Who guess what is this?
It took me awhile to understand what that court actually was. To be honest I didn't argue the truth, but when I came back I saw people playing bowls there and what a surprise!
That is why I didn't understand. Here in Italy people play bowls a lot but on narrow dusty lanes, not on gardens like that. Is it because of the exaggerated rain or because we in italy have everything, but in a bit worse shape than abroad?
Yours the judgement.
Loch Etive is one of the most unique sea lochs in the UK. It is approx. 20 miles from the head of the loch to Connel Bridge, where it joins the Firth of Lorn forming the spectacular Falls of Lora, the only two-way tidal falls in Europe. Due to the two sets of narrows, at Bonawe and Connel, the loch has an extraordinary tidal system, which gives a two hour difference between high water at Connel and Bonawe, a distance of only 5 miles. This also has an effect on the salt content in the water - the surface layer of the water at the head of the loch can be almost fresh. The loch is over 400ft deep in places.
About 8kms East of Oban, starts by Connel Bridge.
Loch Ness - Urquhart Castle
Urquhart Castle ( Loch Ness) is 2 miles south of Drumnadrochit. The picturesque ruins of this castle lay on the shore of Loch Ness. The ruins are now owned by Historic Scotland and open to visitors most days all year round.
Ever Wondered were you were?
The Kintyre Peninsula is a ragged piece of land with sea lochs cutting in & out & lovely inland lochs. Seeing this strip of water I thought was a river, but oh no!! The locals assured me it is indeed the Atlantic. So check your Atlases to see if you agree!
My first encounters of a ruin in Scotland. It was founded in 1203 by Reginald MacDonald of Islay, Lord of the Isles. It has been ruinous for nearly three hundred years and the peace enjoyed by the nuns could still be appreciated in the lovely gardens of the cloister. There was also a Nunnery Museum situated in St Ronan’s Chapel, just to the north of the ruined church. The Chapel has been re-routed to house many interesting carved stones that were formerly scattered about the surrounding area.
