Scottish holidays

Summer in northeast Scotland is so often fickle - there's little sitting on a beach or enjoying hot sunshine - but much beautiful scenery, many long walks and things uniquely and unmistakably Scottish to enjoy.

On Saturday, we went with the grandchildren to the Highland Games at Aboyne. It is sport and entertainment like nowhere else. There are massed bands, highland dancing, a tug of war contest and races and competitions and dizzying fairground rides ... and mostly this time the rain held off.

    1. You are of Scots origin? I am not ... But I love our visits North to my husband's family origins.
