Belated Vacation Photos: Scotland, My Love!

So it occurred to me the other day that I never shared any photos from our summer trip to Scotland. I have been to Scotland before, back when my husband and I were boyfriend and girlfriend, walking the Great Glenn Way, and generally soaking up the loveliness that is the Highlands. This time around it was a different trip with a four year old in tow, but equally as awesome, especially since my parents joined us. It was a real family affair!

Instead of hiking all day like before, we day-tripped in a rather large Chevrolet something-or-other, which felt especially perilous on narrow Highland roads with my “usually-driving-on-the-right-side-of-the-road” husband at the wheel. We also spent time in Edinburgh which I loved more than words can say, and Glasgow which I appreciate for its non-touristy vibe and the amazing Kelvingrove Museum! And please don’t get me started on the Isle of Skye, truly breathtakingly beautiful.

I hope you enjoy the slideshow below. Let me know if you have a favorite photo!

  1. All your pictures are wonderful! I’ll have to add Scotland on my bucket list.

    1. Thank you! It really is a beautiful country. Definitely worth a visit 🙂

  2. I adore that you loved Edinburgh more than words can say! It can be magical, but sometimes the business of the tourist areas and the Princes Street tramworks and the tacky tartan souvenir shops can put visitors off – glad you got to see through all that and appreciate the city!

    1. Thanks Debbie! We had an amazing time in Edinburgh. I think it helped that we rented an apartment and stayed for a week. We really got to settle in and explore beyond the touristy stuff (although we WERE tourists, so we enjoyed most of that too!) I would love to come back someday, maybe once the tram construction is done 😉

  3. Wonderful slideshow. Love those floating heads.


    1. Aren’t they great?! That was one of my favorite displays in the museum. So unusual, and a great photo opportunity 🙂

  4. Love the photos! And you sharing the trip with us readers:) Hope you get some time to make a photo book out of them!
