Scotland was wonderful! There are old (the whole place is old) stone buildings and fences everywhere. A lot in ruins, a lot of repair going on--very nice to see they are doing their best to keep these old, old places up the best they can.
It's a toss up whether there are more sheep than churches in Scotland. I can only imagine the work that went into gathering stones to build all the millions of feet of 'fencing' and the buildings!
I loved the highlands, but the west coast was my favourite I think. I'm going to post a few photos here of the beginning of the trip. I will be sorting through the lot and be posting more.
We started in Edinburgh.
Walking around before the tour started.
We could see Edinburgh Castle from our hotel window :)
The Rosslyn Chapel
Toured Glamis Castle and sat outside for lunch.
I will be back to post some more pics later today.
