Here are my five strongest impressions of Scotland.

1. It's cold, and it's wet. To misquote Mark Twain, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in the Inner Hebrides."

2. The only way to avoid stepping in sheep poop is to stay on the bus.

3. There is no Mexican food in Scotland. I don't know why this surprises me so, but it does.

4. The Glaswegian accent is charmingly unintelligible, until you're trying to figure out what the gate agent is saying at the airport.

5. Caledonia MacBrayne would be a great pen name for a writer of historial romances.

There will be stories of my Scottish adventure coming soon.

Love a travel journal! And the accent is even harder to understand and more charming if the lad is in a kilt.

I liked Inverness too....
