  Photos from two-and-a-half weeks in Scotland on an adventure to see the land of my ancestors, the Mackays and the Omans.  This trip consisted primarily of a Globus tour, Scottish Highlands and Islands, a busy two-week trip around the coasts of Scotland, with some extra days on my own.

The link to the Pictures File is below the Sample Images.  A Route Map and a Table of Contents are provided below that, both in on-screen and printable forms.
