|Beautiful rolling hills and stone buildings ~ between Aberdeen and Dundee|
|Loch Ness ~ I have been dreaming of coming here since I was a child ~ a big tick on my list of things to do in life|
(P.S. Nessie was "having a nap" when we visited)
|Quaint village near Loch Ness|
|Old walled garden, Culloden House, Inverness|
|Daffodils everywhere we went ~ these were in Aberdeen|
|The Frayed Hem in Edinburgh ~ perfect spot for a crafternoon!|
|My red door obsession was indulged in Edinburgh!|
|Dream house ...|
|Approaching the Highlands|
It is rare that we will visit a place and feel immediately at home ~ like it is somehow familiar and we belong. We felt this way about Scotland, and Edinburgh in particular. I could live there in a heartbeat. It's up there with Melbourne for me, and that's saying something! At the departures area of Edinburgh airport, there is a sign saying "Haste ye back" ~ meaning "return soon" ~ no encouragement needed. Scotland is magic.
I posted lots more pics to my instagram incase you're interested. Hope your weekend has been lovely so far!
