A month ago I wrote that I had an exciting announcement to make soon. Today is the day. I am happy to say that I am going to spend New Year’s Eve in Edinburgh and then travel through Scotland for a week and a half!
My trip to Edinburgh will start with the annual Hogmanay festival, a multi-day New Year’s Eve extravaganza that involves torchlight processions, street parties, dancing, concerts, and fireworks over the castle.
I will attend Hogmanay with a group of other travel bloggers. During the festivities you can follow us on Twitter and other social media platforms using the hashtag #blogmanay. You can also check A Lady in London and the Blogmanay website for photos, stories, and updates.
From Hogmanay, I will head north to Glencoe, where parts of the new James Bond movie Skyfall were filmed. I will also go to the Isle of Skye, one of the most beautiful islands off the coast of Scotland. I will even hit up Loch Ness to visit the lake’s most famous inhabitant!
I will then travel south again to St Andrews, a beautiful university town, and Gleneagles of golfing fame.
I cannot wait to travel in Scotland, and would love to hear your recommendations if you have been to any of the places I’m going to visit!
