    Dundee Things to Do

    In an earlier age man had been the hunter-gathered while women tended to home and family. In Dundee (when nicknamed Juteopolis) a few men still employed their ancient skills of hunting. They manned ships to hunt for whales in the far frozen corners of the earth. Others built the sturdy vessels that could withstand the crunching of ice against the...

  • Frigate HMS Unicorn

    Dundee Things to Do

    Frigate HMS Unicorn moored at Victoria Dock, Dundee at first glance didn’t look like the breed of fast rakish vessel that had been one of the most successful warships of the age. Masts and spars power a sailing ship and this frigate lacked both. A roof even covered her deck. In the brochure though, the graceful frigate under full sail looked fast,...

    Pitlochry Things to Do

    Yes, maybe it should be in the “places to stay” or “restaurant” sections, but as I haven’t stayed or eaten there...Unless you count a packet of dry roasted peanuts, of course.What I have done is sit at one of the outside tables to enjoy a pint of their Braveheart beer, and recover from a 3 hour jaunt up (& down) nearby Ben y Vrackie. It has it’s...

  • Dam and power station

    Pitlochry Things to Do

    This dam was built across the River Tummel to create Loch Faskally as a permanent water reservoir. Construction was completed in 1951. You can walk upon it and have a look at its technical construction. What attracts more people here, though, is the salmon ladder that can be seen between April and October. The ladder was constructed to help the...

  • Scone Palace

    Perth Things to Do

    Bruce’s position was desperate; he had killed another claimant to the throne. He acted quickly. Borrowed robes and a substitute circlet of plain gold as a crown he had himself crowned at the Abby of Scone on 25 March 1306 in defiance of Edward I of England who claimed feudal rights over Scotland. Superstitious unease abounded at the absence of the...

  • Guided tour to Aberfeldy

    Aberfeldy Favorites

    I visited Scotland in February, and I expected it to be very cold, with snow and stormy weather. Advise on VT confirmed this, and so I decided that I rather did not want to rely too much on public transport which could easily be delayed or cancelled due to bad weather conditions. On the other hand I wanted to get out of Edinburgh and, during my ten...

  • Arbroath Abbey

    Arbroath Things to Do

    Arbroath Abbey’s rose-pink sandstone ruins described by Dr Johnston as ‘fragments of magnificence’ stands on Abbey Street. With its crumbling walls it seems an unlikely candidate for distinction. However it hosted the most significant event in Scottish history. Here on 6 April 1320 the Scottish nobility signed the Scottish Declaration of...

  • Arbroath Clfftop Walk

    Arbroath Things to Do

    From the harbour to Auchmithie 5 miles away runs the clifftop path, part of it forming the Seaton Clifftop Wildlife Reserve. Pink and red sandstone cliffs stretch endlessly (or at least appear so!) into the distance, eroded into a series of inlets, caves and arches. Occasional breaks in the cliffs also allow you to descend to sea level. At all...
