Get Me a Kilt-I'm Moving to Scotland!

Several years ago a girlfriend and I discovered this series of books. It was the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon. These books are fan-freakin'-tastic. I LOVE them. There are 7 in the series and each one is roughly 900 pages long. (I know it seems like a lot, but it goes quickly and by the end you're wishing there was more) I made everyone I knew read these books and soon we were discussing the characters like they were real people.
The books take place among the clans in the Scottish Highlands...a little after "Bravehart" times. A 20th century nurse, Claire, gets sucked back through time by a stonehenge-like rock formation. She meets a young highlander, James Fraser, and they fall in love. There is SO much more to this series but I don't want to spoil anything!
After reading these books I became interested in all things Scottish and eventually would like to visit the country. It seems like it's a beautiful country, rich in history...Oh, and did I mention the men?

Hello Ewan!
And my newest Scottish crush James McAvoy. Isn't he cute?
You may have seen this guy in P.S. I Love You, or The Phantom of the Opera. Let me tell you, this boy can sing! Aren't convinced he's sexy?
I give you exhibit B. Yep. That's a loin cloth. And look at those Abs!
Don't you feel like moving to Scotland with me?

I once dated a "Scot" - although, Sean Connery is a Scot, and he's, well, "Just Sean". Under the kilt, is the underroos, I believe. Does your husband know you have so many boyfriends?

Actually....I dated a "Scott" too! I knew you'd enjoy the pun.
