The Trossachs, Glencoe and Skye

The final part of our trip around Scotland took us north-west from Glasgow, through the Trossachs, through Glencoe and on to Fort William and Skye. It was the first time I'd been to Glencoe and have to admit I was totally blown away by the incredible scenery. Skye was amazing too and definitely a place to visit again when we have more time.

Alas we're back home again now and from the 3 manic days I've had back at work this week it almost feels like I need another holiday already, but at least I have these vintage postcards to remind me.

This will probably be the last of my Scotland blog posts for a while, but I need to get my imagination going and come up with a new topic for next week.

Pass of the Trossachs, by artist Ernest Longstaffe, published by Hildesheimer, number 5189

In the Trossachs, "Where Twines the Path", by the artist Brian Gerald, published by Valentine, number A518

As always, I have hundreds of vintage postcards for sale on my vintage postcards web site
