The Highlands of Scotland

From the moment that a couple decides they want to have a child, they synchronize all their energy in tune with the universe in order to fertilize and give life to that wonderful being that will accompany them for a long time.

Conception is such a sacred act in this world and the stressful lives we live in nowadays do not confer an ideal space of care, harmony, love and tranquillity that you need to realize your greatest desire – a baby.

This is why nowadays we go on a special a trip and choose a special destination that allows us to disconnect from the outside world. We try to forget the noise and stress that haunts our daily lives and learn how to reconnect with our inner self, with our physical and emotional sphere. This is just what we need to be able to conceive.

Before I got pregnant with my daughter, I travelled to Scotland and I can say that this was one of the best trips, a moment when I felt I have never been happier then at that particular time.

The mountains of Scotland, its lakes, its great castles, the Celtic influence; everything drew me to visit, but being there in person felt like I was in a magical place where time does not pass. At the sight of all these amazing landscapes, you immerse yourself in the pure energy of the great Mother Earth.

I have known cases of friends and colleagues who got pregnant after a trip to Scotland and now I understand why. The Scottish Highlands renew you, they make you connect with yourself and your partner at a very deep level. It is certainly an ideal destination for a short break for two where you can forget all about the daily stress and just enjoy each other.

How to get there?

Nowadays there are many low-cost flight options that take you to Edinburgh or Glasgow. I would recommend visiting both, although Edinburgh is spectacularly beautiful. Take at least one day to discover it.

From there the most comfortable option, and I would say also the most romantic option to get to the Highlands, is to rent a car. Driving on the left side of the road is an experience that must be tried at least once in a lifetime. You can go directly to Callander (the gateway to the Highlands), continue towards Fort William, Fort Augustus and drive along Loch Ness to reach the capital - Inverness.

Where to stay?

We stayed in Inverness in a Bed & Breakfast (B&B) called Glendoune that we had previously booked online. The small town is full of B&Bs as it is the most common type of accommodation in the area.

They are houses belonging to typical local families who decide to rent out rooms to tourists and in the mornings they prepare a spectacular breakfast. Yes, one of those full and hearty Scottish breakfasts which includes many eggs, sausages, beans (baked beans) or the typical Scottish sausage.

This type of accommodation is usually very affordable and comfortable. Most houses are so huge they look like real hotels. And if you are like us and big hotels seem too impersonal and cold, living with the locals will be a good choice. You will feel at home very quickly.

The good thing is that staying in the old part of Inverness you can spend your nights in one of the many small pubs with live music and drink and dance your way around Scotland and bond with your partner in a new and different way.

What to visit?

Once you're there you feel an overwhelming desire to go out and soak in all the purity of the Scottish Highlands.

There is so much natural beauty that surrounds you everywhere (lakes that look like mirrors, mountains with a thousand shades of colours, natural waterfalls, stone bridges arising from under the mountains, wild animals you've never seen so close). It is difficult to resist the temptation to not stop along the road hundreds of times to contemplate it all. It is the perfect time to be spontaneous. Spontaneity generates endorphins so go for it and enjoy it all!

Our daily plan consisted of a slow breakfast accompanied by our backpacks ready for anything that came along our way. Sometimes we had a picnic, just like the time we spent in a beautiful forest, where we saw the tallest tree in the UK, and other times we ate in romantic restaurants in small villages along the way.

Some of the outdoors trips we did and that I highly recommend are:

  • Loch Ness. You can even go sailing on one of the tourist boats.

  • Stroll through the typical villages of the area of Fort William, Fort Augustus or Aviemore.

  • Visit at least one medieval castle: Castle Kilchurn or Urquhart.

  • Explore the stunning island of Skye (where I recommend that you spend at least one night); they say it is the most beautiful of Scotland and it has all the reasons to be.

  • Take the Jacobite steam train for an unforgettable experience.

  • Visiting the Talisker Whisky distillery on the island of Skye is an essential part of your trip.

Although there are a larger number of sites to see and know, the most important is that whatever you do, enjoy it calmly, breath all the medieval energy that surrounds everything and connect with nature and your own self and let life flow.
