Uni Life - A Getaway To The North

We have finally decided on our Getaway!

XtraBerryBec , SpicyIrvine , GeryLing , Ruifeng and Junio

Will be heading to Glasgow on the 20th March 2009! Yippie!!
Just to visit XtraberryBec! Proud?* Don't forget my souvenir alright? =P
Glasgow. The largest city in Scotland and the third most populous in the United Kingdom! Largest but not the capital of Scotland! lol. It is Edinburgh! ha-ha.

The best way to travel around scotland and have the most out of the beautiful pristine landscapes, you got to drive up. Hopefully Junio will successfully rent a budget car (7-50 pounds), as she is the only one aged 23 above among us! ha-ha. Why did UK change the rules? Even buying alcohol needs to be aged 25 and above! My God! What happened to "young and dangerous?"
Now, shall we venture far north to Inverness or stay in Glasgow?! Inverness, a place where two great attractions located, Loch Ness and Isle of Skye! (The picture map above is the location of Isle of Skye, left side of Scotland, Loch Ness is located North)

Loch Ness... remember the dinasour movie? The Loch Ness Monster?
Loch Ness is a large and deep freshwater loch in the Scottish Highlands.

Isle of Skye... If you do read lots of story book / novels, you probably would have came across this name before! he-he.
A place with endless breathtaking scenery. The largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. I demand a getaway there!
Superb Scenery....

If we drove... are we able to find our way around the mountains? :S

I just hope the GPS works? In such "ulu" places...

Ha-ha-ha. Let's hope we managed to rent a budget car before i get over excited!

Smiles* I hope i can sea seals and whales at the ocean. Boat rides cost are killing.. 40+pounds? That's RM 250+ per person! lol. I will tell you whether it is worth a visit after the 22nd when i am back in Newcastle. Anybody been to any of those two places before? Isle of Skye or Loch Ness? A guide will definitely be helpful!
