Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | Leave a comment

I’ve written so many articles about my love for Glasgow on here and it’s a city I never tire of exploring and seeing from new angles. Imagine how excited I was when that angle was to be 127 metres off the ground overlooking the entire city!

Glasgow, the nearest city to my little village, has always been somewhere I’ve loved exploring. I cringe when visitors to Scotland only go to Edinburgh and miss out on all the great things Glasgow has to offer.

It’s no secret that everywhere looks better in the sunshine, and Scotland is no exception to this rule. Scotland is a breathtakingly beautiful country even on a grey, rainy day (we get those too often in Scotland!) but add some golden sunshine and blue skies and it’s undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous places on the planet. I know as a native Scot I’m totally biased but I hope my pictures can help convince you that I’m not utterly deluded…

Scenes from a Scottish Road Trip

Posted on by Emma Gray in Scotland, Travel Tales | 4 Comments

Any of you lovely people who are regular readers here will know I’m exceedingly, over-enthusiastically, desperately in love with my home country of Scotland. I think it’s one of the best in the entire world and always love an opportunity to explore it further as there’s just so many amazing places that I haven’t seen yet.

I recently returned from a wonderful three day road trip that saw us ambling through the west of Scotland’s countryside, past lochs, through valleys and over hills. Scotland is just so darn photogenic and I found myself wanting to stop the car every 10 minutes or so because of a beautiful view I’d seen and wanted to capture. How often do you get to say that about a country?!
