Winter Wonderland, Highland

Highland, literally, means the north of Scotland, the high areas. I decided to take a one day tour of Highland through a Highland tour company. The tour bus driver said that Highland bus tour course is one of the greatest one day tour courses in Europe. This tour is a 12 hour tour which leaves Edinburgh at 8 o’clock in the morning and returns at 8 o’clock in the evening. But to see the famous beautiful snowy landscape of Highland I’ve decided to endure that much.

Before arriving at Highland, the bus stopped for a moment for a photo time. I was asleep on the way and when I opened my eyes, a jaw dropping scenery spread before my eyes. The snowy scenery of Scotland, with many rocky mountains, was really unique. The clear color of the sky and snowy landscape of the rocky mountain were harmonious and marvelous that even looking at it directly it makes you wonder whether you’re looking at a picture.

At last we arrived at the town with Loch Ness, the highlight of Highland tour. The scenery of the town which was surrounded by the snowy mountains and lake deep as the sea was breathtaking. As soon as I arrived at the town the first thing that captured my eye was the boat dock. The boat you see in the picture is the boat I’m going to ride to see the Loch Less.

Finally, I’m on the boat. Let’s go! Loch Less is the biggest and the deepest lake in UK with 36km in length and 230m in depth. The Loch Less seen from the boat didn’t look like a lake but seemed more like the sea. The water is too deep that the color of the water was black and you couldn’t see the end of Loch Less.

Because of its enormous size, there are a lot of rumor saying that there’ a monster living inside. I just laughed when I heard that rumor but to see the real Loch Less it made me think there could be a real monster inside. The size of Loch Less was overwhelming and it was enough to stimulate the imaginations of numerous tourists.

While I was observing the scenery through the windows of the boat, I found this cute monster attached to the window. I took a picture of this cute monster and it seemed like the real monster living in Loch Less. And at the entrance of the town, there stands a big structure which embodies the monster. If there was a monster, they imagined it would look like it but to me eyes it just looked cute. The name of the monster is ‘Nessi’. How can it not be cute?

On the bus ride back to Edinburgh after seeing Loch Less, once again we had photo time. And there, we met children playing riding sleds. There are many hills in Highland that it seemed like if you just come out with a sled you can ride sleds everywhere. The snowy scenery of Highland seen behind the joyful family makes you admire
once again.

After ending a few days of travel to Edinburgh and Highland, lastly I wrote a letter on a card to my family which I bought as a souvenir. The drawing of the cow on the card is the Highland cow which lives in Highland, and the fur attached to the card is the real fur of Highland cow. Whether it’s true or not, goodbye for now!
