Driving tour of Scotland

Drive: add Small Isles ferry
*The road descends into [[Glencoe]]. Admire the waterfalls at the Meeting of Three Waters. Admire the stone bridges on General Wade's military road. And more than all of these, admire the skyline above - a line of mountains to the left, and to the right the snaky spine of the Aonach Eagach ridge. Finally, at the bottom of the glen, stop and look out across the loch at mist-covered islets.
*From [[Fort William]] you can climb '''Ben Nevis''', though it's a dull slog and not the prettiest of walks.
*Take the Road to the Isles, the A830, to the '''Glenfinnan Monument''' - an atmospheric spot at sunset. Optionally carry on to Arisaig (interesting museum), view the '''White Sands of Morar''', or visit the port at [[Mallaig]], with options to continue on ferries to the islands, including the [[Small Isles]].
*Backtrack to the A82 and take the A87 to Kyle of Lochalsh. Cross the bridge to the [[Isle of Skye]] for a tour of the island.
*Head north to '''Torridon''' and walk some of the fine mountain paths here.
