Or, for a shorter route, there is the Summerlee to Drumpellier walk and cycleway. The Time Capsule has recently reopened after a multi-million pound overhaul and is a great place to let the kids let off steam with its water chutes and flumes.

Isle of Mull Part 6. Iona. [04:22]
Part 6 sequence of the Isle of Mull tour is the lovely little island of Iona. It is here where Christianity first arrived in Scotland and the church is built on that site. This visit was part of the Fingals Cave tour and although we had nearly two hours here Iona deserves more time than that to explore it properly. It can become rather busy withy other visitors at peak holiday time but certainly well worth time to visit here. Iona is just off the coast from Mull and along with the boat tours which visit here you can make you own way over by using the CalMac ferry.
