Well, friends, another Scottish adventure has come to a close. I’m home.
It’s 4:45 in the morning as I begin to write this. My body, however, thinks it’s 9:45 and that Mr. C and I should be loading up the car for a day of exploration. With our tummy’s full of Scottish bacon, eggs, and coffee, we would have been all fueled up for a long day of hikes, history, and miles upon miles of some of the most breathtaking scenery on God’s earth.
Being home is bittersweet. I missed my dogs terribly and there is something to be said for getting back into the “regular” routine of things, I guess. But oh how my heart hurt when those airplane wheels began to roll.
For this two week trip, Mr. C and I rented an adorable little cabin ten miles from the city of Inverness, just outside of the very small rural village of Farr.
Owned by Scott Macdonald, Larch Cabin was the perfect home base for seeing Scotland. Its location in the Strathnairn river valley made it accessible for us to explore the Highlands, Moray, and much of Aberdeenshire. Scott has done a terrific job with the cabin. It is extremely clean, peaceful, modern, well-equipped, and Scott (who is so nice) is just a stone’s throw away should you need anything at all. Do check out the link above if you are considering staying in the Highlands. Larch Cabin has my highest recommendation!
We have returned home with loads (seriously, LOADS) of photos and things to share with you guys and I can’t wait to do so. For today, though, I’ll keep it brief and close with a few more snapshots of Farr and the surrounding area.
These past two weeks have been two of the best of my life. If only I could return.
Oh, wait…I am!
But that’s a topic for another day. 🙂
Have a great week, guys. See you all again soon.
