We saw much of what makes Scotland, a real Scotland. Big cities to small villages were on the agenda. Falconry was a treat as was the shearing of a sheep. The support provided by the travel agent was a real hat off...when I left my dress shirts in a hotel was outstanding.
For me, there were so many moments that actually swept off my feet, but it had to be the sheep herding by the beautiful black and white border collies and their loving Shepherd. The dogs happily greeted us with tails wagging along with several of their puppies. With whistles, shouts and hand gesture the exuberant dogs were off to corral sheep grazing in the distance. Apart from this, there were some comfortable moments with the friendly locals that really made our trip more enjoyable.
