Photographs van Scotland, spring 2007

We are going to Scotland for 2.5 weeks this spring and this time we are taking the boat from IJmuiden to Newcastle. We start in The Borders, a region that surprises us, it is not so well known by tourists but incredibly beautiful, and then we explore the northern Highlands above Inverness. The journey starts rather wet but at the end we experience a real heat wave; Teije, who has lived in Africa for years, burns on the beach of Ayr for the first time in his life.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.
