So I don't want everyone thinking my entire summer was consumed by farm trips and exciting family visits; Brian and I did get to enjoy some quality downtime and explore new parts of Scotland together!
We recently took the train west of Edinburgh to the town of Linlithgow. Here sits Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. The medieval palace has been wonderfully preserved and there are stairwells leading to dozens of different hidden rooms everywhere you look! It was a fabulous day trip!

Excited to see what adventures are in store throughout the fall!!
