About the tour

Join me as I take a stroll around the shoreline of Loch Leven. Starting in Ballachulish, we will head to the waters edge and learn more about the local history. Hear the story of the Appin Murder, the real and tragic tale that inspired Robert Louis Stevensons 'Kidnapped'. Listen to local legends and learn more about the clans that resided around the loch. Tremble at stories of raiding vikings, and join in my wonder as we explore the mysterious Cnocan Dubh and try to work out what used to be here. The views are spectacular at almost every turn, with the Pap of Glencoe, the Ballachulish Horseshoe and Beinn na Caillich towering over the ever changing waters. For those of you who have joined my Ballachulish tour many of the sights will be familiar, but from a different and much more open perspective with the relaxing lapping of the waves on the stony shore. A real treat for the soul!


Meet Craig

Craig

Craig lives in Ballachulish, on the west coast of Scotland. He can be found exploring the mountains and glens, hill walking or mountain biking. He loves Scotland’s wild places, its rugged coastlines and soaring peaks. But his real passion lies in the long, intricate and often bloody history for which Scotland is famous and he loves nothing more than sharing this passion with all who join him on his travels. Loaded with stories – both humorous and fascinating – a tour with Craig is both rewarding and fun.

Incredible views and fantastically dramatic sky. Wonderful to be able to see such places from a distance. Craig is extremely knowledgeable and has great stories to tell - love hearing them and listening to a Scottish accent.

Come for the views, stay for the stories. I have been using HeyGo for a while and Craig's tours never matched with my schedule. Suddenly an opening appeared and OMG - what have I been missing? The views are breathtaking and there are no words to describe how beautiful and peaceful they are. What makes it better is having Craig, one of the most talented storytellers not only from this platform but even beyond that. All I can say is that if you have a conflict, is worth moving the other commitment to make time for this tour.
