Visit Scotland: Jacobite Loch Ness Cruise

On Day 4 of the Great Britain Tour with Expat Explore, we went further north to the Scottish Highlands to explore Inverness and Loch Ness.

While it was a short visit to Inverness city after Edinburgh, we spent most of our time on a cruise at Loch Ness, a large deep loch southwest of Inverness.

Jacobite Loch Ness Cruise was the cruise provider – probably the only cruise service offered in that area.

Visit Scotland: Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is an iconic landmark and a tourist attraction in the capital city of Scotland. It’s a historical fortress that dominates the city’s skyline.

Located at the west end of Royal Mile, this magnificent castle stands proudly on an extinct volcanic rock.

It’s not always that I get a chance to visit a medieval castle, and hence Edinburgh Castle is the first castle I’ve actually spent time exploring.

Visit Scotland: Edinburgh Free Day

On the third day of the Great Britain Tour with Expat Explore, we had a free day in Edinburgh, Scotland‘s capital and second-largest city.

It was my first visit to a country that has the unicorn as its national animal. But I didn’t see any unicorns though.

Maybe a Scottish Terrier instead? Woof?

Anyway, Edinburgh is associated with the past and many historical features. So I knew it was gonna be an exciting day of exploration within the city.
