The Great Glen, Scotland

Jul 1

To be considered for recognition as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, an area has to be pretty special.  That a bid was recently submitted for the entire length of the Great Glen and Caledonian Canal, from Fort William on the West coast of Scotland to Inverness on the East, to receive the same status as the Great Wall of China and the Great Barrier Reef suggests that people hold the area in high regard.  And rightly so.  A trip along the Caledonian Canal offers up some stunning natural beauty, enough interesting historical sites to keep a coach load of American tourists happy for weeks, a whole host of wildlife, and of course the chance of an encounter with the infamous and elusive Loch Ness Monster.
