Wonderful Wednesday Personal Blog
We said a reluctant farewell to Orkney on a dreicht morning. We boarded the ferry just before rainfall. Unlike our previous passage from Aberdeen to Kirkwall, a 6 hour journey, this crossing from Kirkwall to Scrabster on the northern-most tip of Scotland only took an hour and a half.
As I glanced over my photos and notes, I wondered how I would fit all of this day into a single post. I can't. As with other posts, I decided to take my time and savor each step along the way. I really want to show you Dunrobin Castle today, so grab a cup of your favorite beverage. You're going to enjoy this.
Shenanigans with Thorfinn the Mighty on the ferry. Just for grins.
I just returned from a fantastic tour of Scotland with the two best tour guides in the country, Jim and Susie Malcolm.
If you're a fan of Celtic music, you may have encountered Jim on one of his tours of the US (and you'll be excited to learn Susie--and perhaps his brother, Scott--will be touring with him in the future!). Their Scotland tours are full of history and charm, music, and a wee dram or two.
If you're interested in how I spent the tour, read on and check back for new episodes, as I couldn't possibly put everything into one blog post. You'll find photos of the places we visited, notes about the tour, and maybe a giggle or two.
Let's get started! Enjoy!
This is where I talk about things in my life outside of writing. Mostly gardening and dogs.
