Trains-2Our trip over oceans through woods to islands in Scotland happened in subway, taxis, planes, trains, boats, and cars. For my last post on our summer trip to Scotland, I wanted to share some of the photos Walker took on trains and boats on our travels.

Trains-1From Edinburgh, we boarded a train to Glasgow and then to Mallaig. The trains made a thousand stops, but seeing into each village and glen was kindof like looking into beautiful living rooms here in Brooklyn so it was all part of the fun.

Once on Skye, we rented a car, and you’ve seen some of those photos in my previous post. On the way back from Scotland, we took the train from Kyle of Lochalsh to Inverness, Trains-27

Walk didn’t take photos there, and instead we just soaked it in. We walked on the beach until our knees hurt and the winds blew our breath out of us. We visited the restaurant of our first date, coffee shops, new spots in town, and so many old pals. It felt like home.

We loved being back in one of our favorite spots in the world so, so much.
