A lot of people claim that they have seen it, and taken pictures of it, but no one has ever had real evidence, so no one really know if it’s true.
The Highland games are festivals held throughout the year in Scotland, as a way of celebrating Scottish and Celtic culture and heritage. Certain aspects of the games are so well known that they have become a symbol of Scotland, like the bagpipes, the kilt, and the heavy events.
Even though Glasgow was a tempting city, we had to follow the itinerary and move on to our next stop in Edinburgh.
However Edinburg, Scotland’s capital was an amazing experience as well, here we tasted Scotland’s national dish Haggis at the famous restaurant Crombie’s. Haggis consists of the heart, lungs, and liver of a sheep, calf, etc., and is mixed with suet and oatmeal, seasoned with salt, pepper, onions, etc. Afterwards it is boiled for about 3 hours like a large sausage in the stomach of a sheep. In my opinion, it was a very strange type of food, but still an interesting taste.
Later on, we got to visit Edinburgh castle, which is an ancient fortress in centre Edinburgh. It is placed on top of a volcanic rock called Castle Rock, with a beautiful view. The castle dominates the sky-line of the city, and it’s a spectacular attraction. Earlier, it was used as a defend fortress for the inhabitants in the city. Today it’s open for tourists to visit.
That was a small summary of my trip through Scotland. I really fall in love with Scotland as the beautiful country it is. With spectacular attractions and an amazing culture it is a country I more than ever would like to visit again.
I hope you had such a nice vacation as I‘d had.
Lots of hugs from your dearest
