Hi there, friends!
I am finally back from my amazing trip to Germany!! I had the best time and can’t wait to share my adventures with you. But for now, here’s the third and final installment of my trip to Scotland! (part one and part two)
Sunday began bright and early with breakfast at the hostel and packing. We left right around 8:30 am for Culloden Battlefield which was really close by. We made a few stops along the way for pictures by Loch Nest. Loch Ness is huge and beautiful and I wish that we would have had a little more time to explore it.
I was really interested in Culloden battlefield but unfortunately it started down pouring right after we got there and we weren’t really able to enjoy most of it. I don’t think I have ever been that soaked in my whole life! We wandered around the battlefield a bit and paid our respects to the soldiers that lost their lives and are buried in mass graves throughout the property.
After freezing to death in the pouring rain we returned to the bus and headed to lunch in Pitlochry. Diana accidentally spilled her coffee on me during the ride which helped warm me up a bit! 😉 After changing, we headed to a small bakery to grab lunch and then did some shopping.
Our next stop was a forest called Hermitage. Birnam Wood in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” was inspired by this forest. We took a nice walk through the woods with waterfalls and the salmon leap. It rained again so we walked quickly but I still really enjoyed the scenery.
After our walk we all piled back into the bus and headed back to Edinburgh to catch the train to London. I was extremely tired but still really sad that it was already time to go home. This trip went by so fast but I had an amazing time. I hope that one day I will be able to go back to Scotland!
Thanks again for reading! I am currently writing posts about Paris and Germany so stay tuned!
