our return journey home is shown above. The waterway is the largest freshwater loch in the UK at 24 miles long and 5 miles wide, it is located 20 miles to the northwest of Glasgow.|
