I love the way you've presented this shot. And it's a great shot too. Also the second time the Forth Bridge has presented itself to me in as many days. Maybe I'll win a trip to Scotland, Bonnie Land of some of my forefathers
Thank you very much May, and for faving it too of course! Perhaps the two views are an omen????? I'm sure you would enjoy a trip back to the origins of some of your kin, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to!
You're very welcome. It would be wonderful. I went to Scotland in my early teens. I can remember Gretna Green - and trying to get a note out of a practice pipe, at which I completely failed!!! I was a very accomplished recorder player at the time, but couldn't get the slightest sound out of that thing the piper handed me LOL We stayed in a camping area near Robert the Bruce's cave and I remember a building with some armour, dirks etc in it within the park. Also Loch Ness, and attending Highland Games. The heather of course, and the beautiful 'hairy cows'. I didn't know at that stage about my Scottish heritage but I am so proud of it now I do know!
I still have one earring that I bought at Gretna Green - it's a tiny horseshoe with a sprig of heather on it. Even though the other has been lost for years I've not thrown it away.
Fascinating story May We live about 30 miles north of Gretna Green, and regularly visit it as we are often up and down the motorway to Carlisle. I presume the camp site is this one? www.brucescave.co.uk/ Haven't been there, shame on me, it's in the same county as me to!! Loch Ness is further North, but I have visited it several times. As for the `Hairy Coo', this'll be one fav.me/d2sjek0 of them then??!! Still have my fingers crossed for your visit!!
It's amazing that we don't do the tourist things in our own home isn't it? We have an aquarium about 15 minutes drive from our house. It's been there for about 20 years and I finally went to it last year - and only then because my grandchildren wanted to.
I'm pretty sure that when we went to that camping site, the museum articles were in the big house. I remember seeing the suits of armour immediately inside the door, which I'm sure was a reception area. Thank you so much for the link, I wouldn't have thought to look for that. I didn't realise that Gretna Green was fairly close to that, and I hadn't realised that Loch Ness was so much further away.
I adore cows, but yes, hairy coos have got to be the best! S/he's so beautiful. And the Aberdeen Angus too!
