Scotland Wrap Up

I apologise for not getting this post up sooner! I had a fantastic holiday in Scotland last month but after a rather turbulent flight home I needed a little downtime. Then before I knew it I was back at work and into things full swing!

Anyway, I promised some pics from our trip and here they are!

We spent a few days in London… loved the Camden Markets! Saw “Matilda the Musical” at the Cambridge Theatre… it was AMAZING! For those in Aus… it comes to Sydney in Aug 2015 and I highly recommend you check it out.

Then we took a five hour train ride up to Glasgow (in first class!) before picking up our hire car and setting out on a road trip up the west coast of Scotland from Fort William up to Isle of Skye.

Isle of Skye is definitely one of the highlights of the trip! The scenery was STUNNING.

Next stop was Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands. We hoped to spot Old Nessie but unfortunately he was nowhere to be seen.

Finally, we arrived in Edinburgh where we experienced our first days of sunshine! We stayed for a week as I had to attend a conference for a couple of days.

On the way home we had a stopover in Amsterdam. The Anne Frank Museum was definitely worth the 50 minute wait in line.

And so that’s it! My hubby and I are so happy to be back home in our own little slice of countryside heaven. Our pooch is happy too 🙂

  1. Sounds like a great trip! I’d love to go to Scotland one day, a lot of my mother’s family comes from there (although quite a few generations ago now). My parents spent a couple of weeks there last year and they had some really beautiful photos!

    • We had a lot of fun Bree, and Scotland is such a beautiful place to visit. Photos don’t do it justice! My ancestry lies in Ireland… so I was bummed we couldn’t fit that into the time we had for our trip. Maybe next time!
