5 Days around Scotland
By Sandy Campbell

During the last week of September 2012 I played host to a friend from Canada.

This was his 3rd visit to Scotland.

The general idea was to see as much as possible but not spend too much time at each location. More to provide an overview of the areas visited.

Day 1 - he arrived from Toronto and went to his hotel. In the afternoon we drove to New Lanark and also visited the Falls of Clyde. This is an "easy" half day trip.

Day 2 - Dumfries and Galloway. Dumfries to see where Robert Burns died - we have visited Alloway before. Then to see where John Paul Jones was born. He is recognised as one of the originators of the US Navy. Then along the Solway Coast to Scotland's most southerly distillery. Home via Girvan and Ayr.

Day 3 - rain so we took a "drive". Kirkintilloch over the Campsie Fells to Fintry; Drymen to Balloch on Loch Lomond; Balloch to Helensburgh; Helensburgh to Arrochar; Rest and Be Thankful to Glengoilhead; Glengoilhead to Dunoon; Ferry to Gourock; back to Kirkintilloch via Erskine Bridge, Bearsden.

Day 4 - a LONG drive. Kirkintilloch via Callander to Tyndrum; Glencoe to Ft. William; Ft. William to Morar; Morar to Ft. Augustus; Ft Augustus via South bank of Loch Ness to Inverness; Back to Kirkintilloch via A9/M80.

Day 5 - Kirkintilloch to Linlithgow; Linlithgow to South Queensferry; S Queensferry via Leith to Port Seton; Port Seton via coast to North Berwick; back to Kirkintilloch
