Dates of these adventures: June 29- July 2, 2013
I jumped for joy when I found out that our friends, Lee and Justin, were coming to visit us in Scotland! James and I chose all of our favourite places and planned out four full days of Scottish adventures for the four of us.
We started out at Dunnottar Castle, admiring the beautifully dramatic, ruined castle.
Photoshoot on the beach near Dunnottar
The Bay Fish and Chips in Stonehaven
They had to try their first savoury Scottish pie as well!
Puffins at Fowlsheugh
University of Aberdeen
Glenfiddich Distillery Tour
Glenlivet Distillery Tour
St Andrews Castle
Learning about the Sinclair tartan
St Andrews Cathedral ruins and cemetery
St Andrews Golf Course
My favourite hot chocolate at The Elephant House in Edinburgh
The Scotch Whisky Experience is definitely a place to visit whilst in Edinburgh! Instead of going on the tour, we quite like to go down to Amber, the restaurant downstairs, for a whisky flight learning experience and really good Scottish food. During your whisky tasting, the bartenders teach you how Scotland's diverse landscapes and climate affect Scotch.
Haggis, neeps and tatties, cullen skink, smoked salmon, and lamb stovies
Cup, my favourite tea salon in Aberdeen
Burn O' Vat
Lee and Justin, thank you for traveling to visit us and letting us introduce you to Scotland! James and I absolutely loved every minute of your visit!
