Beautiful Scotland

My son and his girlfriend are nearing the end of the North 500 tour and have been posting photos on FB of the fantastic scenery etc. Salmon jumping at the Falls of Shin, Dunrobin Castle, Gelnmorangie Distillery (hope they picked up some samples for me), a Stag on the hillside and Whale and Dolphin watching at Gairloch and much more with lakes (?Lochs) , beaches and hills.

The weather did not allow them to have the roof down for much of the time. There are not many places in the world with such a range of experiences and all this is on our doorstep (give or take a few hours :thumbs_up:).

The Scottish tourist board seems to, finally, have got its act together. :yes:

I know that Scotland is beautiful. It's basically UK's Transylvania. I just have this feeling that many people there chose to travel abroad (where it's warm and sunny) then in such places. I could be wrong though....

I understand that you get sick and tired of mist and rain but... Surely you have to find a place, every now and then, where it doesn't rain, right ? :laugh:

The last time we went on a beach holiday we decided enough was enough. It was an all inclusive which seems to attract the biggest scrotes in Britain. 

Since getting our dog 4 years ago we've only been abroad twice. To Ypres and Paris. 

Love holidaying in the UK, mostly for walking.The Yorkshire Dales and Lake District are both beautiful and are both near which is ideal because neither of us likes walking. 

Had some belting holidays in Scotland as a kid but didn't appreciate them at the time. 

Kenmore, Nairn and the Isle of Skyle In particular.

I like the rain so unlike others I don't flock wherever it's sunny and hot. :biggrin:

Scotland looks like my kind of place to holiday. :thumbsup:

Went to Portsonachan once during the school holidays and it rained for the full 2 weeks but the holidays in Kenmore and Nairn were sunshine all the way.

Unfortunately you are spot on .My wife and I jet off at least twice a year. I live in a cracking part of the country northwest and am well aware that I haven't seen enough of it .I do drive to fort William and Glen Coe occasionally.
