Scotland road trip
In 2014 we didn’t travel to any exotic destination.
I wouldn’t make a good globetrotter anyway – being a nervous flyer I am not going to fly anywhere if it’s for less than 2 weeks.
Also, we get attached to places we visit and people we meet so we prefer to visit them again rather than travel somewhere new. V. started school now while I am working a lot during the summer so it’s difficult to leave for longer trips.
I bought a car though – we called it Elsa ( inspired by Frozen the movie ) and we’ve been travelling in Scotland discovering a lot of amazing places here.
A few photos from our road trips around Scotland, I will try to write more soon 🙂
Clachtoll Beach Campsite, Sutherland – stunning area in the north west of Scotland. Crystal blue waters and sandy beach make it look like somewhere in the Caribbean. This part of Scotland is a part of the famous NC500 route. My other recommend place is Achmelvich Beach, around 15 minutes away from Clachtoll.
Rothiemurchus, Cairngorms National Park – I love Aviemore and the nearby estate of Rothiemurchus. We stayed on the campsite in the woodland and it was extremely peaceful. During the day there is plenty to explore, like Loch Morlich or Loch an Eilein.
Ullapool – a village in the northern Scotland. Good for a stopover or to catch a ferry to the Isle of Lewis. Plus you can get great food from the Seafood Shack!
Plockton, Jewel of the Highlands – lovely little village in the Highlands overlooking Loch Carron.
Glencoe – we have returned to the Red Squirrel a few times, it is always a good holiday!
Isle of Arran – small island off the west coast, there is so much to do there
Canary Islands in the winter
Also, last December we went back to Gran Canaria to volunteer in the cave hostel. Christmas in the mountains was a magic experience.
As you can see there is so much to explore in Scotland, it is an amazing country for road trips. I am looking forward to explore other islands next year and possibly going back to the Canaries.
