Harry potter spots: Yes, friends, I have a princess fairytale dream and I’m a proud potter head. When I found out that Edinburgh was where J.K. Rowling wrote many of the HP books, I set to work finding the locations! I’m sad to report my husband is not part of this “cool” crowd (probably would be sorted into Slytherin, sorry Gus!). Unfortunately we did not go on a Harry Potter tour, but there are many available. Check them out here! The Elephant House: Where it all began, folks. In a tiny table in the back of an unassuming cafe, J.K. Rowling gave us the boy who lived. While I tried, and failed, to sit at the exact table, I was close enough to see Edinburgh Castle high atop the hill. Also, I totally went to the bathroom to check out the Harry Potter love notes other people wrote. George Heriot’s School: The inspiration of Hogwarts. Enough said. Greyfriars Kirkyard: Normally graveyards aren’t on my “must see” list. However, there was the challenge of trying to locate Tom Riddle’s grave. It took an embarrassing amount of time and following a group of girls that had international data plans to find it, but alas there it was. Note: This is an actual grave site, be sure to respect the grounds.Victoria’s Street: I know I mentioned this street earlier in the blog, but the street also inspired Diagon Alley. You can’t see it here, but there is a joke shop on the street, too!

There is so much to see in Scotland: Edinburgh is endlessly fascinating and the Isle of Skye's natural beauty is like none other on earth. The castles, historic monuments from famous battles like Culloden, the old Glenfinnan Viaduct (made popular as the place the Hogswart Express travels in Harry Potter), Portobello Beach and Promenade, the towering Hills of Glencoe, and the friendly people, make Scotland one of the best destinations in the world.

Country of rolling country sides, castles and highlands. White fluffy sheeps grazing the lush green farms are sight to eyes that are tired of concrete jungle. But walking on the cobbled roads of Royal Mile is also an enjoyable experience.

The Scottish Highlands are otherworldly. Everybody should visit them once.
