Tour Scotland Video Walking Tour Ben Lawers Mountain Highlands



Tour Scotland wee video of photographs of a small group walking photography tour of Ben Lawers mountain in Highland Perthshire, Scotland. Ben Lawers, Gaelic: Beinn Labhair, is the highest mountain in the southern part of the Scottish Highlands. It lies to the north side of Loch Tay, and is the highest point of a long ridge that includes seven Munros. Prior to the 14th century, the mountain stood on the lands of Clan MacMillan. Chalmers of Lawers obtained the land by force from the clan in the mid 14th century in the reign of King David II. The land was confiscated from the Chalmers family in 1473 by King James III and given to Sir Colin Campbell of Glenorchy after Thomas Chalmers was implicated in the murder of King James I. The lands have mainly remained in the ownership of the Campbells of Glenorchy and Breadalbane right up to the present day.
