This area, blessed with castles and tales of people larger than life, is associated with Camelot’s King Arthur. It’s also the setting for Rob Roy’s heroic nationalism and deeds. Robert the Bruce, the man known as Braveheart, left his spirt in Scotland’s city of Stirling. Wander the winding streets. It’s a sensory delight.
Next stop is Fort William. Revel in the raw, magnificent scenery and the mysterious islands of Mull and Iona. Enjoy Oban, one of Scotland’s oldest sources of single malt Scotch whisky distilleries, and just a stone’s throw from the wild sea.
Take your time. Enjoy the whisky distilleries, 100s of years old, and the tasting rooms. Meander along the back roads. This area speaks to the soul of a time when secret ceremonies, Highland bravery, and the heathered peat taste of Scotch whisky all meet.
Step back in time and feel your heart take wing.
