Our first night in Scotland was at the Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel at Aberfoyle, near Loch Lomond. The hotel setting is stunning as it sits on the shores of Loch Ard. I had no phone signal while we were there and I couldn’t get onto the hotel wifi. So I was quite cut off from the world, and it was wonderful. It certainly didn’t matter when we took evening drinks on the terrace and admired the view. And when we were hungry, we headed into the restaurant for dinner and still managed to enjoy the view because it had windows all round. We only stayed the one evening, but it set us up in the right mindset for the rest of our trip.

I’ve had some of the best food and service ever in Scotland. Looks like you’re well on your way to a memorable trip. Enjoy!
Yes. This looks like the perfect beginning to a trip and a great reminder to actually “vacate” your regular life when you take a vacation. 🙂
I like that – vacating my regular life, which is of course what a vacation is. And it’s liberating to be relieved of the electronic connections.
