.... they say,

you'd better go,

as long as you are asked to stay,

than to stay when asked

to go.

In Schottland...

....sagt man,

man soll besser gehen,

solange man gebeten wird zu bleiben,

als zu bleiben, wenn man gebeten wird

zu gehen.

das herrliche Wallace Monument bei Stirling in Schottland, in einem ganz besonderen Abendlicht

Euch alles gute und bleibt gesund...

I would have loved to have had a closer view,

but took this from the coach as we were travelling

in Scotland!!!

 

I searched on the web to find out what this

impressive place was, when I got home. :-))

Loch Carron

 

After spending a few days on the Isle of Skye we planned to take the Applecross route so we had to cross the Skye bridge back again and drive via Kyle of Lochalsh onto the A890 towards Loch Carron.

 

There is only one way to get to the other side so we had to drive around this beautiful Loch Carron. At Tornapres the A896 starts across the famous and amazing Applecross peninsula.

 

If you ever get the chance to visit Scotland, follow our advice and enjoy this famous Applecross. You will be pleasantly surprised. The only thing is, pray for good weather like we had otherwise it will be a bad experience I'm afraid.....

  

Many thanks everyone for your visit, comments, invites and favs...it is always appreciated. My photos may not be used on websites, blogs or other media without my written and explicit permission.

The Ring of Brodgar, Stenness, Orkney, Scotland. A Neolithic henge and stone circle near Stromness. Part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site that also contains Maes How and Scara Brae. Some 5,000 years old, it predates the Pyramids and the similar stone circles at Stonehenge and Avebury.

Glen Coe (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Comhann,[1] pronounced [klan̪ˠˈkʰo.ən̪ˠ]) is a glen of volcanic origins, in the Highlands of Scotland. It lies in the north of Argyll, close to the border with Lochaber. It is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland, and is a part of the designated National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. The narrow glen shows a grim grandeur. The glen, approaching from the east on the main A82 road, is surrounded by wild and precipitous mountains. Further west at Invercoe, the landscape has a softer beauty before the main entrance to the glen. The main settlement is the nearby village of Glencoe located at the foot of the glen, near the site of the 1692 Massacre of Glencoe.

The Glen is named after the River Coe which runs through it. The name of the river may predate the Gaelic language as its meaning is not known although it is possible that the name stems from an individual personal name, Comhan (genitive Comhain).[2] Another theory gives 'glen of the dogs'

 

Information from Wikiedia.

I guess they could have been almost from anywhere, but they are from Scotland. I like them, I think, because of the colors and the lines that form if you connect the dots. I think...

 

There are more pictures from Scotland – both landscapes, urban photos, castles and flowers – in the Scotland album.

Uniquely Scotland, and including the weather. My first time back since 1984. I'll not leave it so long again.....
