Do you think that these cliffs on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, resemble a kilt? 😁 Funnily enough these basalt columns perched on sandstone are actually called the Kilt Rocks! Standing 90 metres high, some even argue the rock formations appear like a highland tartan 💚 Regardless, the sight is pretty stunning! What's one of your favourite rock formations? 🌏 #traveltheworld #theinvisibletorusitway ~

Expectation vs Reality: Have you ever visited a place purely because you saw it on social media but it's turned out to be a travel fail? 😆 If you're on Pinterest you may have seen the popular "Fairy Pools of Scotland" image. I did, and added it to my Scotland itinerary... Only to discover after an hour of walking through quagmires on the dreariest of days that it looked absolutely NOTHING like the image on Pinterest! 😒 What's been an expectation vs reality moment on your travels? 🌏

✨ Confession: I'm totally obsessing over "Outlander" right now! It's so interesting to learn about history though a TV series - sometimes you learn more that way than you ever did at school 😆 Does anyone else sit there watching whilst checking Wikipedia for historical accuracy with shows like this? Please tell me I'm not the only one! 🙈 By the way, here's another image of my ancestor's castle in Scotland. My clan is mentioned in "Outlander" ✌️🌏

Castle Tioram: Spellbinding Fortress of the Scottish Highlands

What small thing has made your heart sing on your travels? When I was younger my family and I would eat from the same dinnerset each night - beautiful stone plates adorned with hand-painted Scottish thistles. My grandfather had bought the set for only a few pounds some decades ago from a small town near Edinburgh ✨ I'd never seen these in real life until I found them growing near my ancestors' castle in Scotland 😍 (link in bio). These colourful little thistles literally made my heart sing…

🏰 Castle Tioram is the enchanting fortress of the Scottish Highlands you've probably never heard of! 💥 I was teleported back in time, like an episode of “Outlander” when I visited...

What's your most memorable travel experience? ✈️ Visiting Castle Tioram is definitely one of mine. Even though I live on the other side of the world I had an overwhelming feeling of being at home, right there next to this castle ruin overlooking Loch Moidart in the Scottish Highlands. Have you ever visited where your ancestors lived? I'd love to know! 🌏 #traveltheworld #theinvisibletouristway ~

On freezing cold days like today, I really curse the Facebook "On This Day" feature 😭😭 This is where I was exactly 4 years ago - jeez time flies! 🏃 I took a day trip from Athens to Cape Sounion, the site of this ancient Greek temple of Poseidon. He was the God of the sea in Greek mythology. Today it's a magical place to watch the sun set over the Aegean 🌅✨ What Facebook travel memory makes you wish you could teleport back there in an instant? 🌏 #traveltheworld #theinvisibletouristway ~

That water though 😍 If it weren't for the driver I hired for a day in Athens, I'd never have known this this lake existed just outside the city! 💚 Engaging with locals is key to helping you get the most out of any trip. Not only is their knowledge invaluable, you're also doing them and their city favour by supporting local jobs and businesses. Where has supporting local paid off for you? 🌏 #traveltheworld #theinvisibletouristway ~
