Well I leave in 5 days. Looking forward to it. Anyone have any idea what the weather is supposed to like for the next two weeks. Hopefully sunny and in the 70s, unlike Massachusetts where it is wet and in the 60s. Now if I could just get those people that plan to protest the G8 summit in Edinburgh to skip it, i am sure it will be a really great visit. Either that or I will be spending more time in the Highlands taking in the scenery.

I just checked the weather report. I am going to have more hot weather here in Mass. then my trip there. I will make sure I pack a little heavier than I want to. Oh well, I have a digital camera with enough batteries and enough memory to capture over 500 pictures. Let's take them all.

Well I am back. Not to my liking though. It was beautiful over there and only rained one day. Got really lucky. After I put some captions on the pictures I will post them.

I will write more later today as I have 14 hundred things to do before I leave again tomorrow.

Ok, sorry it is coming so late. Been doing soccer camps and starting a new job in Maine. Here is the link to my pictures.

It was great time with only one day of rain and I was inside that whole day. The Bed and Breakfast places are the best. Great people and don't get me started about the breakfast that they served. Though the baked beans thing scared me a bit. I am already planning on my next trip next summer.

Enjoy,

Brian

Wow! Great, outstanding pictures, Brian. I felt like I was touring Scotland myself! I know it is a real pain to upload all those pics on Shutterfly, but will you be labeling some of the pics that weren't? Did you get to Inverness and Culloden? How far north did you go? Glasgow looks really busy. What was the BOB festival? That War Memorial in Glasgow. What was that in honor of and whom?

Thanks so much Brian! How many days were you there again? Did you feel like you saw a lot? Scotland is so beautiful. Gosh, hopefully I will get there next fall but if I do, hubby may be going home alone! biggrin.gif

Your photos are great! I live & work in Glasgow but its fascinating seeing things I take for granted through someone elses eyes.

Im glad you had a good holiday. I see you visited Largs. I think its one of my favourite places smile.gif

Can you believe I actually know one of the Police Officers in your photo!!! lol

CR,

The BOB pictures were the Battle of Boyne Protestant March. Funny story about that day. I had the choice of 2 jackets to wear into Glasgow, both were Adidas. One was green and the other blue. The blue one won because it was a zipper down. I could just imagine walking and watching the March wearing Green. I don't think I would have made it out alive. Oh the things you learn about other cultures. I did have a good chuckle with the Concierge at the Hotel I was staying at especially when I asked him before leaving if there was anything exciting going on. Also during the March, The Glasgow Jazz Festival was going on. Two very different styles of music that day. As for the War Memorial, it was there to pay respect to all those that have fallen in battle for Scotland.

I had a great 14 days there in Scotland. 3 in Glasgow, 6 in Largs and the rest traveling from Fort Williams to Inverness to Aberdeen to avoiding the G8 Summit and all the idiots that decided to protest one thing or another. I did too much driving but I wanted to see as much as possible. The next trip will be more of stopping and really visiting the sites. I took some of those pictures at 60 miles per hour. Taking my backpack and a good set of walking shoes may be in order next time. I look forward to seeing Scotland again really soon as I am already planning my return next summer. Met a lot of great people and I want to stay in some more B&B places. They are awesome.

Sandy, I have that same problem. I lived in Chicago for a number of years growing up and really only saw the good stuff when friends would come in to visit. It is amazing what I have taken for granted. Almost got that way when I lived outside of Boston, but I made more of an effort to see the Historic places.

Well I am off.

Brian

Thanks so much Brian for answering my questions. Sounds like you had a really great trip by the sound of it and by your photos. I bet you can't wait to go back.
