Off to Scotland

Call us crazy, but Dan and I are taking Zahara for a week-long road trip to Scotland. Yes, she's only 3 weeks old, but no time like the present--right? We figure, if all she's doing is eating, sleeping and pooping, she can do that anywhere. We might as well make the most of Dan's leave.

We have a pretty relaxed schedule with a ton of flexibility built in. We're well aware that our little dictator bundle of joy sets the pace. As long as we make it to a hotel each night, we'll consider the trip a success.

Day 1: Harrogate to Loch Lomond
Day 2: Fort William
Day 3: Isle of Skye
Day 4: Isle of Skye
Day 5: Loch Ness and Inverness
Day 6: Glasgow
Day 7: Home

The longest days of driving are the first at last; each should take around 5 hours. Every other day is only a couple hours drive. The Scottish Highlands are supposed to be absolutely breathtaking, so the majority of what we're doing is just admiring nature. I think it's definitely do-able. Wish us luck!
