My family and I had the pleasure of travelling to Scotland in October 2005 for the first time in our lives.  As part of the trip we were able to spend two too-short days in the areas of Upper Strathearn, Loch Earn, Balquhidder, Stirling and Doune.  Below are a sample of some of the photos we took.  Please click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
