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.

Wow, Blair Castle!
I was there when I was 11 years old.... Jamboree-- Scouts (children age 12-15)from more than 30 countries meeting for 2 weeks (and living on these grounds in tents)- very impressive childhood memoriy... I loved it!
I was only allowed to go because my older sister came too.
Thanx for awakening this special memory!!!
Greetings Veronika

Sexy blue stockings:-). The Scotch seem to be flexible with their stocking colours. I like that!
