Anne and I have spent two days in the HIghlands, and we love it here. We will return someday, when we can spend more time and do more things.
I took about 5000000000000 pictures, but the Internet is slow and wonky where I am, so I can’t upload them at full resolution. Here’s a few of them, resized:
This is Urquhart Castle, which is on the shore of Loch Ness. That ruined tower has been ruined longer than my country has existed.
That’s Loch Ness, as seen through an ancient window in the castle.
This is Eilean Donan, which is famous for being in many movies including Highlander. I’d list the others, but there can be only one.
We didn’t go into this one, but we did have tea in their little restaurant and it was awesome.
There really are sheep everywhere in the Highlands, and no matter how much I try to befriend them, they aren’t having it. I’m kind of glad they always run away when I get about 30 feet from them, though, because there aren’t many things in the world as funny as watching sheep run, with their stupid little legs.
My incredibly small sample size of about a dozen people indicates that everyone here is incredibly kind, and they don’t make fun of my accent.
