Day three of #myscottishroadtrip and I'm already losing track of what day of the week it is?! 🙈😂 Apologies for the video story bombardment, well photo story bombardment! 🙄 It's been a full day of exploring! I drove up #bealachnaba (Not a drive for the faint hearted!! 😱😂) and down to #Applecross then took the coastal route past this Insta famous place to #torridon before making my way to my base in Uig on the #isleofskye I quickly popped up to the Fairy Glen, which is literally 5 minutes away and then down the road to the Rha waterfall for good measure! Now it's time to recharge the batteries for day four!
On Friday, I took advantage of the gorgeous weather, threw down my books for the day, and got into the Pentlands for the first time. I only had to share these seemingly endless hills with a handful of people. Looooove.
Kilmory Knap Chapel, a small church in the Scottish Highlands was built in the late 1200s. Inside what remains of the simple structure you will find 36 carved stones, including several dating back before 1000 AD. The West Highland gravestones that feature images of knights with swords date between the 1300s and mid 1500s. More photos to come!
Went on a hike along the Borders Abbeys Way since we have been having such beautiful weather!
This is Dryburgh Abbey, established in 1150 and home to the Premonstratensian order of canons, who lived an austere life but still devoted themselves to pastoral ministry as well - they were not monks, but preachers.
The abbey has seen many attacks, including one in 1322 when, after ringing its bells to announce the retreat of the English army, Edward II made his soldiers turn back just to set fire to the abbey.
It is now a very peaceful place and is also the burial place of Sir Walter Scott and his family.
Hey there! This is Ellie (@elliecutajar) and Neža (@neznaneza) here. We are two researchers who have been living in, and exploring, Scotland for the past two years. Whenever we can get the time, we can think of no better way to unwind than to drive through Scotland’s beautiful landscapes to a new destination.
We are so delighted to be taking over @drivescotland for the next few days, and we hope our images from a recent trip to Mull will give you a little taste of what an experience it is to drive along a landscape where every turn brings with it new surprises!
On our way up from Glasgow to Oban, we stopped for a break to mark out some of the locations we wanted to visit on the Isle of Mull with a view of the old railway line to Killin. Look out for the parking place just off the road where you can stop for a few snaps!
