Culloden, Newtonmore & Cawdor Castle.
Last post of my September 2015 Scottish road trip. By the way, I still have my last May Scottish trip and last London July trip to share with you. Did I already tell you that I’ll spend one month in Scotland from the 21st of October to the 21st of November this year? I am so excited right now! I just dream more and more about the day I’ll be able to move there definitely…
Culloden was a very emotional place to be. I literally cried. I nearly had a anxiety crisis when we were on the cinema: we saw how, in just few minutes, the English destroyed the weakened and exhausted Jacobite army. I felt also ashamed to be french, on how we could have helped more. Well, the battlefield museum is a must-see in Scotland, for sure. Huge part of history was made here, and I felt so impressed and powerless. I mean, so…. little!
Then, we visited Cawdor Castle. It was charming and I surely enjoyed the gardens: some parts were so frenchy, symmetrically and well-builded like Le Nôtre style; other parts so British! We went to Fort George as well. Very impressive!
