Travel Memories #26 – Islay, Scotland

Welcome to Travel Memories Week 26! We hope to post every week a photo from our past travels (before children included) that makes us smile and remember the moment. We love taking photos of our travels (especially me – Sam) so we thought we would start this little series and see where it takes us. Memories are so special and when we forget we can look back at all our photo albums and know that there were happy moments which we can cherish.

Our Travel Memories

This picture was taken on our recent trip to the beautiful Isle of Islay in Scotland. We were visiting for work related reasons. As we are a family business it meant I went away with the boys and my parents. My parents have been to Islay before and have previously told me how beautiful it was. I couldn’t agree more, and the weather wasn’t the best so I can only imagine it been more beautiful in better weather.

We had two whole days on Islay which involved 3 hikes. This was on our way to dinner on our last evening. The sun had come out and the water was so beautiful! Don’t you agree? To wake up to this view every morning would be so special, it is just a shame it is so far from our house! It is roughly a 3 hour drive and a 2 hour ferry drive from our house so to go often I think would be out of the question.
