Clan Cameron Museum. Outside

Clan Cameron Museum

When we arrived at the Clan Cameron Museum we were greeted by the friendliest dog we saw on our journey. He was eager for us to open the car door, so he could lick our hands. He was lovely and excited, despite being his 12th birthday. We found out afterwords that he was the dog […]

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 […]

Inverness Museum and Art Gallery

Inverness Museum and Art Gallery

Inverness Museum and Art Gallery is one of two museums I’ve visited in Inverness. It is a small but lovely museum. I picked some highlights to show, things that I found interesting. This wolf stone was carved around 1600 years ago. It was found in 1903 built into an old wall. It is amazing how […]

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

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 […]

V&A Dundee

V&A Dundee

V&A Dundee is a design museum in Dundee, Scotland, which opened in January this year. I was excited to visit it, considering how great is the V&A from London (I blogged about it in 2015, but I’ve been to the museum many times, I’d say around 5 times). Also, as I’ve been to the Design […]

Scone Palace

Scone Palace

Scone Palace is one of Scotland’s most important stately homes, the place where Kings were crowned and it was home to the Stone of Destiny. Some of the best known Scottish kings that were crowned here were Macbeth and Robert The Bruce. Unfortunately pictures aren’t allowed inside the palace, so I can share only pictures […]

A view of Markinch

Markinch

Markinch is a town in Fife, Scotland. It is a very small town, with a population a bit over 2,400. There is a stone circle nearby, thus the town was lived in for thousands of years. This picture is taken from Markinch Hill. There you can see some “mysterious terraces” made out of sand during […]
