    Our castle stay!

    April 22, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    We (I) wanted to stay in a castle hotel. The difficulty was finding one to fit our needs; ie close to the train and to a town....Pitlochry had such a castle Fonab. We have a corner room and it is nice...we soon had our room looking like home...with socks and underwear hanging on the towel warmers.

    The thing is we are seldom in the nice room....we went to town, we went to the spa and swam, hot tubbed, steamed and sauna’d. We had dinner in the restaurant at the hotel....we had a beautiful view from our table.

    I tried to look sympathetic!

    April 23, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌬 7 °C

    This morning at breakfast Dianne stated that had wanted to look at a shirt for me; but we have not had any time for browsing let alone shopping on this trip!
    I tried to look sympathetic but my eyes started to smile and that turned to laughter. Busted!

    July 20, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Stopped here for lunch and buying of some souvenirs. We had a full hour here and the rain has eased. Will try to get photos as we leave, of the main street. Wee chuckle at Indian shop keeper with a Scottish accent. Reminded me of Heather saying she went into a dairy and found the same thing.

    Stopped at Culloden. Went for a walk to both battle lines and the heavens opened. In spite of that we'll worth the walk. We then by passed Inverness and headed for our accommodation.

    Birnham Wood and Pitlochry

    August 26, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 57 °F

    Leaving St. Andrews at 1:15 PM, we passed through Birnham Wood, a location mentioned in Shakespeare's play Macbeth. We passed a replica of the ship Discovery docked at Dundee. It was the vessel used by Robert Scott in his Antarctic explorations. It is also the last three-masted sailing vessel ever made in Britain for regular use. When we came to the lovely little town of Pitlochry we took an hour-long rest stop. We explored the town. I tried to find the local Catholic church, guessing that it would be old and historic. We finally found it nestled between the golf course and the World War I memorial. It was a modern pre-fabricated construction that was locked when we arrived. I took a photo through the glass front door.Read more

    Highland Games

    September 8, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Highland Games in Pitlochry bei perfektem Sommerwetter. Telefonmastweitwurf ist schon imponierend. Dudelsack-, Highland Dancer-, Hammerwurf-, Pipe and Drums-, Velo-, Sprint- Hochsprungwettbewerbe - und english Tug o War Chamionships. Volles Programm.
    Und ein neuer Weltrekord im weight over the bar (50 lb [pöunds] = 22.6796 kg auf 15 feet 11 Inches = 485.14 cm), das sei wie ein siebenjähriges Kind über einen Doppelstöckerbus zu werfen).Read more

    Even more of the Scottish Countryside

    July 12, 2012 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 50 °F

    On our way to St. Andrews this morning, we stopped in the wonderfully likeable town of Pitlochry. After St. Andrews (which is highlighted in the next post), we made it to our final B&B, back in Edinburgh.

    Pitlochry - Day 5

    April 25, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 3 °C

    Sad to leave Isle of Skye, it was short but fun! A big drive ahead and after attempting Smoked Kippers for breakfast we hit the road for Eilean Donan castle. This furnished castle was originally built in 300 AD ! It went through many changes before ending up in the hands of Clan Macrae, whose final refurbishment finished in the 1930's. It was great to see a castle looking how it might have centuries earlier, and it felt surprisingly cosy despite the exposed location. We then took a two hour windy road back down from the Highlands through more snow, feral goats and passed many sheep and the odd Highland Coow! A quick pit stop at Dalwhinnie Distillery and finally into Pitlochry a lovely traditional Scottish Village! Our accomodation for the night is in a somewhat grand old Scottish house! We had half an hour to get to Edradour our last Whisky Stop. A quick stroll down the main street and our day is done. Well almost just had to get our butts whipped by Georgia at Crib, then we all crawled off to bed!Read more
