At the Zoo

We have just returned from a lovely short break in Scotland. We stayed in a small family run hotel in a fairly remote spot to the west of Stirling. It was so quiet and peaceful. The weather was kind to us and was warm and sunny on most days. 

I wore this striped skirt on one of the warmer days. The photo was taken in the hotel garden and I added a cardigan before we left for the day. I bought the skirt a few days before our holiday. I love the longer length and it only cost me £2.50. It has a Next label.

It was good to wear some different skirts and dresses now that we are well into spring and I think I only resorted to trousers once when we went for a walk.

We had some lovely drives out into the countryside of mid-Scotland where there is some magnificent scenery but probably the highlight was our trip to Edinburgh and the Zoo. It occupies a vast site and is wonderfully landscaped but hilly. It took us longer than expected to see everything but it was an amazing day and Hannah and Henry loved every minute.
We were lucky to get a glimpse of the male panda. He spent a long time munching bamboo on his platform but eventually came down for a wander.

If you are ever in Edinburgh a trip to the Zoo is a must!

  2. I love your midi skirt! Striped, floral, plain, I love all of them, really. I have a trip to Scotland planned for this September and I can't wait because I hear the most wonderful things about the countryside. I went to the Vienna zoo this past weekend and saw some pandas as well!

    1. You will love Scotland Kristin. You will need to go to the Highlands for the best scenery - and the autumn colours should be starting in September
