Sheep of Scotland

On Tuesdqay, April 29, 2008, we woke up in Dalkeith and drove north. We drove about 250 miles that day, beginning in Dalkeith, near Edinburgh, and drove north up the east coast, through Aberdeen and then northwest through Inverness and beyond.

I made it a point to stop frequently and snap a few pics of sheep along the way. As was usual with our luck, it rained while we were driving and stopped while we were stretching our legs. It was a great day and a lot of fun driving through this beautiful country.

Note: we started at 'B' and drove to 'A'.

We drove from Loch Lomond to Edinburgh, nearly another hundred miles that day. These are some sheep that enjoy central Scotland.

Scotland Part 6 Southern Highlands

Don't worry, I'll consolidate all the sheep pics into one Posting, but this one's my favorite!

This place was awesome! After 7 or 8 days of changing rooms every night and the mad rush and excitement of not even having a room, this little B&B was a welcome paradise. I can imagine reserving this for a full week and actually relaxing and enjoying a vacation. Nobody ever really wants to relax on their vacations though, it seems. Always in a rush to get something done we've never done before. Here's some free advertising for you Lenny, The Baroney House Rocks!

Taking the Golf back was a little heartbreaking for me. It was only halfway through my journey, but my parents were heading home the next day and and I was continuing on to Dublin. We had a lot of good times in that car. I would seriously consider buying one back home. We put about 800 miles on the "correct side of the road" as they like to put it, and it was a big part of our trip. But what was probably the most valuable material item was my Garmin Nuvi. Oh what would we have done without that machine?
The Gatwick Express into Victoria Station.

The walk through the park to find the last hotel.

Safe journey home!
