Crinan, County Argyll

Crinan is a beautiful little village on Scotland's West Coast. It is perhaps best known for its canal, which stretches for nine miles and features several locks. The sea breezes are bracing, the views spectacular, and we enjoyed a delicious lunch at a very historic hotel. Who could ask for more?

A Wee Scottish Journey

 My trip to Scotland was amazing - we arrived in Spring, as the last gusts of Winter still blew, but the promise of Summer was in the air. Our journey began and ended in Glasgow, with many fascinating stops along the way. I could live in this place, and hope to return one day. To describe it all would take way too long, and the sights and sounds often left me speechless, so I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

One of our first destinations was Inveraray, County Argyll, ancestral home of Clan Campbell. These days it's probably best known for its perfectly preserved Castle.
