Sunday morning greeted me with beautiful sunshine and a lovely view from my hotel room (picture below). After a good breakfast I left for the Trossachs, driving along the A81 towards Aberfoyle. Already shortly after leaving Glasgow I was able to enjoy some very nice views of the hills in the winter sun (picture on the right).

Continuing my drive along the A81 I made my way towards the Trossachs when the first fog patches started to appear. I stopped just before Aberfoyle to take the picture below right of a tree in the fog.

My next stop after Aberfoyle was the visitor centre for the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park in the hills just above Aberfoyle. From here I had an excellent view over the hills and the valleys, some still hidden in the fog (picture below left). I also had lunch at the visitor centre and enjoyed sitting outside in the winter sun.

Picture of a view towards the hills behind the visitor centreDue to restoration work the forest paths were closed, so I left and drove on through the hills towards Loch Katrine. Picture of a road in the Trossachs, clear blue sky above
