In my last post I wrote that Mr. D and I visited the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh this weekend. On Sunday we took an arranged tour to the West Highlands (Scotland). It was beautiful scenery, when it did not rain. Enough about the weather, let me share some photos from my favorite stop on the tour, the Inveraray Castle, and its beautiful garden and surroundings! (More outfit photos below)
Does the castle look familiar to you? You might have seen it here! Don’t we all long for the next season of Downton Abbey, despite the tragic event in the end of the last season?
As we were going many hours in a bus, the comfort was important for me, as well as the clothes would keep me warm. So I used several layers, my new favorite scarf, my comfy black stretch jeans from Ann Taylor Loft and my Ecco boots. And surprise surprise a cardigan! If anyone noticed that I wore the same blue cardigan i three outfit photos in a row, before this, please raise your hand!
There is a lot of tours and tour companies to choose between departing from Edinburgh. We finally decided to go with Timberbush Tours on the one-day tour West Highland Lochs, Mountains, and Castles, as we did not want to have to go up extremely early in the morning and spend most of the time in the bus, which we would have had to do if we had chosen for example a Loch Ness tour. It was a good tour, but it was not terrific. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, but I did not feel stuffed with information afterwards, and I wanted to be stuffed with information! The stops that included visits to gift shops was a little bite too long, as they often are at arranged tours. However, if you want to see pretty much of the Scottish nature (which is beautiful) and castles during one day, this is a good tour, and that was our main purpose.
