This is day two of our trip. The tour started and ended in Glasgow, covering two national parks, numerous lochs, and plenty of charming towns and cosy villages along the way. This route took us through some of the country's most breath-taking scenery in the highlands to the northeast coast, in Inverness, and the west coast, in Mallaig.

Scotland is home to some stunning, untouched countryside: dramatic mountains, deep lochs, steep sea cliffs, and wonderfully fluffy highland cows. And what is a better way to experience all of it than touring these rugged landscapes by car? Without much hesitation, myself and a friend of mine decided to take on a self-guided driving tour of this beautiful country.
Scotland has always evoked vivid images of raw nature, rich culture, and cosy villages. One place, however, would stand out - Edinburgh's charm is second to none. The city's allure is in wandering the historical streets and closes, popping into its obscure pubs, and discovering hidden gems. The proximity to the sea and the dramatic highlands also adds to the overall attractiveness. No wonder it served as inspiration (and partly backdrop) for the magical world of Harry Potter!
London is one of these places where, regardless of how much time you have on your hands, there is always something to do, see or try. This is a recap of my week in town in October 2014, which involved a biscuit challenge, an ale festival, and everything in between.
