Romancing the Highlands

I'll be honest.  I'm a sucker for romance.  Most of you have been with me long enough to have figured that out long ago, maybe even before I did.  If its soft and dreamy, misty and romantic, ruined and ghostly I can find the story in that immediately and the narrator in my head starts to spin a tale.  So where do I go to feed my romantic soul you ask?  Scotland, of course.  Is there any spot on earth better suited to romance?  There's the breath taking landscapes, the history steeped in drama, soft, cold, misty days perfect contemplation.  I'm headed back in a week or so for my regular fill up.  My dear friends Shannon and Mario at Scottish Dream Tours  are helping me "feed the need" again this year.  I can't wait to see what we see.  Last year one of the stops was the sigh worthy Dunnottar Castle you can see at the top of the page.  I spent the time between trips being sustained by having my favorite novel, Outlander, realized as a television series on Starz network.  How thrilling to see these characters come to life as well as seeing Scotland so beautifully captured.  If the stars align, I might even come across a cast member or shooting location on this trip.  But you know, just being able to spend time in the magical, mystical, mist filled land that is Scotland will be enough.  Stay tuned my friend.  I plan to share images as I go along, wifi allowing.  You'll be able to follow along here, on Instagram and my Facebook page. All are linked on my site
I hope you are ready for another adventure!
All the best,
