Welcome, 2014

There is nothing better than a road trip to the Scottish highlands. It never fails to leave me feeling grateful and inspired, I’m thankful this beauty is only a 2 hour drive from the city I call home. Today, my eyeballs couldn’t quite take it all in. I think I need more road trips in my life.

The bitter weather meant we didn’t spend much time outdoors, stopping off at Glencoe Mountain Resort for a hot chocolate, and (the muchos recommended) The Real Food Cafe for fish and chips. I also tried my first pickled egg. Sold!

Perhaps the best part of visiting this area of Scotland, though, is the lack of phone signal. I can’t check-in on Foursquare, or upload my iPhone snaps to Instagram, or live tweet my adventure. No distractions, just excited eyeballs.

    What a pretty country.

    Beautiful! Reminds me a bit of the time I was at Loch Lomond. (Although I’m not sure if that quite qualifies as the highlands.)

  3. Beautiful shots Ashley! Definitely super inspiring. I need to pick up my camera more. I usually don’t during the winter.

    Your site is one of the most beautiful blog, I have ever seen, and the photos are simply wonderful. Scottish highlands hike without Internet must be a nice experience. 🙂
