Touring Scotland can sometimes leave you feeling a bit
... soggy, bloated, & cold...
But after a few days in the Highlands,
I'm only feeling glorious!
Our weekend on the Isle of Skye shocked me.
Literally, I never expected such sites here in the United Kingdom...
(and you know how much I love the United Kingdom.)
Dramatic hills, lush mountains sprinkled with Highland Coo's & sheep,
dreamy castles sitting cozily in the middle of a lake,
small fishing towns that seemed pleasantly situated in times past,
& so much Cullen Skink (local Haddock chowder),
even the most opposed eater-of-fish could become a convert.
But the most impressive sites were the lakes.
Err, excuse me...
Our weekend was full of random pit-stops
that found us standing in silence
with our mouthes open & our cameras clicking
at the mirrored expanse sprawling before us.
As if one version of the scenery wasn't pretty enough-
the stillness of the water in the sunshine
gave us a bit of double vision.
