Here's a video I made from the four months I spent traveling in China. Take a look and let me know what you think - just make sure to change the quality to 480p.
I drove from Sheffield to Fort William today (different dates from what I mentioned in my plans earlier). And boy, was I thrilled! A82 road from Glasgow to Forty William was exhilarating. Imposing mountains on all sides, vat lakes, sun setting in the horizon, cover of fog...this was something else. For most part it was beautiful, but in parts it was scary too because for very long stretches there was no civilization and fog far away was limiting my vision. And then I also got low fuel warning in between Added to the thrill!
I'm really glad that I took the decision to drive up to the Scottish Highlands. Turns out this was the road that James Bond drove through in the movie Skyfall. Seem to have a lot of history behind it too.
Tomorrow I'm off to Edinburgh. Haven't quite planned what I'd do. Let's see how it goes, though I have half a mind to drive further up to Inverness

Scotland is a magical part of the world. Such a lovely place, minus the Neds Would love to get back there myself sometime.

Headed to Scotland to visit family in May, myself. Had a trip in '09, favourite place is probably Edinburgh. Glasgow could take or leave. No matter where I was, the food was generally awful. Looking forward to it.

Oh yeah, did go to Chocolate Soup last time, was great. The smorgasboard-style Gardenwise cacophany of carbs, fat and blood......less so.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
If you could guarantee the weather then I wouldn't want to leave Scotland for much. The Western Isles are absolutely stunning - so much so that the Tourist Board of Thailand has used images of the beaches on Barra (IIRC) and passed them off as Thailand. If you could guarantee a week or two of warm sunshine then I wouldn't consider going abroad for some sun.
One thing that's on my bucketlist is to spend a long weekend on Islay and just tour the distilleries.
Have been out to Barra, rode a bicycle around it. It was a beautiful little island. The planes landing on the beach and sitting on the beach in a jacket were interesting experiences. The wire fences around the greens on the golf course to keep out the sheep were also unique.

I was thrilled to visit the Pyramids but if you like this sort of thing Ephesus is a must, a truly magical experience.
