    Last day of Scotland

    June 28, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Last day we went to an old interactive museum where I nearly lost my left hand in a handwriting class. We went to a forest where a man built it to woo the ladies. Had some haggis for lunch in a nice little park overlooking a river. took a picture of 3 bridges built in 3 different centuries. Then caught the overnight bus to London.Read more

    Unser zweites Quartier ist in Pitlochry. Die Highlands sehen so ganz anders aus als Edinburgh und Pitlochry scheint ein super Städtchen für einen Drachen zu sein. So ein paar Seen hab ich schon entdeckt, jetzt wird's spannend. Wo ist Nessie? - AegonRead more

    Cairngorms to Perth

    June 10 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Simon had booked us in for a quad bike tour around the Rothiemurchus estate this morning so after breakfast we headed to the meeting point. We got there a bit early as we had to be off the site by 11am so enjoyed a nice coffee at the farm shop while we waited. Our guide for the quad bike tour was a lovely lady called Natalie. She started off my giving us a quick demonstration of how the bikes worked and then it was on with the helmets and we were let loose on the quads. After a couple of test laps we headed off, winding through the forest and across streams. We stopped every now and then and Natalie talked a little about the area and at one point to wait for the heilan coos to move off the path! There was some proper cute calves as well which weren't phased by the noisy bikes at all!

    Our next and final stop of our trip is Perth so after the tour we set off with a quick pit stop for lunch overlooking Loch Insh. When we stopped here we envisaged a tranquil picnic overlooking the loch however it was so ridiculously windy that we lasted half a sandwich before we sought refuge in the van.

    The campsite in Perth was very quiet and there were only a handful of people there. There wasn't much around but as we drop the van back tomorrow we packed up our suitcases and then Simon cooked up our final supper in the van, fishcakes, new potatoes and veg (the exact same meal we had on our very first night) which we enjoyed whilst watching lots of bunnies hop around right next to the van.

    Scone Palace

    September 3, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Was für ein Schloss!
    Sehr beeindruckend vom Inventar - Porzellan- & Elfenbeinsammlungen (Interressant vor allem das apfelgrüne Porzelan welches Arsen beinhaltet), alte Tapeten aus dem 18 Jhd., Portrait von der Familie, der Stuck an der Decke und an den Wänden. Ausgestopfte Braunbären, Elephantenschädel und und und
    Leider sind keine Fotos erlaubt. Nur außen in dem großen Park um das Castle. Dort gibt es erneut einen Irrgarten welchen Robin mit Abstand am schnellsten bezwingt.

    Huntingtower Castle

    September 3, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Die dritte Burg unseres Tages. Die sehr geschichtsträchtig ist - Verschwörung, Entführung sowie Mord und Todschlag an denen die Burgherren beteiligt waren. Maria Stuart und James I (Der erste König von Schottland und England) hatten dies u.a zu spüren bekommen.
    Die Burg ist sehr verwinkelt. Bemerkenswert ist hier, dass jedes Zimmer seinen eigenen Kamin UND eine eigene Toilette hat. Sogar im Dachgeschoss die Zimmer haben noch auf dem Dach eine Toilette - bemerkenswert für eine Burg aus dem 15 Jhd.
    Die zwei Türme (ehemals Wehrtürme), erzählen nicht nur die Geschichte der Bauphasen der Burg sondern auch von einer Liebesgeschichte. Welche durch einen beherzten Sprung einer jungen Adligen von einem zum nächsten Turm zu einem Happy End führte.
