Scotland Road Trip Day 3: Glencoe to Loch Ness Via The Hogwarts Express

Alright, I'm seriously lagging behind on these Scotland road trip posts, aren't I?! I promise to catch up before I go to Venice in a few days - it'll be the first time I've travelled abroad in over a year, which is absolutely ridiculous. Really living up to your name there, Clazz.

Scotland Road Trip Day 2: A Sunny Loch Lomond to… A Rainy Glencoe

Our luck with the weather improved on our second day of the Scotland road trip. For a whole twenty minutes.

Why You Should Visit Orkney

Welcome to my 100th post on An Orcadian Abroad! What better way to celebrate than by writing about my own home town - the reason behind the name of my blog?
