Finally, the weekend was here! This trip was amazing in so many ways. Can’t believe I won this!
We depatured from Edinburgh at 08.30 in the morning with the Haggis-bus with 27 other people and our own guide for the trip named “Paddy”. He called the rainy weather for liquid sunshine and wanted us to scream “AYE” as pirates when he called our name. Funny guy.
The first day was a lot of driving, but also a lot of stops at different places to take some photos. I must say, what a pretty country this is. The nature was just amazing, even with all the rain and fog!
We stopped at the Commando Memorial Area of remembrance, which made a really strong impression. Young men in their twenties, same age as myself, who died fighting in Afghanistan,. Some of the memorials were dated the 80’s, while some others were as new as 2012…
After driving the whole day with plenty of amazing stops, we finally arrived at Inverness and Loch Ness where we stayed at a hostel for the first night.
Part two coming up!
