Scotland is for Selfies... especially at Castles
I started with the selfies even before departure. Here we are, having both sailed through security at our local airport with TSA Pre-check. Rusty had his paint box packed in his carry-on, which included a few tools and things, and that was enough for a special look-through and no TSA Pre-check for him on the way home. I had it, though, and I'm not ashamed to say that I used it. I was hot, I was tired, I comfortably waited for him at the end of that long, long line. Heh.
I started taking them at every castle we visited and next thing you know, the SCOTTISH CASTLE SELFIE SERIES was born!
Old Man of Storr (not a castle, but towering)
Eilean Donan Castle again (WC/coffee break)
Once in selfie mode...
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
across the street from Mackie's of Scotland - Ice Cream (also maker of good potato crisps, including Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper flavor) (when in Scotland...)
at Inverness Castle - River Ness behind us
in the rental car at Inverness, READY TO GO!
I have no idea where this is! Judging from attire and windblown-edness, it's somewhere on the Isle of Skye, maybe near Storr.
I think the smiles say everything that needs to be said here. :)
Urquhart Castle -- you went to Loch Ness! I love your photo series. Looks like you guys were having SO much fun.

I'm not even a fan of the word "selfies" and I don't think I've ever taken one, but I LOVE your series! Each and every one is fun, full of personality, and gorgeous scenery!

What a fun series of pics to remember the trip! My sister & I try do do a theme picture whenever we travel. First trip to Italy, it was in front of the hotel each morning (different one each day). We also have a series of toes in the sand/water from assorted shores.

Great selfies - they are hard to take, especially with 3 people! I'm intrigued by the state of each of those castles, some look well kept with modern windows and others are crumbling. So cool.
