Our most recent family reunion in Melbourne in February 08 to attend Natasya and Neil's wedding.
Lunch at the El Stazione in Glasgow
The A82 is a winding slow drive that took me another hour to skirt the length of Loch Lomond. We passed by the venue of the Barclay's Scottish Open to be held next week, but due to the inclement rainy weather we decided to push on to our destination

Leaving the wooded stretch of A82 along Loch Lomond, we started our ascent into the Scottish Highlands.

The terrain now becomes hilly and rugged. This is exactly what I imagined the Scottish highlands to be like. However the weather was not conducive for much photoshoot - it kept raining in sheets - but hey! ...this is Scotland and I was told it rains most of the time here in summer!
We braved the rain at a few spots to capture the feel of the highlands with our cameras.
It took us another 2 hours to reach our first destination - Fort Williams. Along the way we drove past Loch Tulla and Loch Leven before we parked ourselves at Corran Inn - a typical Scottish bed and breakfast - located overlooking Loch Levern.

The Corran Inn has 5 rooms for rent and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in its own restaurant. It also has a comfortable reading room where you can read and sample the various local 'spirits'.
