How has everyone's week been?!
My week (if you're wondering) has been fantastic.
Because I'm in Scotland! Woo!
I arrived in Edinburgh on the 3rd of September, which also happened to be my brothers 15th birthday. We were still in Edinburgh on the 5th of September which was my Dad's 47th birthday and we had a lovely day! We also travelled to Stirling, Inverness (and Loch Ness), Oban and tomorrow Inveraray over the course of the week. Unfortunately I'll be leaving Scotland tomorrow afternoon but I'll be heading to the Lakes District again to meet up with relatives! (Yay, I miss them)
But back to Scotland.. This place is stunning. Where ever I have been I've just been gob smacked at how simply beautiful everything is! It is places like this that make me want to stay here and never go home (although I'm really home sick and going home sounds wonderful) just because waking up to a view like Scotland would definitely be a good life!
I want to talk about my favourite day this week though. It was when I travelled with my Mum, Dad and younger (now very taller) brother to the beautiful part of the world that is Loch Ness!
I don't know what it is about the place (maybe the fact there's a mysterious monster who resides there.. or is there?!) but it's just a must go to and must see place when you're travelling through Scotland! Regardless of whether Nessie is real or not, you have to go for a cruise across the Loch in search for her... which I'm not ashamed to say, I did! Although she was no where to be seen I still had a brilliant day! The sun was out and shining across the water, for the tourist attraction that is it there wasn't a load of people there so it was like we had it all to ourselves and the climb to the top of Urquhart Castle is worth the short walk because the views are seriously breathtaking!
I only spent, oh probably 4 and a half hours there all together but it was such a rewarding day. To go there with family was also a bonus, we had so much fun together and it will be something we'll talk about for the rest of our lives.
I honestly and seriously recommend going there if you haven't already, and don't forget to take your own 'Nessie' and catch yourself a 'OMG I saw Nessie' photo, it's all part of the fun!
Anyway, I am now sitting outside at 8pm and my fingers are about to fall off because they're so cold! I'll try to update as often as I have something interesting to say and when I have the time! I have a fun packed few weeks ahead so you'll be hearing from me!
(Oh by the way, we did find Nessie!!)
