Travel Tuesday: Roadside Attractions | Scotland

Happy Travel Tuesday everyone!! I’m writing from the cold and wet east coast this week and I have to say I’m loving it! (smile) I know that sounds strange but, believe it or not, there is such a thing as too much sunshine. So I’m linking up today with Bonnie, Tina, and Melanie and going on a road trip through Scotland with weather very similar to that I see out the window right now.

One of my favorite things about Europe/the UK is the free access to archaeological sites and ruins. Here in the U.S. such things are inevitably roped off with “No touching” signs all over the place. I understand to a certain degree, but it does detract from the experience somewhat to have someone looking over your shoulder the whole time. While on our recent road trip through western Scotland, we actually had some difficulty in reaching our next destination in good time thanks to all the lovely “roadside attractions” along the way. Today I thought I would share photos from a few of these unscheduled stops. In some ways I think these were my favorite sites just because they were such unexpected surprises (smile).

    • Thanks so much!! Scotland is definitely a scenic country – and fun no matter what type of transport! We saw so many things that made us want to stop but time prevented, I just settled for my imagination 🙂

    • Thanks! I think it’s def my favorite photo from the trip.
      It certainly is amazing to try to comprehend just how long some of these have been in existence. I like the less curated stops because it’s easier to use my imagination – way more fun and hands on 🙂
