    Bei meinen Hörnern!

    Da liegt man weiß der Geier wie lang auf der Lauer und wenn man sich mal 5 Minuten ausruhen will... Aber ganz egal, darf ich euch meine aquatische Verwandte vorstellen: Nessie, das Ungeheuer von Loch Ness! Ich glaube, ich überrede sie, mit uns ein bisschen Urlaub zu machen. - AegonRead more

    Loch Nessie

    July 14, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    After visiting the impressive Culloden Battlefield, sight of the last big battle on British shores we went in hunt of Nessie. Although we weren't successful we did find a lovely place to watch the Wimbledon final in the afternoon sun, and ended up with a table crowded around my phone watching England win the Cricket World Cup!!! (seemingly we only win things when we are in Scotland, as we were here on that momentus day in 2003.Read more

    To Edinburgh day 57 Mon 18 Jun 2018

    June 18, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌬 13 °C

    Dry and cloudy morning in Drumndrochit at Greanlea bed and breakfast. Breakfast included a true Scottish “sausage” without skin shaped like a square pattie and made of beef. Drumnadrochit has a number of short walking trails as well as long distance paths to Inverness and possibly Fort William. Enjoyed a Loch Ness boat trip on a modified 31 foot work boat that handled the metre high chop in a stiff 25 knot “breeze” with little fuss. The skipper really knew his boat and the area he was operating in. Loch Ness is 17 kilometres long and acts as a wind tunnel. The Loch is deep and is the place where two tectonic plates meet so the the land on one side is 200 million years older than the other. Took lots of photos of the Loch and the Urquhart Castle ruin dating from the twelfth century. Afterwards Yvonne purchased some more sheep oriented coasters so now we have six. Drove on to the Culloden battlefield site and walked around. Last battle fought on Scottish soil on April 16, 1746. Very sad. Lunch of a Scottish pie at the cafe.(Minced spiced beef). Yvonne found her Outlander cookbook in the shop. Then on to the nearby 4,000 year old Bronze Age Clava burial cairns each within its own standing stones circle. More photos, and on to the Highland Folk Museum. Tom Tom guided us to a boundary fence down a private road. Located the main entrance ourselves knowing where the property was. The seventeenth century village used in the Outlander series was outstanding. We left when the weather turned cold and wet. Long drive to Edinburgh and Tom Tom took us right to our accommodation at Dorstan Guest House. Yvonne helped me to reverse into a particularly difficult parking spot. Dinner in a Hotel nearby.Read more
