Scotland: Edinburgh and Loch Lomond

For the last 4 days, I have been enjoying the beautiful land of the Scots.

My first night was spent in Edinburgh. we visited the castle, ate at grassmarket square, climbed Arthur’s seat, took a tour of parliament before finishing it all off with a city bus tour.

We didn’t go inside the castle and instead just walked around and visited the gift shop. We were all too hungry to stay in the castle for more than 10 minutes. I plan on visiting the castle when I return to Edinburgh.

The view from Arthur’s Seat was phenomenal. It was worth the climb, and the cold wind.

The city of Edinburgh was very beautiful and although I only spent 1 night there, I felt that I saw most of the things that I wanted to see.


We then went to Loch Lomond for 2 nights and stayed in a castle.

It was beautiful in the day but very very creepy at night time. Especially since there was no other properties in the area. We were completely surrounded by fields.

We then spent a day exploring and climbing the beautiful Ben Lomond. The climb was harder than Arthur’s feet and after 40 minutes I was ready to quit and return to the car.

Despite my laziness the view was worth it!

Top 3 things I enjoyed the most about my trip:

  1. The peace and quiet at our castle in Loch Lomond. It was lovely going to bed and hearing birds in the sky instead of drunk young people.
  2. How considerate Scottish drivers were compared to the ones in London. Everyone in Scotland seemed so polite and relaxed whilst driving, no road rage.
  3. Krispy Kreme doughnuts at the airport! I have been craving Krispy Kreme’s for over 3 weeks and I was finally able to buy some (4) at the airport. Do I regret eating so many doughnuts? No! Would I do it again? No! (To the doughnuts not to Scotland).

Thank You for reading.
