Driving from London to Scotland is not a good idea, but still we decided to drive in. It was really tiresome driving the 405 miles through motorway from London to Scotland border. But once we reached Scotland, it was really fascinating to drive the way. The country side is greenish and hilly. The ride through the roads was like playing an NFS race, both the road sides are beautiful and a careless drive can cause a huge disaster.
We reached Glasgow at about 17:30 Hrs and decided to walk around the high streets. The high streets in Glasgow is not so exhilarating, it’s the same like most of the high streets with all the shops around. The next day as per plan we travelled to Gelenco and Lochness. Lochness is a lake flowing through Scotland which is originated from Atlantic Ocean.
It was a wonderful ride to Gelenco, Glenfinnan and Lochness. One side is hilly and the Lochness Lake on the other side. It was so awesome to drive that way. We went to Glenfinnan in the Morning. The Harry Potter rail via duct is over that place. They are running a train service over that viaduct and we waited their till 3:15 PM to see the train going over the viaduct. It horns when it reaches the viaduct to alert all the visitors.
After that we visited a castle located in the Middle of Lochness lake. Its a wonderful view of the Castle from the hill side road.
After that we went back to Glasgow to enjoy the night life of the High Street. The high street glows in the night with different colours.
The next day morning we had breakfast from the hotel and drive back home.
