REVIEW – Winter day trip from Edinburgh

By Miss Edinburgh

As much as I love Edinburgh, there’s nothing like getting out of town for the day and up to 70mph on the motorway before hitting the windy roads of Scotland.  Now that the sun is rising earlier and we get more daylight – you can really cover a lot of miles in one day.

Today I headed up towards Glencoe when the sun had just risen, giving excellent light on the beautiful Buachaille Etive Mor, where I couldn’t have timed it better with a wild deer strolling past.

I love to take photos of highland cows and for some reason today, they seemed to be everywhere – fields and fields of them.

Lochs were frozen over, the sun was shining in the blue sky and I had a wonderful day soaking up my stunning country in all its’ glory.  The photos are unedited.

We drove a total of 300 miles in one day, which was about seven hours of driving over an eleven hour period .  We did stop for lunch and afternoon tea along the way – as well as all the photo stops.
