Travel Journal: Scotland
The next stop was the Sligachan Bridge and river. It was a stunning view of a crystal clear river running through the rocks and mountains of the countryside. From this point, we ascended into the Cuillin mountains. Our next few stops were my absolute favorites. We stopped at the famous Kilt Rock, which showcases an amazing waterfall flowing 170 feet from Loch Mealt into the Sound of Raasay.
My absolute favorite stop was An Lethallt. It's a stunning cliff that made me feel so small yet so alive. Looking out into the water, I fell in love with nature. I've never been outdoorsy or particularly liked being outside, but I was in awe and amazement of the beauty of nature and God's creation. And I couldn't get enough.
We took a lunch break in Portree, and explored the area. Even though the shops were closed because it was Sunday, we took in the town and walked around. After that we got back on the road and took a short break in Fort William, arriving back in Glasgow around 8:30 p.m.
All in all, it was one of my favorite weekends so far. I experienced so much of what Scotland has to offer. I loved the city but I loved the Highlands even more. I feel that I'll be back at some point in my life. I'll never forget my connection to Scotland and nature, knowing I'll always carry it in my heart.
