Save Place
Fort William, UK
What was expected to be the low point of a two day getaway at the foot of Ben Nevis turned out to be one of the more beautiful experiences of my life so far. The four hour train ride between Glasgow and Fort William takes you between snow-capped...

Dornie, Kyle of Lochalsh IV40 8DX, UK

River Sligachan, Isle of Skye, UK

Northern Europe
One of my stops when I went backpacking with my sister in June 2012. Scotland was beautiful and friendly, but whether there really is a monster in this lake...we don't know ;)
