I can’t believe that tomorrow is the 1st of August. It seemed the days went by so fast. July was good, I’ve read some pretty good books, see the end of the post for details about them. This month I’ve managed to achieve a few things and I’m quite proud, despite still waiting for some […]

Inchmahome Priory. Ruins

Inchmahome Priory

Inchmahome Priory is a must see if you are near Stirling. It’s a lovely ruin of an old priory, but what makes it very special is the fact that is surrounded by a lake. There are boats that bring tourists to the priory and the fee for this is included in the price for visiting […]

Clink Café is a very special coffee shop in Manchester. Not only it looks amazing, as you can see from the pictures, but their ethos and story is very impressive. Clink is run by a charity with a very noble aim, as is stated on their website: “The Clink Charity’s aim is to reduce reoffending […]

Highland Titles Nature Reserve

Highland Titles Nature Reserve

I never mentioned this before, but I have a title and so does my husband. About five years ago we became Lord and Lady of Glencoe, when each of us purchased a bit of land from Highland Titles Nature Reserve. Everybody that owns land in Scotland can style himself as Lord or Laird and Lady, […]

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. Entrance

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. I also mentioned a lovely story from Inverness in my June round-up, when I fed a crow. I will start with Abertarff House, a National Trust property that is free to visit. […]
