Fort William

Fort William

Fort William is a lovely town in the western Scottish Highlands, on the shores of Loch Linnhe, and the base for the ones wanting to climb Ben Nevis. On our day in Fort William, we’ve visited two tourist attractions, a museum and a castle, and we’ve done a bit of shopping. In the old part […]

Brodie Castle. Front view

Brodie Castle

I found out by chance of Brodie Castle. It was close to where we stayed in the north-east of Scotland, so we’ve decided to visit it quickly on the same day we left the east coast for the west coast. Brodie Castle was the ancestral home of the Brodie clan for over 400 years. Even […]

Abertarff House and Inverness

Abertarff House and Inverness is my second post from this wonderful city, with Inverness Museum and Art Gallery published a few days ago.

My bedroom

My Bedroom

I mentioned before that we were in the process of renovating the bedrooms. So, now I’m sharing pictures with my bedroom, the latest newly decorated room in our house, after the home office.

This month we’ve been on holiday. I still have plenty of blog posts to write with things I’ve seen on our trip to Scotland. It was amazing, I loved it. I can’t wait to go on another holiday in Scotland. While is not decided, of course, I think we are going to spend our time […]

Festus on Holiday

As earlier this month we’ve been on holiday in Scotland, Festus got his fair share of exploring. I wanted to share some pictures with him and ended up with 29! After careful consideration, the total number of pictures came down on a more appropriate 28. The pictures are in the order they were taken, mostly […]

Clava Cairns

Clava cairn is a Bronze Age circular chamber tomb, about 4,000 years old. There are a group of four cairns and three stone circles, in Inverness, Scotland. Besides this one, there are around 50 more similar cairns in an area round about Inverness. On a plaque it is mentioned that: “On the shortest day of […]
