Fun and sights in Scotland.


We happened to visit Edinburgh during the Fringe festival being held there. It is a fun festival where there are a lot of street performances apart from theatrical performances and the city is wrapped in the festivities. Click on the link below for a virtual experience.



We kicked off our Edinburgh experiences with a Free Walking tour conducted by our favourite Sandeman’s. The guide as always very knowledgeable started rattling off the history of Scotland as we walked through the historic city of Edinburgh. Click on the link below for a virtual experience.



Scotland is riding country. My riding plans got scuttled by paucity of time. However I did the next best thing. Took a bus trip to Loch Ness from Edinburgh and back and though we did not reach Loch Ness due to a road closure caused by a fatal accident, we were taken round the countryside which soothed all frayed nerves and everyone was happy at the end of the day when dropped off. Such is the magnificence of the Scottish countryside. Click on the link below for a virtual experience.
