A 2-DAY TRIP TO LOCH LOMOND


Hi there.

Recently it was Mommy's and Dadda's anniversary so we went to Loch Lomond to celebrate. We packed our suitcase the night before and went straight to bed with all the excitement for the next day. We woke up early because we were going to the Marks & Spencer Factory Outlet first to buy some clothes and some snacks. After that, we went back to perform our Zuhur prayers and to pick up our suitcase and went straight to our first activity location, the strawberry farm for strawberry picking! We were so excited! We picked a lot of them. Mommy was so excited because she planned to make some strawberry jam. We also picked some raspberries but we didn't pick a lot.

 First, we get our own containers. 
There were 1kg containers and 4kg containers to choose from.




 Off we go to the Strawberries area!













 The farm is just next to the airport so we could see the planes parked, take off and land.

Exhausted after strawberry picking.😂

From the farm we went straight to our BnB at Loch Lomond. The BnB is called Whiteley's Cottages. It's situated in nearby Loch Lomond and the cottages were on a farm. There were horses there too! Our room was a cute and cosy studio, just nice for our little family. It had a room for Mommy, Dadda and Aysha but Idzhar and I slept on the sofa bed in the living room so we could watch TV till late, hehe... After freshening up, we decided to take a drive around Loch Lomond for sightseeing. We had a picnic at Loch Lomond shores and then played at a nearby play park called The Dinosaur's Den.

Before we went back to the cottage, Mommy wanted to buy some food for dinner so Dadda decided to drive to the nearest town to look for a grocery store. That drive took us to a Tesco in Helensburgh. The Tesco there was by the sea so before we went into Tesco, we took a walk at the pier to watch the sunset. The scenery was breathtaking!











Aysha was tired and asleep by the time we got back to the cottage.


The next day, after we checked out, we went to Ross Priory and Balloch Castle. We had another picnic at the castle area and then took a walk down to the loch and had a dip (well ok, only our legs) in the water. Then, we went to play at a play park in the castle area next to the loch before we drove back home. Here are some pictures to end the blog. Stay tuned for the next one! Bye😉


Took some photos in front of our cottage before we left.
