It is near panic time prepping life to be left behind as we head to Scotland as a family in 6 days.
The to-do list is frankly lengthy and overwhelming. I keep telling myself to breathe. It only takes one thing at a time to tackle it.
The mundane things like setting up autopay for bills, stopping mail, stocking food for house sitter, cleaning everything… You get the picture. Time is a precious commodity that there is never enough of it seems.
6 people. 6 passports. One minivan rented. 5 different lodgings acquired. One custom semi-dress kilt to be picked up in Edinburgh. The anticipation alone is priceless.
In a few short days, I will be jumping up and down as we deplane in Glasgow. I feel like a 6 year old with money to spend in a candy store.
I want to see and experience ALL THE THINGS. My heart leaps at every thought forward. My heart home soon will be a reality.
I will be still blogging and podcasting Outlander related materials, along with daily trip posts and pray my internet is good while traveling.
The Twitter hashtag to follow my antics will be #ADOOScotland.
I hope you will come along and enjoy the with me and my family.

Are you coming to Lallybroch? Would love to show you. Will you be here on 25th April or after? Come and see new Mary Queen of Scots statue at Linlithgow Palace (Also Wentworth filming location. Can show you exactly where)
Oh please YES!
Where is Lallybroch?
It is close to Linlithgow, where I live. It is on a private estate so not always accessible- and they will be filming there again this year. But as long as I give advance notice we can go. It is next to Hopetoun House,the Duke of Sandringham’s home and close to Blackness Castle, Fort William, where they jump off in Episode 9. Drop me an email with dates you may be near Edinburgh or Glasgow and we can organise.
So very excited for you! I look forward to your updates. Have a wonderful time!
You will enjoy…there is no doubt. Scotland and its people are never to be forgotten.
Even the Scotch mist…You’ll hear Gaelic when you get to Skye and the further north you travel…Keep us posted as you journey through the magical land that is Scotland.
I have visited twice now and will again in September. Make sure you get to Culloden and find Jamie Fraser’s tombstone.
I love your site and am grateful you would share your families time in Scotland with us but take time for yourself to savor the experience. Stay safe and store up lots of memories.
How exciting. I know you’ll have a glorious time. How long will you be there?
Are you going to have someone record Outlander for you while you’re gone?
You’ll fall in love with Scotland, it’s such a beautiful country and it never leaves you, it really gets in your blood. Have fun
