We went on our first road trip as a family in 2011, all the way from Cornwall to Scotland. We didn’t go straight to our destination though, we stopped at different places to stay with close friends in Bristol and Birmingham. Then we visited Chesire and the Lake District before heading to stay for ten days in a cute and cosy log cabin by the woods near the spectacular Loch Awe in Scotland.
What do I remember about the place? As expected, it rained a lot. But the landscape was absolutely stunning! It’s been more than two years now since we last visited and I’m still in love with the breathtaking scenery of Scotland. We hope to visit again soon.
This photo was taken in the chapel of Dunstaffnage Castle near Oban, both the castle and chapel dates back to the 13th century. Can you spot the Cornish gnome, though really, she should be called a Devononian gnome, since she was born in Exeter, my husband though is adamant that she is Cornish. Little T was about thirteen months old then.
I remember that day very well. We went to see Oban for the first time and then it started raining. On our way back to our house by the woods, it suddenly stopped! So we decided to make a detour and visit the historical ruin and I’m glad we did because the place is a must-visit when in the area. I prefer visiting crumbling ruins than restored and recreated ones. For me there is more romance and mystery than a rehabilitated one, don’t you agree?
