We stayed at an "apart-hotel" which just sounds odd to me. But it just means apartment-like hotel rooms, i.e. kitchen and living room in addition to the sleeping rooms. We have found this is the ideal way to travel with kiddo in tow. Kitchen amenities provide us with a place to inexpensively prepare meals. And the seperate sleeping quarters from the television/living space is most helpful when putting a pre-schooler to bed a few hours before Z and I are ready to call it a night ourselves. Sharing a single room while travelling usually results in a kiddo who can't fall asleep early enough and a mom and dad hanging out in the early evening dark, pretending to be asleep in the hopes that the little person will give up trying to talk/play/read stories.

On the second day, we drove up to Loch Ness. Northern Scotland is very very beautiful.

On our last day, we visited Edinburgh Castle. Very cold and rainy, but impressively historical.

It was great to get away as a family. We are looking forward to our next holiday trip.
