Visiting Scotland Soon?

Here are some must-see places for Clan MacFarlane visitors
First for a quick overview, read an introduction to Clan History. Another source for information about the area comes from the Arrochar Heritage Society (The history article was written by Mary Helen Haines in 2005).
When you travel to the area, the two most important and moving places to see are the two islands in Loch Lomond where ruins of former MacFarlane castles can be seen. You will need to rent a boat to visit. Allow about 3 hours. A possible place to rent:
MacFarlane owned enterprise: http://www.balmahaboatyard.co.uk/about.html
Operating from Luss: http://www.loch-lomond.net/boating/lochlomondleisure.aspx
Island I Vow (The island of the cow).
This article is courtesy of our friends at "EXPLORE LOCH LOMOND". They are as excited as I am to have MacFarlane's developing relationships with residents, in the Loch Lomond, Arrochar, Tarbet and Ardlui areas. We have linked with their website and they have reciprocated. Their site is: www.explorelochlomond.co.uk Please check it out.
