We hired Donald Nicholson to drive us from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye. The trip took two days with stops of interest along the way.
We headed toward Perth crossing the Firth of Forth Bridge.
Some people missed the views.
Our first stop was Killicranchie.
Killiecrankie Pass was the site of a large battle between the Jacobites and the Orange Covenanters in 1689. In this particular battle, the Jacobites emerged victorious. One of the only escape routes was the leap across this gorge. One soldier is recorded to have made the 18 foot leap with Highlanders chasing him with claymores swinging.
From there, on to Lacchan Locks between Loch Lochy and Loch Oich
