20 Favorite Pictures From Scotland

If there were a yearbook for countries, I have no doubt that Scotland would be voted most photogenic.  This little country captured my heart and captivated me with it’s landscapes.  As we weaved our way across the country, we would be stunned by the most breath-taking view only to find an equally beautiful view around the very next corner.

On one particularly captivating hike, as I was clicking away, my sister said gently, “There’s just no way to capture it all, is there?”   and I had to put down the camera and remind myself to breathe it all in.  When people ask me how Scotland was, the first word that pops into my head is magical.  It was the trip I never knew I always wanted to go on.

Before I left, I had learned a few new things about my iPhone camera (thanks to Tammy Strobel’s Everyday Magic photography course), so I decided to ditch my regular camera and just rely on the iPhone for my pictures.  The following are my favorite 20 pictures…
