In the summer of 2017, we visited Scotland and loved our time there so much we returned for an even longer two week trip in the summer of 2018.
Over the course of those two trips, we visited the two largest cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, explored the Western Highlands and the Isle of Mull, drove the sparsely populated but absolutely gorgeous North Coast 500, tasted whiskey in Speyside and saw more castles than we could count in Aberdeenshire.
We took an overnight sleeper car train from London to Inverness, a first-class train ride from Glasgow to London, and drove over 1000 miles in a rental car. We ate haggis, black pudding, all manner of smoked salmon, lots of lamb and fish, and tasted a different distilleries’ whiskey and gin every day. We stayed castles, quaint B&Bs, manor houses, and big brand hotels.
We loved Every. Single. Minute. Of. It.
