Seeing the Fairy Pools on Isle of Skye was #1 on my Scottish bucket list when I moved over here. A couple other things high on my list of things to see were Culloden and the Eileen Donan Castle. During my mid-trimester break, I was able to cross all three of things off my bucket list. Two friends joined me for a three-day bus tour traveling from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye.
Back in the day, a long, long time ago, Romans tried to conquer Britain to prove they were strong and mighty.
I’ve lived in Edinburgh for more than two months now. I can’t believe how fast it’s all going. In some ways, things still feel very new and strange, but mostly I think I’ve settled into my life abroad. Here’s my recap of my time here so far.
I spent my weekend with the Napier University Kayak Club up in the Scottish Highlands on their Freshers Weekender trip. It was a lot of fun. We stayed about 20 miles north of Fort William in the Great Glen Hostel, a cool little spot located in South Laggan.
After class on Wednesday, I was feeling pretty restless, so I decided to go visit Holyrood Park and finally climb Arthur’s Seat. The top boasts one of the best views you can get of the city.
Saturday, I took a day tour to the Lake District.
Hairy Coos are my favorite.
