Out of the many times I have traveled over to the UK, I had never been to Scotland. There has always been so much to occupy my time in England (well…mostly London..there’s too much to do!) that I just never got up to the northern part of the island.
So when I knew I was going back out there, I made sure that I got up to Scottish soil. Though my time was limited, I did get to see some of the things I’ve always wanted to; starting with Loch Lomond.
You know the old folk song, right? Here’s a preview:
On the morning of, we stopped by the Waverly Station in Edinburgh to pick up our car…as well as some breakfast.
Those pasties will haunt me with delicious dreams..
The drive there was beautiful as well, lots of green.
And the path to the lake was fairly scenic too.
And the lake itself…
On Loch Lomond, there are lots of different activities you can do, including Kayaking and mini-cruises.
We went for the mini-cruise.
Surrounding the edges of the lake are numerous castles an golf courses.
And the northern side of the lake is also the beginning of the highlands of Scotland.
Honestly, it was a beautiful way to start the day. I’d recommend checking it out as well as the surrounding area. There are several pubs, museums, castles, etc that are easily accessible and within walking distance of the lake!
