The Scottish Highlands, part 1
I would have to say that if I was forced to pick my favorite part of the trip, it would be the Highlands of Scotland. When I went to Ireland several years back I left thinking that I would never see anything as pretty as the beautiful green rolling hills we encountered there…and then I went to Scotland. The natural beauty of the Glencoe Valley is absolutely breathtaking and will leave you speechless. It’s the type of landscape scene that you think of when you hear “And God created the heavens and the earth”. Beautiful mountains and valleys full of sheep and cattle, ancient rock ruins, and rich, haunted history.
