Unusual Edinburgh

Not exactly a standard set of tourist photos – but things that appealed to us in some way. Shots include: Charles Jencks’ Landform sculpture in front of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art; the debating chamber of the Scottish Parliament building; a view of Calton Hill including the Nelson Monument; and two different historic residential areas off the Royal Mile.

Orkney – South Ronaldsay & Burray

The first batch of shots from our fabulous recent trip to the Orkneys. Views include: looking out to sea from Barth Head; a broch we visited near Kirkhouse Point; the coastline near Windwick; a fine pint of Scapa Special at the Sands Hotel, Burray; and sheep near Bur Wick.
