The Enchanting, Majestic Scotland

Pin It PIN IT!

As I sit here, hands on the keys ready to pour my soul into this post about Scotland, nothing comes to mind. Not because I didn’t learn or experience anything there, but because no matter what I say and how I say it, I will never do this majestic place justice. I can tell you that the views in the city and the countryside take your breath away to the point you have trouble breathing.

I can tell you that the people are animated, proud, extremely playful, absolutely hilarious, passionate and loving.

I can tell you that on every corner you’ll find a castle from the 12th century towering over the soft, rolling hills painted in bright greens, yellows and oranges.

I can tell you that the food is unbelievably comforting and decadent. I can tell you that the culture, the traditions and the history are so moving you can’t help but cry.

I can tell you I had the time of my life with the most amazing new friends a girl could ask for. I can tell you we had so much fun I was crying laughing about 95% of the time.

I could tell you all of this but it won’t make an impact on you. So instead, I chose to show you. Tell my story of the most enchanting place on earth with photos and videos. Again, a huge thank you to Disney and Pixar for the incredible experience.  *I’m trying to get the videos to work so when they do, I’ll share them!

    Feeling homesick looking at your photos - recognise the shots, including the castle that French hubby is convinced I have hidden, lol. Shh - it's that pyramid thingy. See it? Worth a fortune. So is the photo of you with a chanter. I've had to delete what I said but if we were in person over a single malt, we'd laugh about that one.

    Disney? Pixar? Don't tell me they're going to make Scotland into a cartoon? Jings.

      HAHA! They did, have you seen Brave? It's such a good movie! :) And I'm glad I gave it some of the credit it deserves, I'm so in love with that place.

    What an amazing trip!!! My sister is going to Ireland for her honeymoon... that part of Europe is just so rich with history (as you described) and beautiful (as you showed!) I'm quite jealous! You look like you fit in there with your gorgeous hair... just throw some plaid on you!
