This weekend, I was able to take a 3 day trip through Scotland, including many of its famous lochs, many not-so-famous brochs and beaches, and lots of hills and mountains in the highlands. I won’t even attempt to describe it’s beauty in words-it would do it absolutely no justice! Just have a look…
We took an early bus from Newcastle to Edinburgh, Scotland to meet the tour guide at their offices. We only saw the city for an hour, but it seems like a great city-lots of old buildings, a castle right in the center, lots of cafes and small restaurants (we had the best “sopa de tortilla” at Viva Mexico when we got back!). I got my first glimpse of men in kilts! Ross, the guide, showed us where we were and where we were going on a map in the van. It was a small group of only 12 people. He always gave loads of information about the region and played some authentic Celtic music. Fun times!
