Scotland - 2
Following on from Scotland 1, we sail from Oban across the Firth of Lorn to the Isle of Mull.  Passing Duart Castle, we journey to Craignure and by bus to Fionnphort on Mull. Here we catch a small ferry to the tiny historical island of Iona. Such a beautiful place. On Iona we visit the Augustinian Nunnery and the Ionian Abbey and wander through the pretty village. Back on the mainland we pass Stalker Castle in Portnacroish and Loch Leven on the way to Glencoe, where snow is on the truly awesome mountains. From there it's up to Loch Linnhe and Fort William with a view of Ben Nevis. Through Braemar, with a view of Braemar Castle, we pass Balmoral, the River Dee, Loch Alsh and Eilean Donan Castle. And, I can never forget, the Bluebells of Scotland.
