We had read that this was supposedly a stunning drive, and we certainly were not disappointed with what we saw. Magnificent mountains, stunning drive, beautiful lochs and great scenery. The scenery through the glen was very changeable, with some views of heavily treed areas right...More

Don't get me wrong the scenery is stunning. And the village is quaint and cosy. The small island in the middle of the loch apparently boasts holding habitats for endangered species. But... as all things on this planet it only takes a selfish bumbling moron...More
