Once you get over Haggis - which I still haven't tried by the way - Scotland is there to fall in love with. I took a short break with Mum May last year to Inverness and the Isle of Skye, staying in Plockton village on Loch Carron. The seafood and venison is out of this world and the wild, rugged scenery blows you away. It's a photographer's dream because the light is constantly changing. The 4-day trip was taking in some of the things I most wanted to see and do in Scotland like walking on Skye, visiting Loch Ness, visiting Eilean Donan Castle where parts of 1 of my favourite films was shot - Entrapment. Got to love a bit of Sean Connery! Also we travelled in spring time so lambing season was in full flow, daffs were everywhere and the weather was beautiful. It may have been a different trip altogether if the weather had been rubbish - as we'd packed for - you don't live in Britain and not expect rain at any moment. It's par for the course. Happy to say, on this occasion, we never used our waterproofs although it was mighty fresh up there!
And hats off (but not for too long else your ears will blow away) to our Guide who was full of tales and made us laugh at every available opportunity :)
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
