Longing for Scotland (#sol17 21/31)

Lately I’ve been really wanting to go to Scotland.  My husband and I went in 2010 and we planned to go back in 2015, but that didn’t happen.  Now my good friend really wants to go with me and I think it would be SO FUN.

But, due to buying a new house, a trip to Michigan in June, and a trip to the Bahamas in July, it won’t be any time soon.

Maybe next summer.  Sigh.

Here are my favorite memories from our last trip told in pictures.

This isIMG_0823 the view from Dunottar Castle, which is pretty much the coolest place I have EVER been.  I mean, check out the view. My cousin took us here because she thought we’d like it, and she was not wrong.

 

 

 

 

This is the view from the other side of the bajillion steps we had to go down to get to it.  We ate over here and ate our lunch with a view of the castle. In-freaking-credible.

We spent some time in Dunfermline Abbey where Robert the Bruce is remembered. It’s gorgeous inside.

Casey, his best friend and girlfriend and I rented a car and traveled around a bit.  We saw Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness.   Casey and Nate also took a little (COLD) dip in Loch Ness.

We kept driving, but along the way we got a flat tire.  It was a tiny fiasco, but definitely memorable.

 

 

 

 

 

Once we got on our way again, we drove threw Glencoe. Oh my gosh, it’s just so gorgeous!

We finished our trip with my mainland cousins in Edinburgh.  Seeing the usual sites and enjoying a gorgeous sunset.

Tomorrow I’ll share my favorite parts of Shetland, where my mom is from, and one of my favorite places ever!  I can’t wait to start planning my next trip to my third “home“.

  1. Oh, you have me remembering how much I love my too-many-years-ago trip to Scotland! It was definitely one of the highlights of a months-long wander around Europe after college. Scotland is just so beautiful. And the people I met were lovely and welcoming. Definitely on my list of have-to-go-back places! 🙂
