Favorite thing:

This is the view you have at the Glenfinnan Monument on Loch Shiel. It was such a perfect day to see Loch Shiel. What a wonderful light, so strange, but so amazing. The mist is hanging over the lake, the sun is shining brightly and trying to get through the mist. A view I will never forget, this for me is Scotland in the winter.

It was -20 outside, and my toes felt like they were freezing off. But this view, oooh, I just couldn't get enough of it! I could stare at it for hours, but I was dragged back to the car after a while. Hahaha, not everyone wanted to stand here for hours, because their feet where getting too cold :-)
