Visited the stunning Kelpies, walked to the top of the Abbey Craig Hill to have an in depth have a look at William Wallace Monument. Got enchanted by the green forest at The Hermitage Park in Dunkeld, visited a tiny fisherman village, and sang with our tour mates a number of the finest Scottish songs [including AC/DC].

We didn’t should nervous about something, from the second we arrived all went smooth and flawless. The Loony Dook is a 30 years old custom where thousand of “Dookers” or “Loonies” head to South Queensferry to swimming within the freezing River Forth.
