Hopetoun House

This weekend Summer finally came to Scotland! We took the opportunity to partake in my favourite summertime activities, snooping around heritage homes and gardens. We decide to visit Hopetoun House, just outside of Edinburgh for a stroll around the park and gaze out over the Firth of Forth.

The weather was so beautiful that I finally had a chance to... low and behold - wear summer clothes! Love were kind enough to send me this dress and just like Carrie I decided to wear it back to front, it just seemed to work better that way.

  6. These are some gorgeous photos Cait! I know what you mean about the weather, sometimes I think there's not much point investing in summer clothes that you only get to wear a few days a year! :(

    It look like you got a glorious day though, what a wonderful location to spend a sunny day!

  8. I love that dress, it's so perfect for summer! Hopetoun House is one of my favourite places around Edinburgh too, although I haven't been there in years. Have you been to Jupiter Artland yet? It's just out past Heriot Watt and it is so beautiful, I took some photos out there last weekend, although I haven't had a chance to publish them yet, but you should definitely check it out (http://www.jupiterartland.org/) xo

  10. I love that dress and I believe that if I had it I'd wear it on reverse as well! haha

    It is too fun to me that you say summer has arrived and that you're still wearing a denim jacket but hey, that's Scotland!

    My parents and I are planning a trip in early September, well, we are discussing where we should go and Edimburg is one of the options, I'll definitely let you know if we finally decide that :)
