What to see in Scotland in 7 days (II)

Hi, guys! I am back to writing my second part about our trip to Scotland. I hope you truly enjoyed reading what we did during our first three days in Scotland. If you didn't have a chance to read, please follow up this link >>> here.

Day 4:

On day 4, we decided to shoot my outfits for the blog, just because it is so pretty in Tobermory. It was a very quiet morning, and we enjoyed a quick breakfast at a local cafe before hitting the road again to get to the next spot. Our next vista was a Castle Stalker, located on the way to Glen Coe. Actually, this castle appeared on the comedy film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail'. After trying to figure out how to get closer to the Castle, I would advise you to not stop at the Stalker Castle Cafe, unless you are super hungry. You can get a closer look from the highway en route to Glen Coe. Afterwards, we drove to the next castle that was on our list. Can you guess where we went? Of course, to Loch Ness Castle! To be clear, Urquhart Castle sits right on the bank of Loch Ness. We were worrying that we would not make it on time, or we wouldn't be able to see everything. As it turns out, you don't need to spend more than 1 hour there, unless you are planning to take a boat tour to find the Loch Ness monster ;).  For dinner, we drove to Inverness and stopped at the local restaurant "Johnny Foxes." After delicious dinner of haggis, venison, mussels, and local beer, we crashed in our charming AirBnB.

Day 5:

The next morning, we got up very early (again!). Our plan was to get as far as possible to the north. My original plan was to see Castle Keiss, but we end up seeing more. I was also super happy that throughout our entire trip, we had beautiful and sunny weather. We ended up visiting Dunrobin Castle, Castle Sinclair Girnigoe, and of course, Keiss Castle. Dunrobin Castle was unexpected and beautiful. It is surrounded by the forest and a beautiful garden. Sadly, we were not aloud to take pictures inside, but I hope you watched my insta stories when we visited the Castle. I am definitely recommending that you make time to visit this place. Beside the stunning architecture, art and furniture, you can enjoy yummy food (to include scrumptious pastries). As for ruins, I was hoping that we will see Castle Sinclair and Keiss in a spooky mood, but due to the very sunny weather, it made it more attractive than scary. After a long drive along the coast, we started our trip back to Edinburgh. We had to spend the night in Perth.

Day 6-7:

To be frank, we felt quite exhausted from the road, but we couldn't totally skip Perth. We stopped at the Scone Palace. In this palace, we were not aloud to take pictures again (so lame). However, if you are a big fan of history, definitely visit the crowning place of Scottish Kings. After few hours in Perth, we headed to the oldest working whiskey distillery in the country. We couldn't leave Scotland without buying Scottish whisky. We ended up at The Famous Grouse Distillery, where we learned how whisky is made. After that, we got to St. Andrews to see the famous golf course, cathedral and castle ruins. The cathedral was truly spectacular and fascinating. It is a truly awe inspiring place. After few powerful hours in St. Andrews, we drove back to Edinburgh, making sure to check out Circus Lane to finish off our sightseeing.
