The only rationale I can come up with is just in case we never get back, we need to make sure that we see everything we wanted to see.
We need to be more conscious the next time and perhaps even look for a car with a driver, who would know the roads and we as passengers could enjoy the travels and the scenery.
I enjoyed the availability of WiFi everywhere including in most restaurants. In general Scotland appeared to make better use of technology than Northern Ireland or the Republic.
The people were extremely helpful to us every place and made the trip even better. I have to admit I liked the people in the Highlands the most, their friendly helpful and smiling attitude, as they desperately tried to simplify the directions so we would not get lost again.
All in all it was a great trip even though we didn't see Nessie or any Leprechauns.
