Happy Earth Day! (From Scotland!)

April 23, 2015

Last weekend I had the opporunity to travel around the Scottish Highlands with my aunt. We saw some stunning man-made architecture in the form of castles and churches, but most of all, we witnessed the incredible natural landscape of the Highlands. In honor of Earth Day, here are some of my favorite snapshots from that trip of the beautiful landscape of the Highlands.

A look at the Isle of Mull from Lachaline, the spot where my great great great grandparents were married in the 1800s.

One of earth's beautiful creatures--sheep! These are in abundance in Scotland (and Ireland)!
