Today we took a tour of the highlands (or lowlands should I say… Scotland is actually quite huge). Our guide was a true Scott – very patriotic about his country and it’s history. I think the passengers on the bus were afraid he was going to run off the road several times with all his pounding on the dash and waving at the map of Scotland pinned onto the ceiling of the bus.
All in all – we saw some of the most beautiful scenery I’ve ever scene… and I understand it gets better as you go farther north. We visited three castles and saw several lochs (lakes) and mountains. Joey remarked that it’s like people up and moved out leaving everything behind hundreds of years ago – I would agree with that one. It feels totally free and wild 🙂
