Loch Ness, Scotland

When we first arrived, the two smallest children were sleeping so my husband went ahead with the older children. I woke the littles up and took them down to the shore, spotted my husband and said to Max “look, we found him!” But as I turned the corner I came face-to-er-face? with a young man who was bent over, changing into his swimming shorts. Awkward!

Stirling Castle, Scotland

We learnt a little bit about Stirling castle’s occupation and development throughout its history, and the tour guide had loads of stories and was funny, but it wasn’t long until a little hand tugged mine and Max said “I want to go back to the car”. So I took the littles with me and had a stroll around the castle without a guide.
