    I'm up for 4 days for Easter. Gonna catch the game on Saturday. Is there anything else on worth while taking a look at? Was gonna take a drive Sunday through the mountains weather permitting. Any advise on where to visit that is reasonably close?

    Anything else worthy checking out except the football?

    Glasgow’s better for events, in my opinion. If you want to do some sight-seeing, head north or through to Edinburgh.

    The Lost Valley of Glencoe is worth doing if you're into a hike and have a few hours to kill. You park up at the '3 sisters of Glencoe' car park and it's probably about 3 hours all in. The Clachaig Inn does decent scran for after.

    Either that or Ben Lomond if you've never done it. Cracking views and if you're travelling from Glasgow it's at least an hour less of a drive.

    Just had a look at the lost valley. Looks spot on. Just what I’m after. Looks a pleasant walk nothing too demanding.

    Will check out Ben Lomond now

    Recommend you take a drive through Argyll heading to Inverray, some of the best scenary i have ever seen and no doubt you can reroute to Fort William from there, your in for a treat no matter what direction you take to Fort William enjoy.

    Loch Lomond's nice,but Glencoe is something else.There's plenty to do and see in Glasgow though,so * the mountains.
