Drumnadrochit, Inverness IV63 6XJ, UK
View of Urquart Castle overlooking Loch Ness. Did not see Nessie, but awesome nonetheless!
Save Place
Orkney, UK
The flight into the Orkney Islands was amazing. Many of the neolithic ruins can be seen from the air, dotting the land. I visited several of the sites including Skara Brae, and Maeshowe, but the Ring of Brodgar was the highlight of the sites I...

Stonehaven AB39 2TL, UK
Dunnottar Castle is a dramatic and evocative ruined cliff-top fortress in a truly stunning setting. And just a half hour's drive from Aberdeen, Europe's oil-capital. William Wallace and Mary Queen of Scots graced the Castle with their presence....

Golspie KW10 6SF, UK
The 13th-century estate, Dunrobin Castle, is beautifully situated above a gracious park with formal gardens, overlooking the North Sea, where fabulous falconry performances are staged daily in the gardens.

Elishader, Portree IV51 9JE, UK
We had a few hours before dinner to drive around the perimeter of the Isle of Skye. A short distance south of Staffin, on the east coast of Skye’s Trotternish Peninsula, Kilt Rock, where the falls descend from a 200 foot high sea cliff. The...
Save Place
Dornie, Kyle of Lochalsh IV40 8DX, UK
As we came around the bend on the main tourist route to the Isle of Skye, Eilean Donan Castle majestically came into view. Located on a small tidal island in Loch Duich in the western part of the Highlands, Eilean Donan Castle is probably one of...
Save Place
High St, Edinburgh EH1 1RE, UK
This beautiful cathedral, also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, is located on High Street in Edinburgh. It has beautiful stained glass windows and two memorials.

Stonehaven AB39 2TL, UK
On a cold, rainy morning in Sept, 2010 I hiked the 3km from Stonehaven to Dunnottar Castle. Public transport is available, but you are cheating yourself by not walking. The path to Dunnottar cuts through fields and is well-maintained. As you get...
Save Place
Appin, Portnacroish PA38 4BL, UK
We spent the day driving a rough circle along A82 and adjoining roads as we made our way through Glen Coe in the Western Highlands down to Oban. Fans of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" might recall the final scene taking place at this castle....
Save Place
Breakish, Isle of Skye IV42 8PY, UK
Scotland is not known for its cuisine. And I didn't go to the Isle of Skye looking for one of the best meals I've ever had. But that's the magic of travel, your best memories are the unexpected ones. I actually went to Red Skye trying to escape...
Save Place
Dunoon, UK
After a short drive from Dunoon, Scotland we found Puck's Glen hike in the Argyll National Forest. Like hiking through a mystical fairyland, the trek was both engaging and just challenging enough for our kids.
Save Place
Castle Esplanade, Stirling FK8 1EJ, UK
This castle is huge and the views are ridiculous. The first records dating the castle are from the 12th century. In 1124, King Alexander I died here. The castle was used by him and his successor as an administrative center as well as a residence...
