I would’ve kept delaying visiting Scotland if it wasn’t for my friend E! I think because Scotland feels so close to my current home (London), I’ve taken visiting it a bit for granted. Later, later…I can always go there…later. However, E was passing through Europe from the US, and we had the perfect opportunity to meet up somewhere nearby, and we decided to make it Edinburgh!
Man, was it worth it!
It was still dark when we left Edinburgh at 8AM and I was planning to snooze a little bit. But the increasingly gorgeous views out the window simply did not allow it! It was the perfect opportunity, as well, to stare out the window and think super deep thoughts (one of my favourite past times). 😉
We made 5 stops along the way, including spending a few hours at Loch Ness. Here are some photographic highlights, which I think speak for themselves!
Anyway, this tour was total perfection! Going in January, according to our guide, was really key. He said August is high season, and there are stampedes of tourists, so you can’t get that serene feel we absolutely loved. This was also the weekend I finally got my awesome new camera and had a lot of fun testing it out with Scotland as a backdrop.
