Clans, Castles, and Loch Ness

A year ago yesterday, my family embarked on a cross-country tour of Scotland.  That was- and still is- one of my most favorite places on this earth.  I’ve been a lot of places, with no plans on stopping any time soon.  But there’s just something about Scotland that captures my heart.

I want to go back so bad.
