Traveling with my Mom!

Hi everyone!

For the past week I have been travelling around Scotland with my Mom and MaryKate having an outrageous time! My darling mother has never been out of the country before so this has been super exciting for me to be able to show her around a bit.

On our first day we took things easy and did some sight seeing around Stirling. Mom got to see her first castle and we ended the day at the Curly Coo Pub with some delicious Thistly Cross Ciders.

The next day was an amazing bus tour of the Highlands that blew my Mom’s mind. Excuse the overload of pictures from Glen Coe.

Tuesday was a quick trip to St. Andrews where we had a lovely picnic by the sea and then ventured to the castle and cathedral.

Wednesday was the worst weather day we had so it was only logical that we decided to go to the ruined Tantallon Castle. I got some great shots of Mom on top of the turret.

Thursday was our day of rest and light packing. Then Friday we ventured into Edinburgh for one last adventure. We ended the day with the last supper for our little group and I ended up sobbing in the streets of the ancient city as we said goodbye and went our separate ways.

All in all it was an amazing week with my Mm and I and so glad she was able to come. That is all for now and I will be back in the states soon!
