Romantic Getaway – Scotland

09 JUNE 2010:

Scot

My boyfriend Lee and I fancied a little trip away for some alone time. He wasn’t a British citizen at that time and would have struggled to get a visa for somewhere outside of the UK so we opted for Scotland. It was a 7 hour drive so we decided to drive through the night to avoid traffic.

We chose to visit both Edinburgh and Glasgow so we could compare the two cities – one being the largest city in Scotland and the other being the capital city.

I don’t recall many details of places I visited unfortunately as it was back in 2010 before I started documenting my travels. However I did have a lovely time away with my boyfriend, exploring the cities, taking lots of selfies and having a well deserved break.

EDINBURGH

Hilly Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital, has a medieval Old Town and an elegant Georgian New Town, with gardens and neoclassical buildings. It’s home to Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano in Holyrood Park with sweeping views from its peak. Looming over the city is hilltop Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, traditionally used in the coronation of Scottish rulers.

GLASGOW

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and the third largest in the United Kingdom (after London and Birmingham). Historically part of Lanarkshire, it is situated on the River Clyde in the country’s West Central Lowlands. Inhabitants of the city are referred to as Glaswegians.
