Hello, as I explained in my previous article, for me, Scotland was a dream and this road trip was even beyond my expectations! You’ve been many to follow the trip on Instagram and Facebook (THANK YOU!) and now I’m gonna show you more photos and hope to create even more exchanges with you (please don’t hesitate to ask any questions and comment at the bottom of the article). In the next articles I will detail step by step this 11 days road trip in Scotland, to give you ideas and tips!
I arrived at Glasgow airport in the late afternoon, and the first stop was at Tesco to buy a sim card, which cost me £ 10. This is really worth it if you want to use your phone as a GPS throughout the trip and personally the card work the entire stay while it was almost all the time in use of datas (I won’t lie sometimes in places removed from almost all civilizations … of course no network!).
Then I went to the Europcar agency to pick up the car, a beautiful red sparkling Fiat 500! For 2 drivers with a discount (because booked via my Easy Jet flight) I got it for £200.
The road trip finally started: Loch Lomond baby! It’s very easy from the airport as the highway to get there is close by, and apps like Google maps or Waze make it even easier. After about 45 minutes drive I arrived at my first stop: Gare Loch.
The hotels were quite expensive near Loch Lomond, so I preferred to get away from it a little bit and spent my first night in the city of Garelochhead. I stayed at The Anchor Inn, which I booked through booking.com (you can get 10% off checkout if you book here). The room was perfect comfortable bed in a peaceful area and just what I needed to enjoy a beautiful sunset!
