After the Jamborette












 


Once the Jamborette was over, the Scouts each went home with a Scottish Scout for three days of home visitation. Pete also chose home visitation, while Jerry and I rented a car and drove west from Blair Atholl to the Isle of Mull, then back to meet the group in Edinburgh for the flight home. Here are a selection of pictures from our after-Jamborette touring. 


Ardverikie House - or maybe you remember it as Glenbogle House from Monarch of the Glen?

Loch Laggan
After the Jamborette, we stayed one night at the Rumblie B&B in Laggan, the village which stood in for Glenbogle in Monarch


OK, I still like sheep...

Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula
This is where you catch the Kilchoan-Tobermory Ferry

Loch Scridain, Isle of Mull

Tobermory, capital of the Isle of Mull
The ferry lets out right on this waterfront road. We stayed at the Tobermory Hotel, the tan building on the harbor, just left of center. It was the perfect base to spend a day walking around Tobermory and the area. 

Tobermory Light with CalMac ferry MV Clansman
The light is a relatively short and easy walk from Tobermory village. At least, that's what the guidebook says. It was probably about two and a half miles, but well worth the time.

The Falkirk Wheel
The wheel's a marvel of engineering, built in 2000 to link the Union Canal and Forth and Clyde Canal, replacing a chain of 11 locks which had been dismantled in the 1930's. Boats float into a kind of bathtub on wheels at the end of each arm, and the wheel rotates to lift the boats 115 feet.
