Scottish highlights trip 2018
The last time I visited Scotland was some 50 years ago after passing my test and driving there from Wales in my Ford Anglia. I visited a number of places including Stirling the Isle of Arran and most of the Highlands including Aviemore. Unfortunately on my trip I was stricken with a serious flu bug which put me in bed for several days. But I will always remember the care and hospitality I received from my landlady. I am planning to visit Edinburgh next year and also Loch Lomond, Glen Coe, making my way to Skye for a weeks stay. I then plan to return by a different route South through the Highlands towards Perth and return South through Northumberland. I was looking for advice on interesting places to visit on the way that I would otherwise miss. By experience it is easy to miss places which would only take a slight detour. I am especially interested in finding lovely Scottish lochs as I am a keen watercolourist.
