My Trip to Scotland


I’m going to some proper posts soon, don’t worry they’re not all going to be about me! I’ve got quite a few planned!

Last Saturday (29th) I went on a plane to Inverness, which is quite near the top of Scotland, and I stayed in a nice Premier Inn. At the airport I had breakfast at a restaurant and it was very filling! The flight wasn’t very long so I still had the day to spend once I’d got there.

The afternoon I got there we travelled to somewhere called Lossiemouth to see if it was a good place for my dad to take photos (he’s a photographer!). It was quite cold and windy. We also went to a small village called Brodie because, ironically, its my surname and it was quite weird seeing it everywhere! When I got back to the hotel, I went for dinner at the Brewers Faire restaurant/pub thing next door. I had chicken pieces and chips, which was also quite filling! In the evening, my parents went out to take photos and I stayed in the hotel. I had a nice bath and then I sat in bed and watched Harry Potter (which was on ITV that night, and also it’s my fave!!) with a warm ‘cuppa’ tea and a chocolate bar. I went to bed when that had finished.

The rock my parents went to when I was watching Harry Potter!

In the morning on Sunday, I went to breakfast at the Brewers Faire. I had egg, bacon & beans, half a slice of toast, a flapjack and a mini muffin! I went back to Brodie again so that I could look in the shop because it was closing when I went the previous day. I bought some tea and some fudge and a pack of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans from Harry Potter cos I just like it that much! We got on the road after that towards my aunts house. She lives between Kames, Tighnabruich and Ardlamont (it’s in the middle of nowhere so I don’t really know where it is!) on Arygil’s Secret Coast (to the west of Glasgow).

On the way we stopped off in Inverness town centre to look in a couple of shops. There were ordinary high street shops such as Primark, but also there were some Scottish shops. I got a Brodie tartan scarf and a bandage for my wrist as I had hurt it! The drive was very long and boring but it was made better by the fact I was reading Harry Potter (I promise I’m not getting paid to talk about Harry Potter!!!!!!).

When I arrived, I went straight to the hotel restaurant where my aunt and uncle work for some dinner. I had burger and chips! When I got back to their house I went to bed because it was quite late!

The next day my dad was extremely hungover so we didn’t do anything too strenuous! I had a scone for breakfast because my aunt and uncle have a pop up cafe next to their house and they had baked some to go in there! They have a pop up cafe right next to the only path that leads to this particular beach Ostral (i think that’s how it’s spelt!) bay, which is also known as Kilbride bay and it gets very busy at times so the cafe gets lots of business! I went to a local marina, Portavadie, for some hot chocolate. It was very nice!

When I returned to the house, my dad decided to sleep off the hangover so me and my mum sat downstairs. I took the time to make the Facebook page for this blog and make all the new graphics for the different categories. We went back to The Kames (the hotel) to have dinner. This time I had fish and chips. I went to bed when I got back.

Yesterday was the final day. I had a scone for breakfast again and then I had to pack. For lunch I had a burger from the cafe (look up Kilbride Farm Cafe!) and it was nice! We got on the road after that to Glasgow Airport so that we could drop off the car (it was hired) and check in to our flight. I had a Starbucks at the airport. I had a hot chocolate and a chocolate muffin! The flight was slightly delayed but not by much. I arrived back at Gatwick airport and then I had to catch the train. I had a bath as soon as I got home do that I could relax!
