I should note that the ferry can take cars from both the front and back - otherwise, cars would have to disembark in reverse. In order to accomplish this, the front of the boat opens up like a military heavy transport aircraft - or like something out of a James Bond film.
More pictures of Harris, taken from the ferry.
And Glen Coe:
Here's the village of Glen Coe, one of the nicer looking villagers I've seen.
I finally stopped in the town of Oban. Oban is a nice place for a traveller to hang out - it's a compact little town, yet has many modern amenities (like it's own movie theatre), and a ferry terminal. It's also located within striking range of many interesting west-coast sites.
I took advantage of the movie theatre and saw "Shakespeare in Love" which in my opinion was good, but not really Oscar material. Shows what I know.
In this country, the phrase "If you don't like the weather, wait five
minutes - it will change" is not an exaggeration.
