Scotland - Day Three

The great trip has begun! A very grumpy hubby picked me up from work and off we went. About 30 minutes in the tension of a drama filled morning drained away and the beauty we were driving through became the centrepoint of the drive. We slowed down, started appreciating just how lovely the country is and then wow! Everything went white.

We stopped numerous times just to admire the lovely white landscape. While winding up the lovely little country lanes we came across an old abandoned castle frosted with white. How lucky are we to get this wonderful but unplanned opportunity.

A stop at an 18th century bridge and a long winding road and we arrived at our first night accommodation. It was dark when we arrived so the hotel will have to wait till tomorrow but the room is more than amazing, its a huge country manor room and so damn lovely I cant wait to finally crawl into bed and go to sleep.

Tomorrow is Loch Ness and the Isle of Skye but a very good beginning so far!
