I drove up through Glasgow, Scotland through the Highlands and on to Inverness during the summer. Scotland was a great drive, rolling countryside and the highlands were covered with a purple flower (the Scottish Heather I think) at the time making it even more beautiful. Most of the trip was a winding single lane road with a remarkable amount of construction and proceeding at a nice slow pace. It was a great pleasure driving at a leisurely pace through the Highlands, admiring the scenery.
The following pages go into more detail regarding my road trip and what I saw along the way. Something I found quite interesting was the accent seemed to change as soon as I crossed the boundary between Scotland and England. I stopped at a rest area as soon as I entered the country to get some coffee and look at souvenirs. I had recently stopped for gas on the English side and noticed the accents were a bit different from that in Huntingdon where I lived. And, the Scottish accents were even more pronounced which I loved. Of course they poke fun at me because of my “American” accent so I guess it depends on who you are.
I loved the Scottish accent on a woman, it sounds so pleasant. Anyhow, take a look at my Scottish road trip and tell me what you think.
