Scotland is beautiful, if you’re into that ‘mean-pretty’ kind of thing. Rocky hills and stormy skies are everywhere. Scotland is not exotic, it is rarely sunny, but it is beautiful.
I’ve been going there every year for as long as I can remember. My dad’s side of the family is 15-large, ranging from 3 to 76 years old. We always hire out a huge holiday house, hidden and tucked away in a great glen of Scotland.
There’s a nostalgic vibe to these annual holidays; maybe because they’ve been happening for such a long time, or maybe because Scotland itself just gives me that warm, reminiscent feeling.
With all its harsh, unforgiving rock faces and craggy mountains, the whole place radiates emotion and natural beauty, rooted in silky lochs which reflect the deep colours of hillside bracken. It’s an underrated place; the wettest part of Britain as some like to say, but nevertheless it is vast, and it is beautiful.
