The life and travels of the Kemp Family

Fort William 

We are now the end of a three day stay in Fort William , we were greeted by Joan our host at our B&B and a lovely character she was.


She could not do enough for you , either sorting out dining options or advising us on the best places to go hiking . Joan also served the best porridge with a dash of cream and whiskey . We had a seafood meal down on the pier our first night .


And this fantastic painting above greeted us as we entered for dinner .


We’ve been busy hiking , up Cow Slip Hill ( yes that’s what it’s called ) where we saw deer and then down into Glen Nevis . I think we walked a good 10 kms


Above:  a couple of Wet Walkers ( not white walkers ) coming down into the Glen , and Bruce admiring the view of Ben Nevis the highest mountain in Britain.

Next day we were out in the car exploring the highlands to the west . First stop was Glenfinnan to see the monument to the Jacobite Clans , who lost war against the English in the late 1700’s


Above : The monument with statue of a clansman on top , you can climb this tower internally a share the view with him .

Then  across  the road to view the Glennfinnan Viaduct which was used in the Harry Potter Movies , it was constructed in concrete back in 1897 and is still used today to bring train passengers to the Western Isles .

 


We are now off t o the Isle Of Skye for 5 days .
