Default My Scotland Pics from June '09

So I don't totally hijack Jessie's thread. These are old and I don't remember a lot of the names anymore.

"Rest and Be Thankful". There is a wicked road that leads to here, white-knuckle in some spots.

The main road headed to the Highlands:

Castle!

We were headed to Crainlarich that day and Ft. Williams another. There's a cozy little inn there on a small loch, had a pint and took a quick walk around the docks, but it was pretty cold being that far north and it was spitting rain for a good part of the day.

Back in Helensburgh where we were staying. This is the Hill House; couldn't take any pictures inside:

Gorgeous gardens!

Looking out towards the bay:

Can't remember the name of this inn but we stopped and had a pint and watched some border collies running about on the grounds:

Old church:
