Scottish Road Trip Day 4: The Stunning Scenery of Loch Lomond

Scottish Road Trip Day 4: The Stunning Scenery of Loch Lomond

Day 4 of the Road Trip was all about driving.

We had a five-and-a-half hour trek from the Isle of Skye to Glasgow and unfortunately weather wasn’t on our side as we bid farewell to our lovely bed and breakfast hosts Carol and Martin following a scrumptious home-cooked breakfast.

After nearly three hours on the road, we passed Fort William and arrived in Glen Nevis where we stopped for lunch at a nice cafe. It was then back in the car and 90 minutes later we arrived in Luss, a village on the west bank of Loch Lomond.

Now this was the beautiful Scottish scenery we were searching for!

Beautiful weather and the colors of fall definitely inspired the two of us as we jumped back into the car and completed our drive to Glasgow just before 5PM.

Our whirlwind adventure to Scotland certainly had its ups and downs but at the end of it we vowed that one day we would be back in Scotland to explore the Highlands in more detail.

Route Map of Our Road Trip

The four days of our Scottish road trip took us over 500 miles from Edinburgh to Glasgow via the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye.

    Love the pics. Especially the ducks! We’re going to be doing our fair share of driving, mainly in NZ. Some days we’ll be on the road for 6 hours! How did you pass time on the road?

      Great question G – we listened to the radio when we had reception otherwise just talked and tried to figure out plans. Definitely make sure you bring an aux input cable for your iPod so that you’re not stuck with bad music (or worse, no music) when you’re road tripping through NZ!

    Yup. Already bought it. It was part of our checklist of stuff to get before we leave. :)

    I loved the scenery in Scotland, and Loch Lomond was no exception. On a good day the nature in Scotland has to be among the most beautiful in Europe :)

      Couldn’t agree more Sofia! We got really lucky – the weather was horrible for most of the day until we arrived at Loch Lomond to get these pictures!

      Enjoy your time in Scotland! If you need any advice, let us know – we sure learned a lot of valuable lessons in our 4 days.

    Great photos guys! Love the reflection of the clouds in the Loch. Your road trip makes me so nostalgic for Scotland – I used to live there and have often thought of doing so again.

    The photos are awesome! I would have been singing The Bonnie Banks o’ Lock Lomond the entire time. Can’t wait to go to Scotland! =)

      Thanks Tawny – haha we didn’t know about the song but definitely would have recorded a video of us singing it had we known!
