As a MacKenzie who grew up attending Scottish highland games clad in a kilt of the MacKenzie tartan, Blake's had a lifelong dream of going to Scotland. As a soon-to-be MacKenzie, Greg's 100% on board.
We don't have an exact itinerary nailed down yet, and it party depends on the time of year we go--hence, the gofundme. However, we're going before we buy a home (and anyone who knows Greg knows he's itching to buy a home), so we promise your gift will be used soon!
Here's what we hope to do.
Edinburgh: Scotland's Capital, home to castles and beautiful buildings, where J.K. Rowling first penned Harry Potter. We'll explore the city, do some good hiking, possibly check out a pipes and drums exhibition.
The Highlands: Home of the Clan MacKenzie's territory, where we can visit the city Inverness, tour Loch Ness, take the Jacobite Steam Train (the Hogwarts Express), get in some exceptional hiking, etc.
The Isle of Skye: One of the most beautiful islands in Great Britain, where we can visit Portree, the tiny fishing village Blake's ancestors emigrated from, as well as some excellent hiking and views.
Possibly: Glasgow, the quirky, largest Scottish city, an excellent mix of the old and new. London, where we'll spend a day touring the Harry Potter studios and maybe visit the Buckingham Palace, but the rest is for another trip.
Scotch: We'll find it. We'll drink it.
