Sep 18 The Trossachs & Loch Lomond

After Falkirk we headed across the Trossachs National Park to Loch Lomond.  We found a nice sheltered car park behind the Tourist Information and stayed the night.  There were some friendly folk there, also in motorhomes, so we had a very pleasant evening.  We also took a walk along the shore and enjoyed the view.  Next day we moved on to a small touring site at the North end at a place called Ardlui.  We stopped on the way at a small touristy place called Inveruglas.  It is a preserved lochside village with a pier.  It made a pleasant stopover for an hour or so.  Once at Ardlui we parked for the night overlooking the loch.  We had some more interesting neighbours, and a great view of the loch activities.  Plenty of folk on paddle boards and small dinghies.  There were also some waterskiers, all of which made an entertaining sight.

Here is a selection of views from the area.

The next day we proceeded along the A82 and A85 to Oban.  We had decided not to visit Mull on this trip but, to spend some time on Skye.  We had a look around Oban and enjoyed lunch overlooking the harbour.

We then started the slow drift north with an overnight stop at Connel overlooking Ardmucknish Bay.
