You know what I love most about Scotland? The fact that I can actually see myself living here. I can clearly picture an older version of me strolling along Princess street in Edinburgh, arms full of my purchases from Primark. Or heavily clothed, hiking up and around Glen Nevis. There’s just so much that this country has to offer, and I want it all. Scotland is a mystical wonderland that I can’t help but return to.
I first visited Scotland right after my high school graduation, with my best friend’s family. We spent a lovely month hiking and sight see-ing through the highlands; even staying in a cottage right across from Castle Tioram. I loved that trip so much. Coming back just made the memories even sweeter.
Edinburgh is my home away from home, away from home. The sprawling parks, connected to a massive city center. There’s something for everyone here. I just love Scotland so much.
This scene from Brave accurately portrays my feelings towards this beautiful country…
Instead of rambling for days, here are the top five reason why I love Scotland.
1. The Scenery. There are only a few places on Earth that get my heart beating faster than the highlands.
4. My best friend is Scottish and I love her, so of course I love Scotland.
This is only Part 1 of my 2 Part Scotland adventure. Stay tuned.
