Day 16 – Glasgow, Traquair House and Hadrian’s Wall

Day 16 – Glasgow, Traquair House and Hadrian’s Wall

Well, the weather just isn’t giving us a break this week! It’s almost freezing and raining non stop. Only a 20% chance tomorrow with a temp of 45… So here’s hoping we can get out and explore without being miserable and cold! We started this morning is Glasgow. Meh. I didn’t really feel like there was anything major I had to see or do. It’s a decent city…but sort of like Belfast- a little gritty, a little dirty, a little…

Day 15 – Oban to Glasgow

Today we unknowingly went to the Rockies! Haha Not really but I was quite surprised to find myself in the snowy caps of the Arrochar Alps.

Day 12 – The Highlands

Day 12 – The Highlands

Sorry for the delay. No interwebs last night. We can’t live in Scotland. They have terrible internets. Lol Kegan is calling it “free range wifi”- if you find it and can catch it, you can use it. Haha Today was a day of great Landscapes as we made our way across the highlands to the Isle of Skye. Sorry if the photos are all jumbled… You can figure out where they go. No idea why this keeps happening. Our first…
