A velvet quilt of verdant moors, jagged + rocky mountains, glistening lochs and colossal sea cliffs — this is the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Along with Edinburgh and the famed Loch Ness, Isle of Skye is one of Scotland’s top tourist destinations, and it’s no surprise why! People have been inhabiting the grassy knolls and scenic hillsides of this region for thousands of years and it’s come to be known as the land of fairy folklore. Almost everywhere you turn, fog rolls in and coats the ground – creating a mystical ambiance; rocks are meticulously placed in intricate designs… The place exudes an ethereal quality. It’s pure magic.
Seeking to start off their marriage with that touch of magic and avoid all the stresses of a large wedding back in the United States, Brittney + Eric chose to elope in Scotland.
