Trip to Scotland

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

As promised, here's a few pics from our trip to Scotland! We visited some great castles, including this one in Linlithgow. There were a lot of steps to the top! But it was worth it for the view.

It was a massive place with lots to explore, Isabelle loved all the tunnels and secret passages, we nearly got lost a few times!

We were lucky with the weather while we were in Scotland, it was mild and we only had a few showers. So we managed to have a few picnics while we were there!

There was an amazing fountain in the main courtyard of the castle covered in beautiful sculptures, such beautiful details!

Apart from the castles we visited we managed to squeeze in a trip to the zoo, where Isabelle got to hand feed some ring-tailed lemurs, definitely the highlight of her trip!

One of my favourite places was the Scottish Owl Centre, the owls were beautiful and I got some lovely photos! I can't wait to paint them!

There were over 120 owls in the centre, one of the largest collections in the world. There was also a flight display which was really great!

I fell in love with this big-eyed fellow, he was in the indoor rainforest section, which was really cool! Look at those feathers!

We visited some beautiful forests and parks and managed to see some of the Scottish Highland Cows! They were huge!

Pollok Park and House is definitely worth a visit if you love gardens. And we had a beautiful lunch there too!

I hope you enjoyed a few of my pics from Scotland, we really had a great time and I can't wait to go back again some time. There's so much to see and do there and it's quite like Ireland! : )


  1. I've always wanted to go to Scotland!! The plaids, the bagpipes and the castles!! Thanks for the lovely pictures: How amazing to live in a land where there are such old buildings (In Calif, not so much!!). And I can't wait to see your owl pictures!! :-) Have a great weekend! Hugs, H
