Scotland 2009

My first trip ever to Scotland & I was so excited to see how life & the scenery differs up there in comparison to the far south of England where I come from.

As it turned out I was more than impressed. I thought Cornwall was wild & rugged but Scotland’s West coast is something else with islands & snow capped mountains, large lakes plus some stunning castles with dramatic history to match.

My second trip was to be a repeated trip to the West Highlands as I just enjoyed it so much the first time & there is so much to discover there.

My second visit to the Scottish Highlands were 2 months later this time in May, I wanted to see how it was to look in Spring with less snow, the first blooming meadows & leaves on the trees again. I wasn’t to be disappointed & enjoyed being back in my second home up North.

Scotland 2013

The Highlands of Scotland are developing into a habit it seems. This time I even convinced my wife to accompany me.

After showing off so many beautiful images of the Highlands & telling the matching tales I eventually twisted my wife’s arm to accompany me on a third trip to the Scottish Highlands plus a return journey to Edinburgh on the milder East side in June. It was stunning.
