Snapshot Monday: Scotland
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Here are some shots from my travels around beautiful, beautiful Scotland. The shot above is of the piper on the border of England and Scotland.
And below is a picture of part of the famous Rosslyn Chapel (Da Vinci Code). It was undergoing restoration work while we were there, so we got to watch some of the restorers at work.
Below is a scene from the Highlands. It was an amazingly clear day when we went up - you could literally see blades of grass reflected in the water, it was so calm.
The next picture is from Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye.
Below is Blair Castle - the grounds and the building are beautiful, and its fascinating inside, especially the entrance hall which is set up to display hundreds of weapons!
And, for a historical romance fan, no visit to Scotland would be complete without stopping off at Gretna Green! Here's me posing ;-) The famous Blacksmith's Shop where the weddings took place is the building in the background.
