Weekend Getaways from Glencoe
Glencoe was one of the much awaited spots for us to visit. We rented a car and drove the 115 miles from Edinburgh. And that was our best decision! Scotland is best enjoyed on the road. The road trip itself seemed like a ticket to heaven, but when we got there we were treated with a peek at Hogwarts Express bridge - all Harry Potter fans amongst us were overjoyed. Glencoe also happens to be where a good part of 5th Harry Potter movie was shot. We stopped over a couple of times along the route to enjoy a hot cuppa and the view :) The entire to and fro was a day trip from E'burgh to Glencoe.

After a fill of history, scotch and scrumptious food, keep the last day on the Scotland itinerary to relax and enjoy a slow pace. Take a train from Inverness to Glasgow (it will take about 3 and a half hours). Once there, spend the day taking in the sights and sounds of the city.

Deep in the Scottish Highlands, along a cold mountain stream lies a beautiful little town. A town surrounded by misty mountains, where an imposing castle stands tall overlooking houses that look like tiny matchboxes stacked to perfection. A town where people work during the day and spend the evenings angling in the Ness river which flows right through it. A town consisting of beautiful little cafes, hauntingly pretty alleys and a lush green forested area. Yes I am taking about the jewel in the crown of the Scottish Highlands – InvernessLocated in the far north of the United Kingdom, this place is one where the term “Heaven on Earth” might just stand true and I feel blessed that I have been able to spend a couple of days in this “paradise”In the paragraphs below I will attempt to describe this beauty as much as I can and although what the eyes saw might be tough to replicate in words, I will let my pictures do the talking.
