I finally managed to get to the Highlands of Scotland. It was remarkably beautiful. I had been told it was like Ireland, but the landscapes are vaster, the mountains are higher, and the glens are wilder.
I sold the trip to my friends by describing it as a hunt for Nessy, but she was notably absent during our trip. Mind you, Loch Ness is impressive all by itself and doesn’t need a mythical monster for it to be worth a visit.
