It was time again to pack the bags to visit one of my favourite travel destinations, the Highlands of western Scotland. This time though it was to be different, my wife was accompanying me who has up to now been very sceptical of the Scottish climate. As it turned out, we were lucky to enjoy 13 out of the 14 day stay with enjoyable weather, not always sunny but at least dry. In the first week we had uninterrupted sunshine, the second week turned cooler with a shower here & there. My primary aim this time round was to prove to my wife how beautiful Scotland really is & where possible to shoot some material along the way too. As a result the holiday was perfect, the pictures were good & my wife was so impressed that she would like to return. Now that can’t be bad now can it?

The 1890 completed Forth Bridge connects Edinburgh with the north & is since 2016 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
