I had never been up to Scotland, until last week when I went with some friends to the Orkney islands. Its stunning epic scenery on the LONG drive up, and then after the ferry over it turns into more rolling hills, very Jane Eyre. Although I live in London now I grew up in the countryside and I love escaping the city every now and again. . . . . . .
There are cows EVERYWHERE, and they are really funny. They are so curious, they come and look at you for ages but if you take a step towards them they run a mile! Very cute though, with their big eyes :) I loved the cows.
