I’d been very excited to head to the Scottish Highlands, mostly because I was convinced we’d find a fairy glen and fairies. We left Glasgow early in the morning, but made a quick-ish stop at Stirling Castle before heading north. It was especially interesting to see, as I’d just finished reading about Mary, Queen of Scots living there for the first five years of her life. I have to say, Scotland does a much better job of bringing their castles to life than England does.
Our castle quota filled for the day, we took the long way to Inverness, and were rewarded with some spectacular views. We were actually greatful for the cloud cover, which filled the drive with fantastic ambience.
