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.
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!
the sea at Thurso
Urquhart Castle from a boat on Loch Ness
secrets at Urquhart Castle
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
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 🙂
