MUNROS: BEN ALDER -Adverts to be removed!!!! [02:48]
"Ben Alder rises steeply from Loch Ericht, the Loch of Assemblies, in the heart of the Central Highlands. On its plateau sparkle the clear waters of many a hill burn that has its birth here, and in most places the ground is yellow with the flowers of the marsh marigold. Ben Alder's name is obscure. Blaeu in the seventeenth century wrote of the hill as Bin Aildir". This is Ben Alder and Beinn Bheoil from Culra bothy via the Loch Ericht approach. Two evenings at the bothy enabled long Munro- bagging days on the hill. After walking into the bothy we dumped some gear and headed up to the summits. This entire area is of course associated with the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie and his assistance from Clan Chief Cluny MacPherson. "For six days in the late summer of 1746 (September 6 to 12) the Prince remained in the Cage with Lochiel, Cluny, and others. Then, hearing of the arrival of the French vessels at Lochnanuagh he immediately set out westwards. As one looks down from the summit of Ben Alder upon the great stones which traditionally are the remains of Cluny's Cage it is possible to visualize the life the Prince led during his six days of hiding here. To the old people this is still Cluny's country . ." The above should not be confused with Cluny's (own) Cave where he hid for 9-years despite Government troops looking for him, before he escaped to France only to die the following year. As regards Bonnie Prince Charlie (the only person to be named after three sheepdogs ...

"Hogmanay in the Harbour" Robjstaples's photos around Oban, United Kingdom [01:49]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Oban, United Kingdom by TravelPod blogger Robjstaples titled "Hogmanay in the Harbour" Robjstaples's travel blog entry: "Hogmanay was unplanned, spontaneous and great. Unfortunately, my hopes of going to Edinburgh didn't come to fruition so it was a case of jump online and figure out where I could get to by train from my work in Glasgow which had a youth hostel. Having rattled a few memories of a previous trip exploring Scotland, the answer, Oban came to me quickly, and so it was that I rolled up at the hostel to find what looked more like a retirement home than a YOUTH Hostel. I was bemused but not half as stunned as my Australian dorm mates, Gavin and Justin who having come hoping for a famous night out were getting very worried about where they'd ended up. Oban's a very pretty place, very obviously geared up for tourists but not at all in your face about it. The locals we met were as friendly as I've found anywhere and fortunately provided us with a few pointers on how to find the better bars in town. It all made for a great night. Unfortunately, by the time midnight arrived my Aussie friends were living up to their national stereotype of not being able to drink and couldn't understand that everyone was going outside to watch the fireworks, sing Auld Lang Syne and listen to the pipes being played and the ships in the port sounding their fog horns. For a small place, Oban suddenly became very noisy and the party ...
