    I have never been attracted that much to the British Islands but that is changing after seeing so many gorgeous posts about Scotland and Ireland. The landscapes are insane. I would want to have my own set of wheels and stop whenever I want.

    I made my first trip to Scotland in May and fell in love with this gorgeous country and its people. I walked the West Highland Way, spent time on Skye and in the far Northwest which is probably the best and most dramatic part of the country. Your photos just make me want to go back. Great post with some beautiful images!
