SCOTLAND MY HOMELAND TAKE TWO……




That day we went to the Isle of Skye and made a stop in Portree…that was fun as we’ve been there before….my Dad wanted to eat haggis so he left us and found a restaurant, we were all starving;)
Mum and I bought pasta salad and bread and went shopping.
Then we drove to Dunvegan Castle which is one of my favourites…it is so amazing and wonderful and I could spend hours in there.


Me and Dad at Dunvegan


I called Sarah that evening to tell her that we were going to Loch Ness the next day, and this is part of the conversation:

Sarah; ummm, Annette…..
Me ; Yes???
Sarah; I actually heard something….
Me ; What did your hear??
Sarah; I heard, that when you go to see Nessie, if you switch on your camera with the flash, she comes up, because she wants to get photographed.
Me ; Oh, I’ll be sure to do that then.


The next day we went to see Eileen Donan Castle. It was very beautiful and I’ve seen it twice before but never been inside. We had a guided tour and that was great.
The movie "Highlander" was filmed there, so I felt very historic;)

We then went to Fort Augustus for a break and then to Loch Ness to see Nessie;)

The last stop was Inverness where our hotel was.
There was another sightseeing there, but we passed and went and took a look at the town ourselves.


Mum and I at the monument in Inverness


Then we had dinner and off to bed;)

We had a couple of hours in Inverness the next morning, so Mum, Dad and I went to St. Andrews Church.

Inside there was a Baptize fund, that was an exact replica of one the Danish artist Thorvaldsen had made for a Danish church in 1820.


Mum and the baptize fond


Even though we’re not Catholics the three of us lit a candle in the church


We then left Inverness to go to Culloden - which we didn’t have time for due to peoples eating habits!!! I got angry.
We then ended up at Glen Fiddich Distillery, but we didn’t went in. we sat in the sun and took some pictures.

We had another stop before our hotel at a shopping mall at Queens View and Mum and I both bought hats;)
