Lochailort Inn

I'm now in a roadside Tavern called the Lochailort Inn, near Fort William.

It took me seven hours to get here, but that is with frequent stops to photograph the amazing scenery and a rather a long ferry ride.

I have no idea what tomorrow holds - but I can't wait for it to happen.

Some shots of the trip down; you'll have to bear with me as I haven't the foggiest idea where they are.

There was a vista that took up more that 250 degrees of the 360 degrees of the spectrum.
There was no way I knew of to take the entire scene at one go, so ...........

Moving left.......

Scene # 2

Left again.........

Scene #3

And finally, left again.

Scene # 4

The vista was incredibly and hauntingly, beautiful......I'm just sorry I can't replicate that beauty here.

Oh wow PB - these look amazing!
In my opinion, the clouds enhance the scenery
Enjoy your trip and keep those pictures coming

Re: Lochailort Inn

Gosh the landscape there is wonderful PooBear, and you've captured the atmosphere beautifully, amazing photos!

I've never been to Scotland, somewhere I really want to go, but Mr B has always preferred to go abroad, so it's never happened. Maybe now, with all the travel restrictions (and the fact our passports have expired, lol) we should take the opportunity to get up there.
