The Scottish Highlands. Part I

After three weeks of absence, I’m back! The first part of my summer holidays is over. It’s the best part of the summer: when my husband and I spend some days or weeks exploring a new place. This year we finally decided to go to Scotland. We’ve been travelling around the country, from Edinburgh to Skye and then the north and east of the country. It’s been a two weeks road trip. It’s been exhausting and incredible. The landscape, the incredibly rich wildlife, the Scottish history and the Scots we’ve met along the journey have made of these holidays an amazing experience.

I’ll probably write a post about Edinburgh, where we started our trip, later. I want to show you now one of the first places we’ve visited in the famous Scottish Highlands: the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. It was the perfect place to begin our journey through the Highlands: lochs, rivers, mountains, dense forests, elusive deers… an impressive scenary that was just a sample of what was waiting for us the next days.
