Falling in love with Scotland

Friday 19 February 2021

EDINBURGH CITY

Edinburgh , scotland

I landed in Edinburgh after a long journey and thought of resting. But by the time I reached the hotel, stepping out of the car, I felt my lungs are charged and I am energised. I just checked in and out on the streets I was.  The hilly capital left me feeling nostalgic. The city is a mix of medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. After the whisky trail, I loved watching Military Tattoo at the Castle. The Band in recognition of my Indian roots, played a Bollywood number.

HIGHLAND SAFARI

View of the Highlands in Scotland

Where I caught glimpse of European Bison, Red Deer, Bukhara Deer, Elk, Przewalski's Horses, Vicuna and wild birds that have naturally taken up residence in the Park.

PITLOCHRY

Pitlochry, heart of Scotland

I loved being in the heart of Scotland with clear sparkling air, beautiful scenery, rich clan history, fine food, plenty of space and lots to see and do. It is mainly a holiday destination, which caters for the holiday maker year round. It is one of the most Beautiful and vibrant places to visit in Scotland.

INVERNESS

Inverness city in Scotland

Inverness is a city on Scotland’s northeast coast, where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth. It's the largest city and the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands. Its Old Town features 19th-century Inverness Cathedral, the mostly 18th-century Old High Church and an indoor Victorian Market selling food, clothing and crafts.

LOCH NESS

Urquhart Castle, Scotland

I just fell for the beauty of loch located near Inverness is shrouded in mystery. Stories of a large monster living deep beneath the dark expanses of Loch Ness have going around since ages. Loch Ness contains more water than all the lakes of England and Wales combined.

Visit to the Loch Ness visitor centre is a must. I will cherish my experience of stunning views of Loch Ness and the Scottish Highlands on a 1-hour boat cruise from Clansman Harbour to Urquhart Castle and back.
