I can relate to Faith's comment above. I have been in love with Scotland and its lore since the first time I heard the haunting lure of bagpipes at the age of 12. I am not sure what it is , as my ancestry is not connected in any way (that I know of) to Scotland; but let if suffice to say that I, too, wonder if perhaps in a previous life there was some connection. Needless to say, when I visited Scotland two years ago, I truly felt like I had arrived home. I did not feel like an "Outlander." Strange, but true. Of course, I am going back, so much of the country to still see. Enjoyed reading this Blog. Keep up the good work.
Interestingly, my whole life has led me to have contact with Scots in the most unusual and random fashion - serendipity/kismet/bashert/coincidence/meant to be - call it what you will. Deep down I feel very much drawn to Scotland and the Highland way of life, so when I watch Outlander I feel a sense of atonement and an "at home" feeling. Maybe in a former life I lived there! Maybe I'm a Claire of sorts...When I have the $ I would love to visit Scotland to immerse myself in the culture and study the folklore. Who knows, I might uncover a past which resonates so strongly with me today ; )
My husband and went to Scotland this past summer. We traveled all across the country. We even drove a car in the Highlands. That was an experience! It is a beautiful country with really the most wonderful people. My love of Scotland ( I'm a McNab) led me to a love of Outlander! We did go on an Outlander Tour, which was also a wonderful experience.
I’ve been quite a few times, because my father’s family is Scottish.
We went last July with Best Scttish Tours of the U.K
Wonderful completely unforgettable trip.We are both of Scots heritage and it was so special to see where our ancestors came from and also some not quite distant realatives too !
So excited to be planning a late July trip to London for a few days and then 10 days in Scotland.
Went to Edinburgh for last wkend before deployment to AFG. Didn’t realize then that I/we were too stressed to destress before deployment ????. Would love to visit-to ????
