Last month I spent 10 days driving around Scotland, which was an absolute blast! The typical Scottish weather only managed to wipe out one day (we saw 2 nice days, the rest were a mix of sun, rain, hail, snow and almost always wind!), otherwise you could generally wait for the local rain to pass to check stuff out (changing every 30mins or so). The followin are some of the favourite shots. Any CC gladly taken on board! 1. Edinburgh Castle gates 2. Victoria Street 3. Edinburgh Rooftops 4. Edinburgh Streets 5. Old Calton 6. Chillin on the National Monument 7. Edinburgh bagpipes 8. Cemetary 9. National Museum of Scotland 10. Kelvingrove Museum - Glasgow 11. New and Old - Glasgow 12. Glasgow 13. Glasgow Streets 14. Glasgow Streets 15. Little Man, Big City 16. Kelvingrove by Night 17. Kilchurn Ruins In this case we arrive with the sun shining and blue skies above, perfect chance to hike the k or two to the castle. But this is early in the trip and hadn't learned the important rule for scotland - never go out without proper rain protection! The 15min dash back to the car afterwards was enough to have us soaked to the bone . 18. Road to Fort William The backroads were the best place to be. The winding two way track only wide enough for one car meant it took forever to get anywhere, but the scenery meant you didn't care in the slightest. 19. Road to Fort Willaim 20. So. Many. Sheep 21. Rannoch Moor 22. Glencoe Absolutely stunning place, wish we'd had time to properly explore. But on this day this was taken between giant storms on either side of us, and having just been dumped on we weren't keen to try our luck straight away! Busy schedule the following days meant we never made it back though. Next time Glencoe, next time! 23. Scottish Highlands 24. Ben Nevis As luck would have it, the aforementioned perfect days just so happened to land when we wanted to do some hiking! Ben Nevis is the highest peak in the UK at a bit over 1300m. Doesn't sound like much, but it's a proper day's hike, starting in a T-shirt at the bottom and ending rugged up to the eyeballs at the top! 25. Ben Nevis Hard to get a better view of the highlands! 26. View from Ben Nevis 27. Decending Ben Nevis 28. Ben Nevis 29. Red Robin 30. Highlander Bloody highland cows! If you go by the tourist postcards, you'd swear these guys are around every freaking bend. Instead we only found em 3 times, compared to the half a million sheep we spotted . 31. Highlander 32. Old Man of Storr The reason we didn't get back to Glencoe. Having checked the weather we had 2 nice days, followed by a tonne of bad ones. One day went to Ben, and we decided the next would be gettin to the top of the Isle of Skye to check out The Storr. Gotta say it was worth it! 33. Top of the Storr 34. Top of the World 35. The Fairy Glens 36. Fairy Glens 37. Isle of Skye 38. Dornie Once again off the beaten path, we stayed down this road rather than on Skye. 39. Dornie 40. Eilean Donan The location meant we were a stones throw from this stunning castle. Unfortunately the weather meant I didn't get around to doing a proper shot at sunset/night like planned. 41. The road to Inverness 42. Loch Ness Has to be said, not the most impressive of the Loch's we passed, but ya can't go to Scotland and not have a quick look for the beast! 43. Nessie! 44. The Black Isle 45. Abandoned - The Black Isle 46. Down the Garden Lane 47. Drive Carefully 48. 49. Cairngorns National Park Not actually sure where we bloody were . Somewhere on the long drive from Inverness back South to our last stop just outside of Perth. 50. Grazing 51. Stand Tall 52. Teddy Bears 53. Scotland 54. Highlander Imitator The end! Bit heavy on the pics, but hopefully they all stand up well enough! Glasgow and Edinburgh were certainly fun to visit, but the reason you go to Scotland is certainly to get out into the wilderness. Could easily spend a week at Glencoe or the Cairngorns and just go exploring. Definitely could come back again some day!
