The past weekend I was on a trip to Scotland with my brother Radin and his friends Dima & Alosha.
On the occasion of Radin’s 30th birthday earlier this year we'd chipped in and surprised him with this weekend getaway.
The idea for our 3 day journey was simple; visit a Whiskey distillery, spend one day in the countryside and do some sightseeing in Edinburgh.
So how was it? Well I got to say that I liked the part of Scotland we had time to explore very much.
The distillery that we ended up visiting, Glengoyne, comes highly recommended. Edinburgh or Dùn Èideann in Scottish Gaelic is a charming city and rich in associations with the past. It has many historic buildings such as the Edinburgh Castle and an extensive Georgian New Town built in the 18th century.
My favorite part of the trip though was the Scottish countryside. The Highland with its misty, vast and green scenery is incredibly beautiful and photogenic. Think Game of Thrones but without the civil war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. It’s definitely on my list of photo locations to return to in the future.
As for my travelling companions, or should I call them "The Golden Terzetto of Gothenburg", it was a blast hanging out with you guys!
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.
