These are just a few of the photos that I took while we vacationed in Scotland. We took 2 weeks to tour the country during our PCS from NAS Corpus Christi TX to NOB in Norfolk VA.
It was absolutely beautiful and the photos do not do the country justice. There is so much to see and do and we only got to see a small portion of it. We flew into London Heathrow and then drove up to Perthshire. We were just down the road from Duchally Farm in a condo at Duchally Hotel in Glen Eagle. The Doves are residents of the Condo. We did get the 10 day Explorer Pass, and it is well worth the money! We also spent a day in Isle of Skye, went down to Edinburgh, visited the castle and wondered the town. Visit http://www.edinburghcastle.gov.uk/ to buy admission tickets. Several days we went through the Glenco Mountains where we saw MANY deer including the one in the photos. We visited Queens View, many lochs such as Loch Tay, Earn, Leven and the Famous Loch Ness just to name a few. Our middle one swears he saw Nessie :D.
Went up to Fort George etc...
With the Historical Scotland Pass we were able to visit Arbroath Abbey, Edinburgh Castle, Broughty Castle, Dunkeld Cathedral, Huntingtower Castle, Lochleven Castle, Stanley Mills, Stirling Castle, Urquhart Castle.
We did a seperate Pass that I believe included, Blair Castle, Glamis Castle, Blair Atholl Distillery another Distillery and some where else. Again worth the money.
We did some hiking, so several Waterfalls BIG and small. Dochart Falls was one of them. We were able to see our first star fish in nature up close. We did see some when we went to Alaska last year but we were on a boat. The one we saw here must have been dying as it was on the shore. BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. Can't say it enough.
I have to go back and see all of the things that we didn't have time for. I hope it is sooner rather than later :D
