On our second day exploring Scotland I was keen to go to one of the local towns. Whenever I travel to a new place I love to explore the little towns and villages and have a wander, discovering cute little shops on the hunt for a trinket or two to take home.
Our first stop was in small town called Callander. We had a stroll through the town and discovered the most amazing old fashion sweet shop called Waltons.
Shops like this make me kinda nostalgic because they make you feel like a child again. Although it doesn’t remind me of my childhood, I grew up getting a bag full of penny sweets from the news agents with my pocket money, way back when Freddos where still 10p.
Another cute little place we visited was an ice cream and sweet shop called Sweeties, they had these amazing wafer ice cream cones dipped in chocolate and popping candy… soo good!
After we’d had our wander we went and sat by the river. And wow was it stunning, the day was so bright and sunny so of course that lit up the water a gorgeous blue. It was so beautiful there, you could see the mountains and fields off in the distance, and there were sheep grazing on the other side of the water and swans and little ducks splashing about, bliss!
We then headed off to Loch Katrin,
If you ever visit Scotland you need to go here, it honestly looks so beautiful its surreal. It’s just so vast and the view of the huge hills around the water is breath taking.
This definitely won’t be my last visit.
