One of the most important parts of travel for a lot of people is to understand the country you're visiting. The history of Scotland is a dark one, but nobody brings it to life better than our @macbackpackers. The Battlefield of #Culloden is a vital part of Scottish history and should not be missed by anyone who has an interest in the history of our beautiful country 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Here's hoping we can show you our country soon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
  • 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿We're looking positively towards the future and can't wait to show you the beauty of our country once this crisis is under control. Together we can overcome anything 🌍
