Scotland 2016 / Travels in the United Kingdom

Dunkeld and Birnam/The Hermatige

What a beautiful town.  They are very close to each other well I was so happy to stay there!  First, I stayed in a lovely Hostel.  Jessie Mac’s.  My room was cozy and clean. Tea kettle, a quick snack upon arrival and my room was warm  

Dunkeld and Birnam 5 May 2016

It was so nice there.  The ladies in charge were friendly, welcoming and entertaining, I found out later that night that Brenda one of the owners, was playing at the local pub with the town’s musicians.  It by far was the highlight of my trip.  I had wanted to find a local pub, local food, local people and local music.  I found all of that at  I was in heaven.  The beer was good, the music was awesome and the environment was just wanted I wanted!!! I recommend coming here if even in this lovely place.  I thought I had some video, but alas I can’t find the darn thing!

I spent two days here and for sure need to go back.  So much to see as far as hiking and long walks.  I went to The Hermitage.  Beautiful. To think that this place was intended originally the Dukes of Atholl in the 18th century!  It truly was magical as the website suggests.  Kept looking for wee folk.   

I felt like I was in an enchanted forest.  I walked from the hostel, let me remind you, I always wore my ass-kicking boots, compression socks, wool socks and long johns under my clothes.  Everyday!.  What a California wimp.  I did not want to get cold.  I had my thin raincoat at all times and two layers of tops, in case of the weird chance that I could get warm.  That only happened on the Isle of Skye.  That day was really a warm day!  Hiking through these beautiful woods was so peaceful, except for my heaving breathing, lol.  

I recommend taking this hike.  Apparently, it is very popular.  It was once of the places I researched and was so happy that I did.
