Scottish road trip 2007, day two – Battles and burial grounds

Filed under: Scotland,travel — The Scribbler @ 19:05

After a hearty full Scottish breakfast (thanks Janice), we were well fuelled for a day exploring the Trossachs. Our first stop was the Falls of Falloch a rather spectacular waterfall that runs into Loch Lomond and a chance to enjoy a short walk through the woods.

Arty long exposure shots of the falls completed, we jumped back in the car and made our way to Killin, a pretty little village near Loch Tay, with its own water feature – the Falls of Dochart.

Killin is associated with the legendary Celtic Hero Fingal who, it is thought was buried here – ‘Cill Fhinn’ meaning the burial place of Fingal. It was certainly the site of many clan battles between the MacNabs and the Campbells.

We enjoyed a Sunday morning stroll around its sights and a browse around its well-stocked outdoor shop before heading onto Callandar.
