Well Scotland… You did it… You made me sad to leave. I bought extra souvenirs to make up for how much I didn’t want to leave!
We had an amazing time with amazing friends exploring what we could in less than a week!
Yes a week! We saw some of the beautiful highlands, stayed mostly in Edinburgh and found some highland cows! Did you know:
Their hair is always long, sometimes reaching about 13 inches, with a slight wave. Since their coat is double-layered, the outer hair is oiled to prevent rain seeping into their skin, while the downy undercoat provides warmth during the rough and rainy Scottish winters.
I found a new favorite castle. It was Dunnotter castle!
Did you know:
It was at Dunnottar Castle that a small garrison held out against the might of Cromwell’s army for eight months and saved the Scottish Crown Jewels, the ‘Honours of Scotland’, from destruction.
Kelpies!!! It was a sight to see! I even had an ice cream and it was cold.
Did you know:
Built of structural steel with a stainless steel cladding, The Kelpies are 30 metres high and weigh 300 tonnes each.
It was also Neil’s birthday so we had a lovely meal and did some yummy whisky tasting. Now we officially want to buy a a distillery and live in the isles of Scotland. Like Ron effing Swanson (from parks and rec!!)
It was breathtaking and beautiful walking and driving through this beautiful place!
