Greetings From Scotland

Our trip to Scotland is fast drawing to a close and we have been busy little tourists :)
Today has been the first full day of wonderful weather so we took my mother to a couple of local gardening centers. She is the main reason we are here. She has been having MRI's, biopsies and other tests done, which have been quite tiring (and stressful) for her. She goes to see the specialist next week and we will know at that point what can, or cannot, be done for her.
Scotland has been experiencing some rough weather so we have not been able to get to some of the areas we wanted to visit. Having said that what we did see was enjoyable.
So where have we been?
Various parts of Stirlingshire since that's where my side of the family live.
Stirling Castle
Wallace Monument
Smith Art Gallery
Dunblane Cathedral
Glasgow (twice) - shopping, Museum of Modern Art, Glasgow Cathedral, Kelvingrove Museum and a general walk around the center of Glasgow
Scone Palace/Perth
Edinburgh (twice) - Royal Scottish Academy, Canongate Church, Museum of Edinburgh, Queens Gallery, People's Story, Scottish Parliament Buildings, Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura, St. Giles Cathedral, Royal Mile and shopping
Blackford Highland Games
Hopefully all our photographs will turn out and I can share some of them at a later date.


  1. Oooooooh, it sounds wonderful!! I would love to go to Scotland some day!! I'm glad you got to do SOME sightseeing, even if the weather was bad. And you got to be with your mom during a bad time, so that's gotta feel good in a way. I know I was happy to be a caretaker for my dad when he was sick. Not that I was happy that he was ill, but just that I could give something back!

  2. Got your post card...Wow!!!What a wonderful country to explore... Safe trip home....

  3. I would love to see pictures if you took any

  4. Wow you really have been getting around. Hope all is well.
