What could be more fun that spending part of your summer in Scotland?  That's exactly what I'm going to do—as soon as September rolls around.  Along with two of my girlfriends, I'm winging my way to Edinburgh to catch my first glimpse of castles, cathedrals and abbeys, ones that are in ruins and ones where royalty still walk the halls and dine in splendor.  Edinburgh, Stirling, Glamis, St. Andrews—sigh!  Sadly, we won't be able to visit Balmoral, which Queen Victoria described in her journals as "my dear paradise in the Highlands."  Queen Elizabeth will be in residence while we're visiting, so we'll simply have to drive by and wave.

After five days in Scotland, we'll head by train to Windsor, to visit treasures from the Royal Archives, the tomb of King Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour, and souvenir shop—naturally!  On to Bath and the Cotswolds, more cathedrals, abbeys—yes!, a tour of Highclere Castle, where Downton Abbey is filmed, then off to London to visit all the iconic places: Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, lunch in The Crypt, and the Jack the Ripper tour! From there, another train through England and Wales, then a ferry ride to Ireland to see the Book of Kells, the 800 AD illuminated manuscript at Trinity College in Dublin, the Cliffs of Moher, and Blarney Castle, of course!

No matter where we go, we'll enjoy traditional music and customs, picnic in the beauty of the countryside, hike, stroll through history and myth, and yes, we'll probably try some single malt Scotch whisky, raise a pint of Guinness in an Irish pub, and maybe even try some haggis.

This will be my first trip to Britain and I can't wait!  I've been a romantic all of my life.  I've dreamed of castles and kings and knights of old.  This trip is a dream come true, staying in B&Bs, driving on the wrong side of the car on the wrong side of the road, and just having a grand old time.  If you can't go to Scotland this summer, I promise to share photos on my Facebook page.  Whether or not you've been to Scotland (and whether or not you're married or have a significant other!), if you download a copy of Sinfully Scottish, you can share my dream of meeting and falling in love with a ravishing Highlander.  Enjoy!


Happy Holiday's
