Day One we loaded up the camper and made it into the Highlands. The drive was snowy and cold, Philippa slept and Sebastian and Katharina shouted out every semi (here, "lorry") we passed. We drove through Inverness, straight down the loch and spent Monday night camped on Loch Ness. We warmed up Tuesday morning with fruit and omelettes, and espresso for Peter, made on our little stove, before hitting the road.

  2. My heart aches every time I see your pictures of Scotland... I have been infatuated with the country for as long as I can remember, I long to be there. Your pictures are beautiful, and oh my goodness, your children are THE most adorable babies ever!!!! <3
