Visiting Scotland in August was nice but I’m dying to go back and explore other parts of the island in a different season… say fall. Since returning, I think I’ve started following every type of Scottish photographer and travel site on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I can’t get enough photos! Fall looked absolutely gorgeous especially with the sighting of the Northern Lights (bucket list item!) back in October!
Day 3 of my Scottish Highlands Tour took us from Inverness up to the Isle of Skye (my favorite) where I finally got to see the great Loch Ness! No Nessie sightings on this trip though! Maybe next time. Loch Ness really is a beautiful body of water… It’s 1 mile wide and 23 miles long.
After a quick stop at Loch Ness it was on to the hidden Divach Falls for a short hike and a photo op of a large waterfall! From there it was on to Fort Augustus for lunch. I saw my first canal locking system, explored the town and saw a different side of Loch Ness. Our afternoon also consisted of a stop at the beautiful Eilean Donan Castle. I just loved the moodiness of the clouds the day we visited. Unfortunately they also brought rain so our final stop in Plockton was a little less pleasant in rain and wind.
Enjoy my photos and stay tuned for Days 4 and 5 and all of London! Cheers!
