Castle & Queens
Scotland, Spring 2013

It doesn't matter how often you visit Scotland, there is always something new, fresh and different to discover.

Our small gang discovered the richness of early Spring colors with their browns, muted greens, light dusting of purple - and daffodils. Everywhere.

It was a good trip with snow in the high passes, lambs gamboling all over the fields, shoppers gamboling all over Buchanan Street in Glasgow and just over all the hauntingly lonely, beautiful scenery of the highlands.

We took in Balmoral Castle, the home of the Royals in the Autumn as well as the former retreat for the late Queen Mum at the Castle of Mey at the highest point you can get on the British mainland.

Also took in Culloden, Stirling Castle, the mysterious Clava Burial Cairns and standing stones as well as the ancient Clootie Well, a prayer site and wishing well that has been used by literally thousands of years.

And we had some great accommodation and meals along the way with possibly the big surprise being the little Loch Kinord Hotel in Royal Deeside. This is a true highland hotel with dinners that were absolutely brilliant! 

Mind you, it would have been difficult to fault Dornoch Castle Hotel our 15th century home for a couple of nights, nor too would it be easy to decry the stunningly situated Atholl Palace Hotel high on a high overlooking the lands of Atholl and Pitlochry.

Inverness was good with a free day thrown in to shop, browse and try to dodge the winds blowing down from the highlands.

Glasgow takes on a new face each time we stay in Scotland's largest city. The Carlton George couldn't be better situated just steps away from one of the UK's best shopping areas - Buchanan Street.

Good people make for a good tour.  And it was a very good tour.
