Surreal is the best and only way to describe it.

The friendships made and sights seen as we hiked, biked and rode a train west through the highlands to the Isle of Skye and then east to Aviemore for a most legend’ry wedding were some of the most memorable of life. I was only there for just under two weeks but it felt entirely like home.

( We only left because Grace was causing a shortage of malt vinegar, and I’d managed to break the country’s internet. )

The following 3,940,283 pictures are a smidge of our adventures through Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fort William, biking around Glen Nevis, the Harry Potter bridge, Mallaig, seal-watching ferry to Skye, Portree, hiking the Old Man of Storr, Kyle of Lochalsh, Inverness, Aviemore and back to Edinburgh.

Looking back leaves me in a happy state of incredulity, and if you’d ever considered visiting Scotland I hope this convinces you.

    Oh Rebekah! These are all fantastic, and I actually happen to know Nathan (met him once ;), from PHC right? All the sights, the books, the countryside, the oldness, all makes me want to travel to Scotland so bad. Thank you for the share!
