I'm going to Scotland!!

I'm leaving for Scotland today!!  I'm going to spend a week touring around the country with my brother and sister-in-law.  (Neither of them are OUTLANDER fans, but they are certainly well aware of my addiction, this blog, and what I do on Compuserve.)

Naturally I'm tremendously excited, as you can imagine! This is my second trip to Scotland.  Some of you may recall that I visited Scotland in 2012 with my mom and my sister on Judy Lowstuter's Celtic Journeys OUTLANDER Tour, and we had a fabulous time.
 
On this trip, we're going to rent a car and explore the country at our own pace. We will certainly visit Culloden, but also some places, like the Isle of Skye, that I didn't get to see on the last trip.

Outlandish Observations will be going on hiatus for a couple of weeks. I promise I'll post a detailed account of our trip (with pictures!) when I get home.

Have a wonderful trip Karen. I'm sure you'll send lots of pictures and reports on your adventures. Let us know how the driving thing goes. We're renting a car for our trip in August and I'm a little nervous"

You have every reason to be nervous if renting a car in Scotland. Driving on the wrong side of the road and steering wheel on passenger side is trip! I did it for 3 weeks. It was an adventure I'll never forget. Have a great time. I sure did.
