Photographs van Scotland, September 2015

In 2015 we visit Scotland in September and our main destination is Mull, an island of the Inner Hebrides where we have booked a cottage for a week. Mull is the third largest island in Scotland and we also cross a day to the Isle of Iona where there is a famous monastery. Unfortunately, the weather is not fantastic and we have a lot of rain, but luckily it is regularly dry during the day and we see beautiful things again.
And for a change we fly again to Scotland, this time to Inverness, and rent a car so that we have less travel time.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.

15 to 17 September, by plane to Inverness (Travelogue)
