    So I don't totally hijack Jessie's thread. These are old and I don't remember a lot of the names anymore.

    "Rest and Be Thankful". There is a wicked road that leads to here, white-knuckle in some spots.

    We were headed to Crainlarich that day and Ft. Williams another. There's a cozy little inn there on a small loch, had a pint and took a quick walk around the docks, but it was pretty cold being that far north and it was spitting rain for a good part of the day.

    Back in Helensburgh where we were staying. This is the Hill House; couldn't take any pictures inside:

    Can't remember the name of this inn but we stopped and had a pint and watched some border collies running about on the grounds:

    The one picture I could get inside the Dalwhinnie distillery, Ft. Williams. It's the highest distillery in Scotland:
