Snow. But we couldn't touch it
Well we have made it to the north of Scotland. We arrived in Glasgow and spent two very wet days there. It is a big city and isn't really tourist orientated, however it was lovely to get back to a English speaking country! We took the tourist bus and trekked around the city it was nice to look at. We had lunch at a quite Scottish pub where Troy ordered authentic Scottish Ale (hot and flat), Rhiannon didn't mind it. We then jumped on a bus (which cost a total of 11 Pounds for two) to Inverness. On the way up the country we saw SNOW thick beautiful white snow but.... we couldn't stop so Rhiannon once again has missed out on the snow angel experience. Inverness is the town closest to Loch Ness ....home of Nessie the Loch Ness monster. We took a cruise up the Loch (very cold but so beautiful), the water was a dark almost black colour from all the peat in the water. We then continued onto Urquhart castle ruins and explored that for about an hour then we walked up to the Nessie exhibition. The exhibition showed all the evidence that has been uncovered to

The River Ness. Runs from Loch Ness
suggest that there is a 'monster' but also showed how the evidence could also be made up...so it's your choice really. Personally I think there might be something in the water it's one of the deepest and largest amounts of freshwater in the world. We traveled south again and ended up in Edinburgh. The bus trip was long and a bit nerve racking there was a severe wind warning and the bus driver was like "hold on to your seats it's about to get very windy across the bridge" apparently it was closed to large heavy vehicles (the bus was pretty big, but not as big as a caravan apparently as they had to stay behind). Found an Aussie bar which we will attack tomorrow night called the 'Walkabout'. On the way past we heard some karaoke, thats when Rhiannon garbed my hand and pulled me the other way.

Will keep you updated

cheers (that's what everyone says over here)
