A weekend in Scotland

Hi my lovelies!

If you want to watch my Scotland vlog, it’s here! Or scroll down to read and see photos!

I was lucky enough to be invited along with Jason and his family to Scotland at the weekend, and I had the best time. I’ve never been and follow so many lovely Scottish bloggers and it looks so gorgeous up there!

We were going there with Jason’s dad, Phil, and would be meeting up with his sister Yan and her boyfriend Marc, to stay in an 8-10 person cabin with Hoseasons near Dumfries. It’s also a pup friendly place, so Yan’s dog Kalissie and Mei Lan would be reunited! They go bonkers for each other so they rolled around the place play fighting for most of the weekend.

We arrived on Saturday afternoon (after grabbing a Burger King on the way, chicken Royale FTW, am I right?!) and I did some quick filming whilst Yan, Marc and Phil popped to Tesco for booze and breakfast supplies! (And chocolate. Obvz.)

Jason and I took the doggies for a walk around the site and it was just lovely. A group of cabins together, some bigger than others, some with hot tubs on the wooden wrap around balconies. It was quiet, surrounded by fields full of grazing sheep and just incredibly peaceful.

Since moving to Manchester, I’ve found that there is constant noise. And even back at my parents we’re under the flight path of Liverpool John Lennon Airport, so I’m used to a lot of noise! It was so quiet here though, and I loved it. It was a nice change!

 

We ordered a curry that night and all sat together, drinking beer and chatting while the dogs continued to fight (don’t know where they get the energy). Then we cleared the table and I was reintroduced to Articulate, which I briefly remember playing years ago and I think I convinced myself I was amazing at it.

Unfortunately, I was not. Jason and I lost so many times, and the Monica within me is disappointed. I should probably brush up on my maths geography. We then took our beers outside to the hot tub and sat and chatted, drinking giant Tiger beers and just chilling out!

In the morning, Yan and Marc made an epic breakfast for us all – including sausage slices which I’ve never heard of before but are apparently very popular in Scotland! They were tasty, so I scranned my plate pretty damn quickly, which is pretty standard for me lately (all the foodz).

We ventured out to Caerlaverock Castle so we could walk the dogs. It was so beautiful, and the weather was actually really nice, considering the day before it had blown a gale and was raining all day.

We ordered Chinese that night and played more Articulate. What? Sorry? Pardon? Did we win this time? I don’t want to talk about it.

Here are the rest of the pictures from the weekend! (Some are stolen from Yan!)

    Yay Scotland! I went for the first time last year and was blown away by how amazing the trip was! It’s such a beautiful place and the people are fabulous! Looks like you had the best time! One thing I loved was how quiet it was, I don’t think I’ve ever slept so well after all the fresh air, the silence and the darkness, it was just bliss!

      Yes, I agree! The silence was such a nice change from how loud it is here!

    This makes me so excited to visit Scotland again! It’s great to see that you have fun with your loved ones 🙂 Seeing that breakfast made me so hungry and I’m thinking of making a full English in the very near future! I love the way you write, it’s very engaging. I feel like you are talking to me personally and that’s very good, keep on writing these awesome blogposts!

    I’m glad to see you enjoyed it here in Scotland! I’m so grateful to live here – I love it. You should try making a visit further up north next time towards Inverness – it’s really beautiful!
