Scotland is a place that I still have not been able to go to! I have always dreamed of visiting Scotland, but somehow it has consistently slipped through the cracks. Thankfully, I am about to rectify this mistake as my husband and I are currently planning our first trip there for later this year. I seriously can’t wait!
Even though Scotland can often be overcast, the lack of sun doesn’t do anything to take away the allure. Supposedly the landscapes alone make it worth the trip. I have heard them described as awe-inspiring, powerful, and even spiritual. The country’s crumbling ruins interspersed throughout the landscapes truly move travelers (Um, yes please).
I think these photos speak for themselves.
Side note – Have any of you men been there? Or girls had husbands/boyfriends that went? Thankfully my husband is willing to go, but Scotland is NOT his first choice.
