Wanderlust

Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” — Dalai Lama

A popular tourist attraction, the Jacobite steam locomotive-hauled train follows the same route through the West Highland region of Scotland as shown in the Harry Potter films.

The longest staircase lock in Britain, Neptune’s Staircase lifts boats 64’ through a series of eight locks at the southern end of the Caledonian canal. It takes boats about 90 minutes to pass through the staircase.

Shoppers stroll down the streets of Fort William, ordered built in 1654 by William of Orange to control the Highland clans.

Common and gray seals rest on the reef island of Black Rock.

Afternoon shadows close in on Lochaber scenery.
