The staff was great. The bar lively with good food (and cute bartenders). The breakfast was good. I could not say anything bad -- it was worth every penny.

... coming from the dry and smokey summer we’ve just left.
We came up on the land near Glen Coe and began exclaiming over the beauty and then climbed in elevation and into the mountains, and Rob got misty-eyed, feeling a connection to the land that he didn’t expect.

Inevitably though as it expands too far, and just like Icarus, it flies too close to sun (or the ever increasingly intoxicated feeders of the snake add on one too many stacks of cups) and it all comes crashing down, dowsing unsuspecting cricket ...
The day after the wedding, the three of us, Shilpa, I and Savinay (Shilpa's bro and the only driver) resumed the road trip. We couldn't quite decide where to go because there was absolutely no plan, I had no clue where to go in Scotland except the distilleries. So, we just headed out towards Edinburgh and on our way found the Glamis Castle. It is famous because the present queen of England lived there regularly during her youth. It was nice although ...
