( my adventures in pictures - scottish highlands )

Fun & Inspirations...
Where do I start... What a fantastic weekend with the family! I went up to the Highlands of Scotland this weekend for my Auntie's Birthday which was on the Saturday. It was fantastic to see all of the Wilson and Main side of the family all under one roof... Nobody parties like the Scottish :)
Sunday was spent relaxing all day nursing our hangovers, hehehe...

Monday was INCREDIBLE... My Dad took me to Findochty, a tiny fishing village in Moray, Scotland. It's one of the most beautiful place I've seen. Findochty is where my Dad was born and raised, and he wanted to teach and show me all about his childhood there. He has told me all the stories of his lovely upbringing throughout my life, but he could tell me these stories a million times and I would never get bored! To actually visualise these stories in this magical fishing village was incredible and very emotional. 
The Cullen Skink (A Traditional Fish Soup from Cullen which is the village next to Findochty) in the pub was amazing, but not as good as my Dads.
Thank you Dad for a wonderful day there. Lets go back again soon :) 
I really hope you all enjoy looking at these photos as much as I did taking them.
