Summer in Scotland


After we arrived in Glasgow we took a little tour through the city center and had our first fresh beer from the tap. I don’t know why some people always complain about British beers…they are fantastic.

On our way to Inverness

The next 2 days we’ve been on the road through the Highlands to Inverness and past lovely Loch Lomond, stopped in Glencoe, had wonderful views of the Highlands and Ben Navis on the first day and followed the Caledonian Canal after a night in Onich up to Inverness , where all the adventure should start for us. Hiring a Houseboat for the first time.

Following the Caledonian Canal

It has been amazing how friendly and helpful all people have been on that tour. Since we didn’t had any experience in riding a boat, mooring and using the locks we depended on the first days on those people helping us to berth and getting everything right. Thank you so much you friendly people. So we went all way down to Fort Williams and back to Inverness, seeing Nessy many times on Loch Ness, at least it looked like.

Elgin, Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth

We really made it back from our boat trip and needed something else to do. So we followed the road again to Aberdeen and Perth. Dundee didn’t really like us. There was not much to see except a lot of water falling from the sky.


Edinburgh is just a fantastic city. It’s location, the historic buildings and the Castle on the hill is so unique…and by the way, I love Scottish humour
