Recently, I was walking through Edinburgh when this happened.

I still have a lot to share about my travels in Scotland, but I didn’t want too much time to pass before posting about some more topical happenings.

This huge Scottish island brings a lot to the tourist table, including Faerie mounds and a herd of naughty cows.

An Airbnb host suggested a side trip to this fishing town in the Scottish Highlands. What a great day by — and on — the sea!

A steam train choo-chooing over a famous viaduct. I’m riding the Scottish rails, Harry Potter style!

A spectacular train ride, my first “peaty” whisky and a visit to a sacred place.

My second coach tour of the Scottish Highlands makes a stop at the famous Loch Ness. Let’s go for a boat ride!

As I head further north in Scotland, I’m going to be leaving something near and dear behind.

A dog, a stranger, and a conversation about adventure that I’ll remember for a long time.
