At the beginning of this summer we had a plan – to see as much of Scotland as we could in 4 months. As Scotland is such a small country we thought this would be heaps of time!! Turns out it isn’t…
Luckily for us living in Scotland meant that we have seen a lot of the mainland on weekend road trips, but I can honestly say that even 6 months probably isn’t enough if you really want to experience the real Scotland.
There is so much diversity here – from the viking heritage in Sheltand and Orkney, to the Picts with their Brochs, the ancient Stone Circles and Chambered Cairns older than the pyramids.
Even the more relatively recent history of the last few hundred years with Mary Queen of Scots, Robert the Bruce, William Wallace – right up to Robert Louis Stevenson (and all of his light house family!!) and so many more to mention.
We are currently travelling in an area which we were told yesterday has a higher concentration of castles than even Bavaria (Aberdeenshire). Scotland really is so much more than people realise, and I haven’t even mentioned the natural beauty – some of the least populated areas of Europe.
But as I said we are coming to an end of our 4 month trip after which our plan has been to move back to Australia. Sadly our time in Scotland is coming to an end and this means that we are selling Harmony before we go.
As such I have made a van tour video – well for a few reasons really… When we were looking to buy Harmony there were no videos on line to get an idea of layout and room so I am hoping this video helps people interested in these awesome wee retro campers.
Another reason was pure nostalgia. I can’t count the number of times we’ve been having a cup of tea in Harmony and I’ve looked around and said to Neal – but maybe we COULD just take her home with us… she’s that awesome!!
But I know that she won’t like the roads over there – she is much more suited to the winding country roads than our 100km p/h plus highways which cover huge distances. She also doesn’t have air-con which is kind of a must for what we want to do, and she’s probably not really designed for full time living for the type of travel we want to do!!
So with all that said and done – here is our van tour video of Harmony. I hope you enjoy it and feel free to share it with your family and friends if you would like to help find Harmony an awesome new home. We’d really love to find someone who will appreciate all she has to offer and take her on many more adventures!!
In the meantime we are still travelling around Scotland for the next wee while and so will continue to write about all that we find to SUP along the way.
Join us next week as we continue through Moray and Aberdeenshire.
