Loch Levern (loch meaning lake) near the village of Ballachulish in the Highlands of Scotland. The loch and the mountains speak for themselves, so I’ll tell you about shinty; a popular sport in the village, because you should know these things.
Shinty is played by 12-men teams with a stick and a ball and is older than Scotland itself, predating Christianity. It’s been likened to field hockey and ice hockey although a player may play the ball in the air; and is enjoyed mainly in the Scottish Highlands and amongst Highland migrants. It sounds like fun, actually. Although I think I’d like Quidditch better. WHO WOULDN’T, sigh. (frank hendriks on flickr)

I seriously regret not having a little note book and writing the names of every place we went so I wouldn’t forget.

I don’t mean to sound ignorant, but this helps me out a lot.
For anyone who might be at all confused!
