on the road again...


I know it's a cheesy title, but I'm not too sure what I should call my first blog entry in well over a year. I almost feel like I should start a whole new bog since it's been so long since I've made an entry on this one. But... that would require quite a bit of effort and I don't feel like it! So there.

And so, in case you haven't guessed or heard. I am once again on the road again. I'm doing a course in Berlin (beginning mid July) and since I found a fabulously cheap flight into Glasgow June 21, I thought I would start my travels on the Isle of Arran. I'd never had a chance to see the countryside in Scotland and the guide book said that it was Scotland in miniature and so off I went...

The next photos are taken on the walk from Brodick village to Brodick Castle.


Salmon berries. Not very sweet, but I still thought they were yummy





Looking back towards Brodick, the largest village on Arran and my home base.

Brodick Castle. I got there too late in the day to go into the Castle, but I could still explore the grounds. Original parts of the castle date back to 1307 with the newer sections dating from 1844.

The mountain in the background is Goat Fell. It is the largest peak on the island and I climbed it the next day.
