When we went, we decided we're moving there. We loved it.
The Highlands, oh my, how beautiful is it up there?
And what got me, are those "Heeland Coos".

Probably at the Tattoo festival in August, no?

I live in Scotland. The weather is the worst. It rained almost every day of August. High winds. We don't get any sun, let alone any summer. Taxation is extremely high. Health Service is non-existent. I'd rather live in Australia.

ps there are loads of delinquents, we call them NEDS. They go about causing trouble and stabbing people. The UK is a broken country. Thats just my personal opinion.

Highland cows, they talk funny there!

I spent a week in Scotland a few years ago, and I have a wee bit of Scots in me blood. It is beautiful in Scotland. Twas the first time I ever tasted whisky too!!! Tried haggis just to say I did, not my favorite dish. Attended what was billed as the worlds largest New Years Eve street party, had a great time

SHAMALICIOUS is from Scotland, and Corazon has a Scottish root as well if I remember correctly. There was also a wonderful Scottish member Ishbel, but sadly she left us

URMANIAC13..................last night I used 5 of your bay leaves in my mexican dinner, as usual, they made it wonderful, thanks again.

Linguini, I am so sad to hear that news or know that news.
I love your country, I could cry thinking of how gorgeous it is.

I don't think that any place is nirvana for anyone..........unless you're well off and can afford great insurance and take off when the weather is getting on your nerves........if you're stuck there then it's a different matter........which is for most of us......

I saw the "heeland coos" too - I had my picture taken with one in the Highlands too (I know, how corny but how could I resist? they are TOO cute). We weren't in Scotland for the tattoo, we were in Edinburgh and the Highlands last week - just after the tattoo and the fringe festivals ended. So it was a wee bit quiet, but we thoroughly enjoyed it after being in the hustle and bustle AND rain of London. We lucked out and had good weather. I even got a Scottish suntan.

I want to go back someday and hike around in the Highlands, so beautiful!

For the Scots on here, how can I get my mitts on some Ginger Tam?
