Living In Scotland

Living In Scotland-

The beautiful Kizzy is my guest today, she is such a doll. She has a lovely blog called the Dainty Dolls House where she shares her love of the wonderful and inspiring treasures in life. Art and quirky eclectic fashion & accessories as well as mystical unicorns can be found at her sweet blog. Her love of life and style shines through in every bit of her dainty dolls house.
KizzyHello there, I’m Kizzy from The Dainty Dolls House & I was so happy when Katherine invited me to be a guest on her wonderful blog. She left it up to me as to what to post about, so I chose to share one of my favourite places to get away to. Living in Scotland (though I’m originally from America) I have found there is an endless amount of beautiful places to escape to right outside my door, but one of my most favourite of those places is going to Loch Lomond.
loch lomond
It’s almost like an enchanted piece of land where the wind blows gently as the waves bellow out to and fro. Little ducks and swans gather together as if telling magical stories only they can understand. The hills surround as if enclosing you in it’s paradise. Little houses with  charming gardens full of treasures…no matter how stressed or tired you may have felt when you arrived, the loch’s soothing energies seem to vanquish it all within moments. You can walk along the water or take a venture through the forest of trees, there’s also a charming church that I love to walk through as some of the grave stones are so so very old, so I like to pay them a visit.

Loch Lomond is freshwater & stretches 39 kilometres (24 miles) long and between 1.21 kilometres (0.75 miles) and 8 kilometres (5.0 miles) wide. It’s depth range from 37 metres (121 feet.) to 190 metres (620 feet) deep. What is shown in the pictures is just a small taste of how big Loch Lomond stretches. I often love driving in the car and riding along the roads that wind around it’s beautiful shores.

As soon as I’m there I instantly forget time & no matter what season it may be, there’s no wrong or right time to go…it’s beauty is always there. It can get a bit crowded in the spring & summer time with tourists, but it’s never stopped us from going at that time. You can get food or ice cream and have a walk and take in all the majestic scenery, there’s an information center with lots to learn and enjoy. Having lived in Scotland for over ten years now, venturing to Loch Lomond always feels like the first time. I come back home feeling renewed and ready for life again. If you ever come to Scotland, I highly advise venturing here to enjoy it for yourself!! You won’t be disappointed!
