I have Scottish heritage on both my father and mother’s side of the family and my maiden name is a Scottish name! Having been brought up until I was 13 on the north-east coast of England Scotland was a regular destination. I can remember many visit to Edinburgh as a child.
We visit Scotland often and have visited every major city. I have yet to visit the Orkney Islands though and they are somewhere I really would like to get to.
We caught the Caledonian Sleeper train from London to Inverness a few years ago and this is another trip I would like to redo! Watch this space for that!
