Scotland's Highlands and Islands

Gentlemen, start your engines! The vessel docks, you're waved out into the daylight, clattering ashore onto virgin territory... western Scotland provides many an opportunity for intrepid road journeys, whether clattering up out of a ship's hold and onto the narrow, winding roads of a Hebridean island, or weaving between the crags of Glen Coe and out across the windswept heathland. There are gentler pleasures too, perhaps watching the ducks at leisure in the placid shallows of Loch Lomond, or of inspecting the priceless porcelain and silver conserved in many a Highland castle.

This springtime road journey heads northwest from Glasglow, passing through Argyll and the Western Isles of Scotland, taking in Loch Lomond, Lochgilphead, Oban, the Isle of Mull, Fort William, Mallaig and the Road to the Isles, then returning south through Glen Coe. The final excursion takes us to the Isle of Arran, farther to the southwest.
