Thurso / John O Groats / Inverness / Loch Ness / Perth

Travelling north in Scotland in the middle of January might sound like a stupid idea. We’d be exposed to bad weather, storm, rain and snow.

To put it short: we had to face all of that, but what we got in exchange was worth it!

Maybe I’ll come up with another blog to write about all the lovely people we met, but for now, just some pictures… enjoy!

And this are the places we visited:

my favourite picture – the Stacks of Duncansby.

some horses jumping around… on the way to the lighthouse you’ll see further down.

beautiful roundabout…

psychodelic sheep

sheep staring at us. we were the only humans…

in the middle of nowhere

the lighthouse at the most northern part of the scottish mainland

me walking over the edge of the world

Stacks of Duncansby and some really high cliffs

some kind of Fjord – standing on the edge of it is scary… especially during a storm….

we named them the two apostels… and the weather was not as it looks on the picutre – but stormy and rainy and snowing….

I kinda fell in love with them!

even sheep queue!!!

sheep and nothing else, an awesome place!

John O Groats

small and lonely houses in John O Groats

the coast of Thurso.

we even saw a surfer walking by… the waves were huge!

Urquhart Castle – also beautiful in the winter

beautiful Inverness at night

Perth and the river…finally, after an unexpected 1h walk from the park and ride station to the city centre!

in the back you can see the Highlands

Perth

beautiful stone bridge in Perth

last but not least: the smallest fire station I ever saw in my life….

That’s it for now! Hope you liked the pictures 🙂
