We were fortunate enough to stay in a beautiful hotel the Trossachs. It was the most gorgeous hotel I've stayed in. With lovely furnishings with tartan pieces, beautiful views (we were especially pleased with our beautiful view of the mountains, which, due to it being so cold, were topped with snow!) not to mention the beautiful pool, sauna, steam room and billiard room!

beautiful none the less!!
On one of the days we nipped into Edinburgh, which is somewhere where I have never visited before. And there it was absolutely beautiful. We went up to the castle, and then had a little adventure around the city. It was lovely because it was so different to places such as London, and everyone in all of the shops were so kind and lovely. And of course we had a bit of retail therapy too!

Anyway Kate, keep on track!! ...
I was also fortunate enough to have a beautiful boat trip on one of the Lochs, the views were stunning, and at one time we even got a rare sneak peak at the sun! I was lucky enough to be let loose with steering the boat, with instruction to 'keep off the grass', and I musn't have done too bad a job, because by the end, he'd asked whether I'd done it before! Now, that may have been sarcastic, but I'd like to say it wasn't!!

I hope you've all had a lovely past week!!
