Glen Croe is the name of the passage between mountains that run from Arrochar on the shores of Loch Long, to Cairndowe, on the shores of Loch Fyne. At the beginning I found it a little funny to see these hills were called the Arrochar Alps. But after some research and and pictures of the snow covered mountains, and yes, it certainly looks a bit like the Alps. Most of the mountain is part of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs nature reserve, but can easily get away from the trails and set up camp where you want, it is permitted. The mountains in the Glen Croe are Ben Donich and The Cobbler which overlook Arrochar. You can stay in the Restil Loch car park, which is high, and you can then go for a walk. There is not much vegetation so the wind blows a lot. The weather in Scotland changes rapidly, and you can have a perfect morning and then a disastrous afternoon. I recommend that you always have a plan B to return in these cases. The Glen is on the A83 road, an old military road built sometime during the 18th century. The landscapes are very beautiful, even if you just take a drive.
The route that you should follow to Bristol, one of the largest in the Southwest of Britain, fills you with pleasure as you alternate between "story-tale" villages and rocky coastal marine with waves crashing against the shore. Whether you're in a car or on a bus tour, be sure to get off to take photos or go to an inn for a beer, it's an experience before reaching your destination.
Stansted Airport is 56 miles northwest of London, towards Cambridge. Although it is a good road and the buses that run from the airport are modern and fast, the ride is a bit heavy and it usually takes at least 1 hour and a half due to traffic. The bus runs through the center to Victoria Station.
Okay, so when I say Devon you probably start thinking about the beautiful English countryside, but there's an area by the same name here in Scotland. It's a rural trail through the county of Clackmannanshire, which passes some of the most interesting places in the area, like Sauchie Tower and the old mill on the outskirts of the village of Alloa, and March Glen. The trail is not a historical route, but has been promoted recently by the government looking to please more active tourists. Walkers, cyclists and motorists can all follow the Devon Way, which can be covered in a day. The road itself has everything, with history, nature and good places to rest and refuel. As a lover of mountains and trails, I think it is a great idea!
