A Fairytale Feeling In The Scottish Highlands

Lochside, Loch Leven, Scotland

We followed this grassy path around Loch Leven to see a stunning view of the sun setting behind the mountains in the distance. It was a lovely little walk, and completely unexpected. Don’t you find that those are the best moments? The ones we’re not expecting.

The landscape looks a bit mystical to me, it has a fairytale-like quality. But I can’t quite put my finger on why! The colours throughout our trip to Scotland were just incredible. I couldn’t get enough of the yellows, browns and oranges that seemed to be in every direction.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

House, Glen Coe, Scotland

Many things about Scotland were completely unexpected to me. The majestic, simply breathtaking landscape was the biggest surprise. Followed closely by the distinct lack of any pubs along its winding country roads. Whilst driving in England you rarely pass more than 5 miles without seeing a cosy cottage pub. I’m not sure why I thought Scotland would be the same, but it certainly wasn’t!

This shot was taken at Glen Coe in the Scottish Highlands, and the small white house was definitely unexpected. A fantastic location for a home, it’s tough to beat the scenery even if it is a little remote. Having said that I don’t even know if it’s inhabited, I didn’t get close enough for that. I think for now I’d like to keep it a mystery and just imagine what it must be like living with such an incredible landscape on your doorstep.

Has a destination ever taken you completely by surprise? Have you ever seen something unexpected on your travels? Know of any great country pubs in Scotland?! I’d love to hear from you.
