Since I’m sharing the Scotland trip, it’s important to talk about Glenlivet. There was a time when Glenlivet meant scotch the way Kleenex is used to mean tissue. (When your brand becomes a common word, you’ve really arrived.) This was my brother’s favorite part of the trip. We toured the distillery and then we went to the tasting room where this picture was taken. They start you off with the raw scotch directly from the distillery. It smells like grass and it taste like Everclear. Then you try a 10-year-old, 12, 15 and 25-year-old. Eventually you get to 40-year-old Scotch. ...
After my grandad passed away because of Alzheimer's, we scattered forget-me not seeds around calendar, which was a place he liked to visit. forget-me not is the flower that is used to represent Alzheimer's. We recently visited again to see if they had grown and the had spread like wild fire, they are all around the park. #photography#pictures

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” – C.S. Lewis These two beautiful humans Are two of my ultimate favs. They help to keep me balanced when I need it. They love me unconditionally, as I do them. They run with me, drink gin with me, eat cake with me laugh with me and cry with me. Long may these summer days last so we have many more days to make memories like these. #sophieshappyshetlanddays

A wee lay-by somewhere between Ullapool and Achiltibuie. Had a tiny beach to ourselves too (although, it was mingin’ weather, so we played dominoes in the van instead 🙈) . . . . . . #wildcamping#roughcamping
Another beautiful little beach, well worth a visit if you are in the area. This time we were at Port Stoth (pronounced stow) just beside the Butt of Lewis lighthouse. . It's not used as a port any longer but has lovely sheltered sand and very little visitors. All the materials for the construction of the lighthouse (between 1859 and 1862) were brought by ship and landed in Port Stoth, due to lack of road infrastructure. The port continued to play an important role in bringing supplies to the lighthouse until about 1960. . . . . . #bike ...
Imagine what people thought when knowledge of these stones creators was lost. What would you think if you found this in your Medieval garden? ⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰ Mormaerssaga.com
