Highlands and Islands - Scotland and Norway
Besides the Eurotunnel there is the ferry-line Rotterdam-Hull and Ijmuiden (Amsterdam) - Newcastle.
We of course prefer the ferry. It is wonderful to relax while while the ship brings us closer. On board there is shopping, restaurants and a full breakfast before we reach the British border.
Tent, Bed & Breakfast or... Cottage!
We tried it all. We also slept outside by the river without any tent.
However, if kids are involved then a cottage is recommended. On the other hand we love the British breakfast, so we must have B&B each time.
And there is a lot. Starting from the antique Edinburgh up to the overcrowded Eilean Donan Castle into the lonely Highlands.
In between there is something for anybody, lonely roads, woods or just remote places. And there are wonderful beaches, too. We will report about everything.
