'Here' is Glasgow, Scotland, and it's where we start our 17-day Scottish vacation. Actually, 14 of those days we'll be spending in Scotland and our last 3 will be in London, England. To say we're excited would be an understatement. During this little adventure we will be visiting: Glasgow (2 days), Inverness (5 days), Stirling/Dunblane (2 days), Edinburgh (5 days), and London (3 days).
The last time I visited Scotland, I was sixteen years old. I also looked like this (no joke):
C, as it turns out, is also for CLOWN. And CREEPY.
We have all of our transportation (to and around) and accommodation already booked, but I'm still researching places to visit in each location. There's just so much to see and not nearly enough time to do it all. One day I'd love the opportunity to explore the Isles of Skye and Iona. So much history.
All I know right now is that there will be castle touring, scotch tasting, after dark Greyfriar's kirkyard visiting, Royal Mile walking, Wallace Monument and Arthur's Seat climbing, men-in-kilts ogling (me, not hubby), bagpipe listening, Culloden remembering, Loch Ness watching, scone eating (and Stone of Scone seeing), and a whole pile of other verbs ending in -ing attached to wonderful Scottish experiences. If you've been and have suggestions for must-see destinations, please share!

P.S. C is also for CROSS your fingers. I'm bringing in my CRAPPED out, CRASHED hard drive today and hoping that some IT wunderkind can recover what is currently trapped on that thing.
