5 year anniversary

The bad blogger returns for another sporadic post!

Saturday 6th September was our 5th wedding anniversary. We celebrated by going up north to stay at this beautiful guest host in Fortwilliam. Fortwilliam is the town located at the foot of Ben Nevis.
I have to say i have never been to the highlands before and i never really appreciated just how amazing Scotland is!! We were totally in awe of the scenery and didnt want to leave! I took this shot on route there at Glencoe. Imagine living in that house?!On Saturday we travelled further North to Mallaig and to Morar to see the "white sands of Morar" and wow this was the highlight of our trip. Look at this beach! It was incredible. My Canadian DH kept saying "i cant believe this is Scotland."Thats the islands of Rum and Eigg in the distance. And here we are on our anniversary, a bit older and wider (LOL) than we were on our wedding day 5 years ago (more wedding pics can be seen here)

Congrats on your anniversary.

WOW look at the scenery in Scotland, looks like you had good weather while you were there, and that beach is fab....

You share your anniversary with myself and my dh but we have been married a wee bit longer than you as we were celebrating 39 years. Our country may be very small but it does not matter where you go - the Highlands of Scotland, the Lake District, the Yorkshire Moors, the Derbyshire Dales right down to the Coast of Cornwall, all have there own distinctive yet very beautiful settings. We are so lucky to live in the UK for all we grumble about it lol.

Belated best wishes to both of you!
Your photos are excellent. I agree with your husband, I can't believe that beach is in Scotland. It's gorgeous!

Ooh - I'm very jealous, I love the Fort William and Glencoe area and have holidayed there many times. Hope you had a lovely anniversary and are keeping well.

Happy anniversary! We loved the Highlands and Ft. William, except we were driving on that highway up and down the mountains in the rain and sleet on the side of the road we don't normally drive on, so we were scared... I was driving, so I kept pulling off because I was going so slow I was driving everyone nuts. But it was worth every white knuckle moment of it.

Also, great wedding photo--what a cute couple you are!
