Join Wanderful: A Sisterhood of Women Travelers

In fact, the idea of landing in such a big city and being completely on your own is a bit daunting. Still, you have always wanted to go there and aren’t ready to give up the idea.

Glencoe Cottages

The magic of Scotland lies in its hills – and people. In finding one of the places we’ll stay in Scotland, I searched long and hard on HomeAway Holiday Rentals. I found the perfect place in Western Scotland, in Glencoe, called Glencoe Cottages.
