We drove an hour or so up to Dunrobin Castle, which is much more modern, but just as stunning.

We climbed to the top of Arthur’s Seat, and the sky looked so big and beautiful!

On our way out of town we stopped at Rosslyn Chapel (mostly because we had watched The Davinci Code the night before).

After Edinburgh we headed up the coast the Inverness, and saw some adorable houses along the way.

After driving through the Highlands, we came to the tiny town of Sconsor on the Isle of Skye, where we boarded a ferry to the island of Raasay.

We stayed at the Raasay House, a beautiful mansion sitting on a lot of land.

One of my favorite things of the entire trip happened on this island. We followed a tiny path, and found some sheep. The sheep took us down a trail that ran next to the ocean, and we followed them for a long while until we came to a stunning spot!

Here is my sister Lily leading us through the jungle.

Ireland

Although we only spent three days in Dublin, I completely fell in love with the city.

The best part of Dublin? Touring the Guinness Storehouse!
