Photographs van Scotland, May 2011

This time we start in Scotland in The Borders, a not very well-known area that most tourists pass by unjustly. Of course we also visit our friends in Beauly and after that we rented a house on the island of Arran for a week. Arran is also called Scotland in miniature. Although we are usually fairly lucky with the weather, it is slightly different this time, it rains all week. But it will again be a beautiful holiday where we discover new things in Scotland.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.
