Scotland: Drive through the highlands

In order to get to the Isle of Skye from Colintraive where we were staying, we had to take a 5 hour drive through the highlands. I had heard that Isle of Skye was the most beautiful place in all of Scotland so I was really hoping the drive would be worth it. Let me just say, I think that the drive was the most beautiful drive I've ever been on. We saw stunning mountain views, saw Loch Lochy which is the most crystal clear lake I've ever seen, and we even got a glimpse of Loch Ness before making it to Skye. The drive was long, but it was totally worth it.

Are you ready to be blown away in pictures? Most of these were taken right around Glencoe. We really wanted to stop there, because has was born in Glencoe...Minnesota, so we had to see the namesake for his birthplace. The town isn't much, but the surround area is stunning.

Wow! What a gorgeous gorgeous place. I've always wanted to go to Scotland, and my fiance's family can trace their roots back there (and beyond to Vikings).. his dad's a bit obsessed with genealogy. Not that I blame him, it's quite fascinating to me too!

Maybe I'll make my way there someday! :)
