A few pics of my road trip

During the holidays we decided to take a trip up to the north of Scotland to take in the sights...and some of the best driving roads in Britain, over 500 miles over 3 days, we had the roof down all the way
As you can see, the scenery is stunning.

The first pic is Glamis Castle,near Dundee,Scottish home of the late Queen mother. After a few hours there we drove across to Perthshire and stayed the night in Blair Atholl, which also has another magnificent castle.
The 2nd,3rd and 4th pics were taken at Eilean Donan castle on the north west coast. After another few hours there to take in the views we travelled over to Inverness to stay the night, the 5th and 6th pics were taken from outside our hotel in Inverness. The last 2 pics were taken at Urquhart castle on Loch Ness before we headed home
