After the visits in spring and summer it was time for my last visit in 2004. I left Swindon on a Wednesday evening in early December and drove to Carlisle, where I stayed over night. The next day my very long weekend in Scotland really began with some hillwalking in the Arrochar Alps. More hillwalking as well as a day visiting two museums were to follow. Please find the travelogue from my holiday with further details below:

My first day in Scotland after completing the drive from Carlisle: A short walk on Beinn an Lochain with views over Glen Croe, Gleann Mòr and the Arrochar Alps. You can also view a QuickTime VR panorama of the view from Beinn an Lochain over Glen Kinglas and Glen Croe.
Ben Vorlich (almost)
My second day in Scotland: After a rainy start to the day it cleared up and I had a go at reaching the summit of Ben Vorlich. I didn't make it, but had a nice walk with excellent views nevertheless. You can also view a QuickTime VR panorama of the view south west from the slopes of Ben Vorlich as well as a QuickTime VR panorama of a view over Loch Lomond.

My third day in Scotland: A fairly grey day which I used as a rest day with visits to two museums, Pollok House and the People's Palace on Glasgow Green.
Ben Vane
My fourth day in Scotland: More hillwalking, this time bagging a Munro. A nice walk (despite some clouds) to the summit of Ben Vane. You can also view a QuickTime VR panorama of a cloud covered view from Ben Vane.

The last morning in Glasgow before it was time to drive back to Swindon: A visit to the German Christmas Market on St Enoch Square. Also a few helpful links, books and maps.
And with that my long weekend was over. See you next year?
