The Scottish Highlands

After the Loch Ness cruise, we stopped at the Commando Monument which is a war memorial and one of Scotland’s most recognizable monuments. Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain, can be seen from this area. It was a little too cloudy to be able to see the top of Ben Nevis when we were there though. I attempted to take some pictures, but they don’t do justice to the beauty of the dramatic landscape! This is fairly close to the town of Glencoe, where the massacre of the MacDonalds by the Campbells is said to have happened. Apparently there are some pubs in the Highlands with signs on the door that read, “Campbells not welcome,” or “MacDonalds only.”
