Oh Flower of Scotland

Scotland is gorgeous and there is so much left of it that I want to see but here are a few cities we've explored!

Edinburgh - This is the picture perfect city that I envision on postcards. Simply gorgeous. We stepped off the plane, jumped on a bus and went straight to the heart of the city. You can store your luggage at the train station while you explore. While in Edinburgh, you have to visit Princes Street Gardens. If you're lucky, you'll even get to hear piper playing the bagpipes. There is of course, the Edinburgh Castle which is nothing short of gorgeous, but be prepared to pay a pretty penny to enter.

Glasgow - There is no shortage of things to do and see in this city! Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is nothing short of amazing; you could easily spend all day wandering through each room. The Botanical Gardens are a free and beautiful location to explore. There are huge glass houses that include so many different climates, so this Florida gal felt right at home in some of the more humid areas. The Lighthouse, despite it's name, is not actually a lighthouse but when you reach the top you get a great view of the city.

Largs - What a quaint town full of personality. David's grandparents live here and every time we are in this city I get my full of Millionaire Shortbread, tea and all the chip shops someone could ever want. Don't try and eat your fish and chips by the sea though, the seagulls are ruthless and will literally snatch the food right out of your hand. Save the views for after dinner!

The scoop on haggis - My husband, David, is from Scotland and thought that it would be a good idea to tell me what was in it before I ate it. It totally psyched me out but I tried it anyways and it's not half bad! You can have haggis in a variety of different ways - such as deep fried (you can find this in a chip shop) or as fancy as a gorgeously presented haggis with neeps and tatties (turnip and mashed potatoes).

We have move recently been able to visit the Isle of Skye which you can read all about here.

If you have the chance, Scotland is a must see! Happy Traveling!
