Scotland and Ireland

We flew into Edinburgh and drove throughout Scotland for 1 week. From there we drove south through England and Wales and took a ferry over to Dublin. We spent the second week driving across Ireland, spending most of the time on the West coast, and flew back home out of Shannon. Despite the horrible airline called Aer Lingus ruining our lives, the trip was great!

Haggis, Whisky, and a Royal Palace

Today was our last day in Scotland. One week is definitely not enough time to see everything. I did manage to fit in some fried haggis bites though. Not as disgusting as it might seem, it was actually pretty good.
Cadenheads whisky shop let us sample some local single malts unfiltered, straight out of the cask.
We also visited the country village of Falkland, home of the famous Falkland Palace the summer hunting retreat of the ancient royal family.
Tomorrow we drive south through England and Wales to Holyhead, where we take a ferry over to Dublin to start our last week in Ireland. See ya soon!
