Loch Ness, Glencoe & The Highlands

What is the best way to get to a glimpse of Scotland in a day? 
The Scotland Highland Tours!!!

We were in Glasgow for about 3 days. It's pretty impossible to cover the whole Glasgow let alone Scotland in this short period of time. The best and most practical way to explore Scotland in a nutshell would be to go on a tour around the highlands. It was a last minute plan, we called the tour agency on the night before the tour and luckily we managed to get a place.

We chose to go on a 1-day tour covering Loch Ness, Glencoe and The Highlands. It was a wonderful tour with the best tour guide. The Highland tour by Timberbush Tours is highly recommended and not to be missed when you're in Scotland. We had a wonderful experience exploring this beautiful piece of land. We didn't just manage to cover the planned routes on the tour but also extra routes that gave us the opportunity to experience feeding wild deers and highland cattles. Simply Amaahzzzinggg!

The route started at 8.00 am from George Square, Glasgow. Below you can see the route map.

From the departure point, we traveled to Inveruglas on the shores of Loch Lomond for a brief stop.

Amazing view of one of the settings in James Bond Skyfall film.

Feeding wild deer

After the lovely feeding session with wild deer, we climbed through the Highlands, over the majestic landscape of Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount to Glencoe. We stopped at the beautiful great valley of Glencoe. There was a bagpiper playing to set the mood. It was such a magnificent experience.

After that, we made our return journey to Glasgow. It was seriously an awesome experience exploring the highlands. I believe that this is the most beautiful place I've ever been to. Scotland has a lot to offer especially the magnificent views of it's Loch (Lake) and Ben (Mountain). We had a wonderful time and would love to come again to Scotland and explore other tours of this amazing land.

Stay tuned for the next post..

Billy Potter goes around London!

Billy Potter ke tidokkk?
Yang penting sanggup beratur panjang untuk pakai scarf Gryffindor and ambik gambar camni ok.. :p

Hello y'all...I'm back in London!!! And this time I took Nadira along with me. As you all might have known from my previous posts on London, I really adore this city. London has a number of tourist attractions, shopping spots and variety of restaurants to choose from. I'll never get bored of going to this city. There are a lot of things for you to do and amazing new things for you to explore.

Arriving in London was a bit stressful as there was a game going on that evening and as result, the public transport was crowded with people. Imaging being pushed and pulled while dragging our luggage to get to the exit. Haish...So the first thing that we did after resting and freshen up for a while was finding a good place to eat. 

I'm gonna share the photos that we took chronologically...

Sangat teruja dapat makan kat Tinseltown sebab kat sini boleh dapat western food halal..Kenikmatan terasa dapat makan lamb chop!! Njam Njam!

Regent Street
After visiting M&M's World, we took a walk along Regent Street, mesmerized by the magnificent architecture of the buildings and the colourful lighting that enhance it's beauty.

On the next day, we went out early and headed to Trafalgar Square. I've never been to Trafalgar Square despite the number of times I've gone to London. Before this I just went pass the Square while taking a bus tour. This time, we did a number of photo shoots there.It's a really nice place to hang out and enjoy the sun...Oh rinduuu...

Horse Guards
Every day there'll be a parade "Changing of the Guard" taking place here. We didn't miss the chance to see this parade. We arrived quite early at about 10.30am and waited to get a good spot to take pictures when the parade started. It was an exciting experience but became quite boring after 10 minutes...:p
