Talking Trip to Scotland (Many Pics!)

From a little while back but you all tend to like my pictures so I wanted to share! Went to Scotland during the summer and was blown away by the character of the landscape, cities, and people. The dramatic landscapes and weather made for incredible lore and a general demeanor that I found incredibly captivating. Every heal, peak, and jagged rock had a story about its creation. The cities hide away scotch societies and miniature restaurants. And the people had enough stories and tales of their own about encounters with faeries (troublesome creatures they believe live in the highlands) to last for months. Unexpectedly, the food was also to die for, ate much more than my fair share during our stay. Would love to go back one day, but enough talk, here are the pics!

Thanks! I'm not much of a golfer and sadly didn't get to experience any of their courses.

wow, what a brilliant trip! thanks for taking the time to share all those pictures. regarding the weather, it's good to remember that Scotland is on latitude equal to Hudsons Bay, and just a few klicks south of the tip of Greenland.

Thanks! The weather changes frequently throughout the day. From 11am-noon it might be bright and sunny, and then noon-1pm absolutely pouring, then back to sun afterwards. We got caught in a gnarly 5hr downpour during an outdoor photography tour lol. Gave up trying to be dry pretty quickly and just embraced the wetness.
