Walk the West Highland Way. The West Highland Way is picture postcard Scotland set along old sheep-herding, Jacobite-quelling roads. The 95- mile journey stretches from Milngavie near Glasgow's industrial firmament through a landscape shaped by song, romance and roguish gallantry as much as glacial erosion and the volatile weather. Loch Lomond, Rob Roy's cave, Rannoch Moor and Glencoe are passed, traversed and soaked into the sinew of all who tred the way.
Five of the Most Charming Spots to Get a Lobster Roll on the East Coast
Wonderful lobster rolls and scenery -- recognized scenes from the movie "The Proposal"; ROY MOORE LOBSTER CO. Established in 1918, Roy Moore Lobster Co. in Rockport, Massachusetts, serves up cooked lobster from an unassuming narrow, shingled outpost. But the real beauty of the restaurant is out back: A simple deck overlooks the water, scattered with wood lobster crate tables for dining al fresco. 39 Bearskin Neck, Rockport, Massachusetts, 978-546-6696
What matters more to you: frills or freshness? If it's the latter, come to Rockport. At Roy Moore's there's no nonsense, just the tastiest and most affordable lobster – either whole, on a roll – you'll find. Grab one freshly boiled and cracked and take it outside to eat on the wooden dock overlooking the harbor. Pair it with some chowder, which is loaded with generous chunks of clam, and you'll be sitting pretty. When the food's this good, who needs a tablecloth?
