Trip to Scotland

This summer I had the opportunity to visit Scotland.

To be honest I knew that Scotland was beautiful but I never imagined I would visit it so soon. It this was on my to do list but a bit later, when my hair would turn grayer. However, since my GF had a sinusitis surgery at the beginning of the summer, her doctor recommended that she should not stay in the sun for too long…. So, long story short this summer we decided to go to Scotland because the summers are a bit “milder“ there… as opposed to being for example in Sicily. Man, I’m so happy that happened.

Scotland is amazing. I loved it! The landscape, the history, the long windy roads, the narrow mountain passes, the “driving on the wrong side“. It was all amazing. We spent abut 10 days there and visited most of the country, really almost all of it. All in all I drove over 2000KM.

We’ve been to Edinburgh, Sterling, Apple Cross, Portree, all around Isle of Skye, Stonehaven, Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Thurso, and drove across the country along the way.

To get an idea of how beautiful everything is, I recommend taking a look at the pictures below. All were taken with my iPhone 5S, so if you are curious where they were taken just click on it and on Flickr you will see the exact GPS location of each photo.
