Left the hostel this morning and made our way back to Edinburgh. Stopped at some of the most beautiful scenery you will every see and at some of the more famous clan battle locations(Glen Coe). The Massacre of Glencoe occurred in Glen Coe, Scotland, in the early morning of 13 February 1692, during the era of the Glorious Revolution and Jacobitism. The massacre began simultaneously in three settlements along the glen—Invercoe, Inverrigan, and Achacon—although the killing took place all over the glen as fleeing MacDonalds were pursued. Thirty-seven MacDonalds from the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by the guests who had accepted their hospitality, on the grounds that the MacDonalds had not been prompt in pledging allegiance to the new king, William of Orange. Another forty women and children died of exposure after their homes were burned. The murders were the Campbells and the named is still hated by many throughout Scotland.
Also stopped at the William Wallace Memorial and saw the battlefield at Sterling. Too much other things to mention. Our pictures, which we have taken a ton of, will have to be enough.
The Haggis Tour we took was incredible. The driver and guide are hilarious, informative and make it worthwhile. If you never got out of the bus it would be worth it. They treated us way above what we would ever expect when we got engaged and I would highly recommend taking the tour. We are doing their sister company tour in Ireland and we can only hope they are half as good.
Cheers to all our fellow travellers. You guys and girls were awesome. Hope to keep in touch with you.
