Had a week off and decided to go down south to Albany, Pemberton and Denmark, places I hadn’t been for about 10yrs so it was definitely time again!
Back to work now!
Another weekend, another visit up into the highlands. We caught the train from Glasgow to Inverness (the Highland Capital) and then took a bus to a small town called Drumnadrochit (pronounced drum-na-drock-it), which is an ideal place to visit Loch Ness.
There are quite a few good hills to climb around the town which offer panoramic views to Loch Ness and the surrounding valley. Really beautiful scenery, spend a good half day here and then make your way down to Urquhart Castle.
Following a day in the Highlands, we stayed in Edinburgh overnight and decided to go to Arthur’s Seat in the morning. Great climb, the views from the top of Edinburgh are amazing. Definitely climb to the top of the little rise at the top of the hill. One of the highlights of the trip up to this point!
Edinburgh is an amazing city and completely different to Glasgow. The hills and Castle are simply stunning. The Christmas markets are also worth going heading to. There are endless great pubs in the Old Town that you can hide in when it’s freezing in winter as well.
