Tour Scotland Video Walking Tour Lochaber Highlands



Tour Scotland wee video of photographs of a small group walking tour to Lochaber in the West of the Scottish Highlands of Scotland. The Clan Cameron lands are in Lochaber. Historically Lochaber referred to the area between Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven, around the town of Fort William. It is now also used to refer to a much wider area. According to legend a glaistig, an evil woman goat hybrid, once lived in the area. Lochaber is mentioned by Adomnan of Iona in his biography of St Columba. Stories related to Columba using his saintly blessing to raise people out of poverty and make them wealthier. In one story, Columba met a poor man named Nesán in Lochaber who had five cows. Columba blessed the poor man's cows and his own descendants, and the poor man's five cows multiplied until he had a herd of one hundred and five cows. In days gone by the Lochaber the district included North Lorne, Glen Coe, Nether Lochaber, the western part of the Rannoch Moor, the Road to the Isles, Moidart, Ardgour, Morvern, Sunart, Ardnamurchan, and the Small Isles, Rùm, Eigg, Muck and Canna. Laggan Dam is a dam located on the River Spean in this area.
