looking for something?

Tuesday, July 19, 2016


When I was 10 this movie came out. I didn't understand who it was about exactly or what I would feel after watching it. But once I did, I was a changed person. 
The Queen made me love Queen Elizabeth, her home at Balmoral and everything about Scotland. I wanted to visit so bad. Then the opportunity arose, I would be studying abroad for two whole months in England, why not go? So when my parents flew in we took a short flight to Edinburgh and then drove into the Scottish highlands to visit the castle I had been dreaming about for ages. 
It did not disappoint. Everything about the grounds and the house were beautiful. The gardens were awe-inspiring, the house had some pretty tacky 80s hunting lodge feelings {but in the best way possible} and there was so much history to be learned. 
It makes sense why the monarchs have always loved their "little" getaway to the highlands...I did too-xoxo darling, Hayden. 
P.S. If you haven't seen The Queen, I would 10/10 recommend. It is about how the royal family, specifically Queen Elizabeth reacted after Princess Diana's death. 
P.P.S. Check back on Thursday for even more photos! 

Just a warning, it is a little difficult to find. But if you type it into GoogleMaps, trust that and follow their instructions. There are no signs until about a little less than half-a-mile away from the castle.

You may only go in the ballroom, the rest of the house is off limits, but the grounds are so stunning it doesn't even matter.

You can also stay on the grounds, I had no idea otherwise I would have made the fam do this!
