One month from today this beautiful couple will be getting married. We met up to take these engagement photos a few weeks ago on a super hot Arkansas summer morning. Luckily they were willing to meet up with me super early to catch that golden light and get photos in before the heat got the best of us.
happy travels and dream on Harrison family!
We parked in the lot provided and from the moment we got out of the car Dunnottar started to lay on the charm. We could hear the bagpiper playing and the short walk on a narrow road took us to the music with amazing views.
This castle is a bit of a commitment as the walk is steep with lots of steps and it is one of the ruins that charges, but was totally worth it.
After the hills around the castle we decided to head into the nearby town (I am in love) and grab some fish and chips. We caught up with Cole, who had come with us but taken a small hike from the parking lot. He was sweet enough to run around on the beach with the boys and then we all sat on the rocks and ate the most delicious fish and chips I have ever had. I mean seriously amazing!
Dunnottar was maybe not our most favorite castle I would say it is a must see! It was so striking and the views from and around it were indescribable. We loved it.
On our Saturday in Scotland we headed out for another day of adventure, but this time with Taido in tow. We snuggled up in the Chino van (we pushed the limits on this several times) and went a bit north for a walk along the sea. I was a little bit nervous as the walk started with a small climb up some rocks and my knee is not back to normal, but at first sight the view was going to be totally worth it.
We were on an ongoing hunt for the highland coo, but were plenty entertained by this field full of regular Scottish cows. They followed the boys and loved the sound of my camera.
Our second day in Scotland was spent adjusting to the time change and hanging at the Chino house while the kids finished up school. Campbell also had a stomach problem that kept us close to home and enjoying a lazy day, but I was itching to get out of the house and so that evening we hit the ground running. Starting our tour of castles and gardens. Scotland is the land of castles and gardens...AMAZING!!!
And while they battled we took time to stop and smell the roses, literally. THe most amazing garden that took me back to my love of Alice and Wonderland and the Secret Garden. I walked around in total amazement and came home with an unbelievable amount of flower photos.
