On day five we set off through Inverness to drive along the road beside Loch Ness. We were in search of the monster.
Didn't see it unfortunately but that's okay... I took photos and I can always photoshop the monster in later!
We set our course west towards the castle called Eliean Donan - for no other reason that we wanted to take photos of the castle. I am very glad we made the journey.
Now we were on our way to Stirling through spectacular country side. With a photo opportunity seeming to occur every 2 minutes we had to pace ourselves.
There was water everywhere!! Leaking through mountain gradually cutting ravines. The tress, the grass, the rocks everything was laden with water. It is truly a spectacular countryside with beauty abounding everywhere you look. It is a world away from the climate and scenery of Australia. I wondered if the locals took it for granted because they see it everyday. I certainly hope they don't loose the sense of wonder at the spectacular countryside for that would be heartbreaking.
The road wove and wound around the bottom of the mountain - mum had great fun with the corners while I hung on for dear life.
After a long driving day we finally made it to our destination of Stirling.
Next up... Adventures in Stirling and driving to the lake district.
