A Farewell to Scotland

Some final favourite memories of Scotland:

Visiting Moffat, and also eating haggis there
(Or at least, I nibbled gingerly while Adam did his Scottish heritage proud by eating all of his serving.)

The Loch Ness
(Although slightly saddened by lack of monster-sighting) 

And other awesome Scottish things like Haggis-flavoured chips and Red Squirrels!!!!!!!

Having a fun, relaxed Christmas in Inverness at the bothy, surrounded by the stunning Moray Firth

(That's not the bothy. That was some dilapidated thing in the garden)

Spending Hogmanay/New Year in Edinburgh

And finally, the beautiful scenery:

I think we were both surprised by how beautiful and how welcoming Scotland was. The weather was cold, but we did get a fair bit of sunshine in with the wind and rain; the people were friendly, and those accents are delightful; and the scenery was nothing less than stunning. We loved it all, and as we drove home we agreed that we'd visit Scotland again in a heartbeat. For me, Scotland has been my favourite holiday of all our OE - there is just something magical about that country.
