Itineraries and Butter Tablet: Giveaway

Posted by on 22 August, 2013

Hoppin’ on a plane next Tuesday and starting to feel that buzz. You know, when you’ve ticked most of the stuff off your to-do list, figured out what you’re bringing, and counting down sleeps? Yeah I’m so there.

So I promised to do a giveaway of some sort since this trip is all about spending time with my awesome brother, but also to gather research for Promised to the Highlander, Enemy of the Highlander, and a new series as well.

Here’s what we’re gonna do. Below is my itinerary:

Sept 1 – Rosslyn Chapel/Peebles
Sept 2 – Stirling – Stirling Castle & William Wallace Monument
Eilean Donan Castle

Sept 3 – Callander – Balquidder/Fort William/Kyle of Lochalsh – Pictish brochs Dun Telve & Dun Troddan at Glenelg that evening
Sept 4 – Eilean Donan (Dornie)/Tongue
Sept 5 – Tongue – Castle Varrich and area
Sept 6 – Golspie – Dunrobin Castle/Inverness

I will post as often as I can from each destination with pics and vids and a description of the location plus the tie into the series. And I love hearing from you so once I’m back, I’ll compile all the comments and pick one person’s name out of a hat who will win a nice prezzie from Scotland. Don’t know what yet, but it will be fun for me to look for the perfect souvenir while I’m away.

I’m already drooling for butter tablet. Anyone have any requests? LOL

    Wow, I’m totally psyched for you and totally jealous. I recognize so many of the sites you’re visiting from my research. Macallan’s. Stirling. Dunrobin. Wow. So jealous. Posted the excerpt you read (flashback to Paris) on my blog tonight in new context. Thanks so much for reading and giving feedback.

    Excellent itinerary Kate! Looks real familiar. 😉

      Heeeeeee. Oh there’ll be waaafles. And yes my motto is if it’s not broken don’t fix it. I’m adding to our itinerary instead of changing it. I think Glenn will love seeing these things as much as we did. Plus I want to see them again and I get to experience some new places like Tongue.
