Day Three - head from Speyside by Cromdale to the Drumochter Pass; a stop at the House of Bruar (a highland emporium), via the Queen's View of Loch Rannoch and the shoulder of the fairy hill of Schielhallion to Fortingall for possibly Europe's Oldest Tree; via resplendent Loch Tay, the Falls of Dochart and Loch Lomond (reknowned in Jacobite song) to stay at the conveniently situated, friendly and stylish boutique hotel bed and breakfast, 15 Glasgow.
