Hunting for Nessy – Scotland Highlands

While visiting my sister in Edinburgh we decided to do a very touristy thing and take a bus tour to the Scotland highlands in search for the Loch Ness Monster!

Let me first say that Scotland is beautiful and, if given the chance, I would really like to spend more time in the north.  There are people who hike it for weeks – I’m not that adventurous, but a nice road-trip would be lovely.

To be honest, it was a standard bus tour.  We were only able to do a day trip, so it seemed like the most efficient way to do things.

We had some obligatory rest stops at restaurants/gift shops that were hoping to make a little money.  We made a friend named Hamish and heard a lot about the difference between a lake and a loch (which has now slipped my mind).  We spent a lot of time in silence between locations.  But the views along the way were worth the experience.

We took the loch tour, which I was hoping to be a bit more informative than it was.  Given the sheer number of people onboard it was difficult to get as much detail as I would have liked.

Pixie Dust – we got this super touristy photo which was fun.


I am certainly no expert on Scotland.  This is just my short account.  But I did get enough of a taste to want to go back.  I’m not sure when that will be, but I’ll be certain to tell you about it when I do.
