Take me back to Scotland

True to my wish, I’m seeing as much of the UK as I can before I head home! Scotland in one word… AMAZING!

Jack and I caught an early train up to Glasgow and spent the day looking around the city and trekked it to the Trossachs National Park to look at the second biggest lake in Scotland – Loch Lomond. We took packed lunches and sat in the national park with an awesome view of the lake. We (well more me than Jack) decided to go for a little (massive) bush walk up the side of a mountain to get a good view of the lake. Tiring but definitely worth it, and even stopped to get a “wee” ice cream on the way back.

The next 2 days were spent exploring Edinburgh. I LOVED Edinburgh. I think this is probably the only other city I’ve been to, apart from Sydney that I could live in. Don’t know about the usual Scottish weather but it was beautiful while we were there! Our hostel was awesome, right outside Edinburgh castle. The Princes Gardens, the Royal Mile, the Castle, the climb up to the top of Arthurs Seat – it was all great. I wish I could have spent more time there.

Next stop Lakes District! Bring it on xx
