We visited on a last minute whim that has turned out so well !
We walked around Loch Lomond saw Hill House & and soaked up the heatwave
on Helensburgh seafront, climbed Dumbarton Castle.
We went to Glencoe, Loch Ness , Glenfinnan Viaduct, Edinburgh(Victoria Street, Greyfriars, Palace and the Castle )
Glasgow ( Botanical Gardens, Cathedral and Necropolis ). It was jam packed and amazing !

Top 3
Glenfinnan Viaduct ( Hogwarts Express)

This house has been great, couldn’t be more happy with it.

Best wishes
