For our summer holiday this year, we decided that sunshine and relaxing on beaches is overrated (just joking, that’s never overrated) but that we wanted to drive around and camp in Scotland instead. In classic ‘we’re on holiday’ style, we got over excited and attempted to see as much as humanly possible, which in beautiful Scotland, turns out to be quite a lot. We squeezed in a weekend in Edinburgh, eating haggis, camping on an uninhabited island, drinking whisky, climbing a snow topped Ben Nevis, eating (and mispronoucing) cranachan, pitching up next to the most turquoise water I’ve ever seen, eating porridge, buying tweed and pitching a tent on a clifftop in a gale. It’s a peaceful place, the variety of scenery is phenomenal, the people are lovely and the food and drink are delicious. As Scotland is far more beautiful than I remembered, only pictures can really do it justice. Don’t you go panicking, I’ve deleted all the ‘just crawled out my sleeping bag after a night being woken up by curious sheep’ photos.
Scotland – you are very bloody lovely and cannot wait to come back and intrigue your wildlife with our tent soon.
Don’t forget that I always love hearing from you! do you have the same (near obsessive) love for Scotland as I do? Where’s the most beautiful place you’ve visited?
