As you bid farewell to Nessie and pass through the Great Glen, you'll reach the Commando Memorial which was dedicated to the Royal Marine Commandos who trained there during WWII. You'll have a quick stop here to look at the monument and to snap some shots of Ben Nevis which is the UK's highest mountain. Then it's onto Glen Coe which is steeped in beauty and history. As you stand at the mouth of the glen, you'll feel the past come to life as your guide tells you about the terrible massacre of Glen Coe and the parts that the clans played in this brutal part of Scottish history.

As you leave the Highlands behind and head back to the city, you'll pass by the Stirling to salute William Wallace which is the perfect end to your Scottish adventure!
