Travel Tuesday: Mom's 1953 Europe Road Trip - Scotland

From Mom's Europe trip diary, in the "PLACES VISITED" section:
August 18, 19, & 20 – Road between Bridge of Allan and Larne, Ulster [2 pages]
Next day [Aug 19] drove through Trossachs and to Loch Katrine, then went north and drove along side of Loch Lomond, where we had lunch. Drove through Glasgow and stopped for night at Symington—place called Half Way Hotel. Very nice.
