Finally Pictures!

Here's Ardverikie Castle, otherwise known as Glenbogle Castle in Monarch of the Glen.

Ensign Ewart pub, just doors down from Edinburgh Castle on the Royal Mile.

Mary King's Close, one of the popular ghost tours in Edinburgh. Not sure if you can tell, but this is a photo of an extremely narrow passageway with stairs climbing between two buildings. The lower rooms where the servants lived and worked were sealed off in the 1600's to prevent the plague from being spread to the upper floors. Unfortunately, many of the servants were still alive, thus the pesky ghost problem.

First, the castle. As Eddie Izzard would, say, "I'm from England. Where the history comes from..." Amazing.

And the pub looks tres inviting.

And I certainly got shivers for those poor servants sacrificed to keep the plague from spreading. Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the the commom complaint: "You just can't find good help nowadays." Well, maybe if they hadn't sealed them all into a living grave...

Thanks, Kate!

Well, and Scotland is England, right? I mean, at least technically...

LOL Chris! To talk to most Scots, you'd never know England was in charge.

Gorgeous, Kate! And congrats on finally getting Blogger to cooperate!!

Chris, I LOVE Eddie Izzard! Oh, and the last time we were in Scotland--four years ago--I saw a sign tacked up to a telephone pole that read...ENGLISH GO HOME.
