  • My happiest moments are when I get to walk through the beautiful highlands, dressed up and freezing in my Edwardian finery, ankle deep in mud and sheep poop, a slight drizzle ruining my hair. Yet, I couldn’t be happier 🌿

  • Edinburgh Castle is situated on Castle Rock; formed by volcanic activity millions of years ago.
▫️
Castle Rock had been a military base and royal residence for centuries. However, the edifice that is known as Edinburgh Castle was built during the 12th century by David I, son of Saint Margaret of Scotland.
▫️
The tensions between the English and Scottish nearly always centred on Edinburgh Castle. The first major battle was during the late 13th century when Edward I of England attempted to seize the vacant Scottish throne. From 1296 to 1341, the castle bounced from English to Scottish hands several times during the Wars of Scottish Independence.
▫️
After this, most of the castle’s reconstruction was overseen by David II. Much of this was undone, following the “Lang Siege.” The year long battle was triggered when Mary, Queen of Scots married James Hepburn, and a surge of rebellion against the union rose up amongst the noblemen of Scotland. Mary was forced to flee to England but loyal supporters held the castle for a further year.
▫️
Following, the ‘Union of the Crowns’ on James VI and I accession, the Scottish court departed from Edinburgh to London. The final monarch to reside at the castle was Charles I in 1633.
▫️
The 1715 rebellion saw the Jacobites come dramatically close to claiming the castle in the same style that Robert the Bruce’s men did over 400 years before; by scaling the north facing cliffs. The 1745 rebellion saw the capture of Holyrood Palace but the castle remained unbroken.
▫️
The castle now serves as a military station, is home to the Scottish National War Memorial, the Crown Jewels, Stone of Destiny and is host to the famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

  • How much food can a girl eat in 32 hours in Glasgow? Turns out quite a lot, kicking off with Turkish eggs (with a touch of tartan) @gnomfood, finishing up with frittata, house pickles and salads (including celeriac and pear remoulade, spiced coconut kale and winter purslane) @locavore_cic and squeezing in a homemade Burns Night feast in between...

  • 15:02, я сижу в аэропорту Единбурга и допиваю свой кофе. История будет детально правдива, поэтому хочу сознаться: я не пью кофе, тогда в моей чашке был горячий шоколад 😀 Если бы несколько лет назад кто-то мне сказал, что я перееду из российской провинции в Великобританию, я бы это даже не услышала, потому что бежала бы на одну из своих четырёх работ. А после ещё и университет с его зачётами, экзаменами, пересдачами..
Моя жизнь— ураган, и мне есть чем поделиться с вами. Это не история успеха, головокружительной карьеры, но это правда жизни зарубежом, которую я готова вам рассказать. 
Вам интересно услышать продолжение? Напишите в комментарии 😊

  • Sometimes when ye tell people what yer plans, goals or ambitions are they look at ye like yer away wae the fairies.  Ye can tell they’ve nae faith and nae belief that the things ye want to happen will happen and in all honesty, aye it’s quite off putting but ye carry on.  When it’s you gaun over plans, goals and ambitions wae yersel and it’s you that starts doubting yersel though, feeling like yer heids in the clouds well it’s the worst feeling ever.  This weekend I’ve been putting pen tae paper, writing doon whit I need tae dae tae get tae where I want tae be and I absolutely shat it.  Nae word of a lie, I scared mysel that much I shut over my notebook so I couldnae read whit I’d just wrote.  I panicked big time, questioned everything I’ve done and plan tae dae, asked mysel if I’ve got whit it takes, if am good enough, if I’m being stupid - all that stuff.  It fucked me up, I crumbled for a wee minute I’m no gona lie. I still doubt mysel mer times than I care to admit, still get a bit anxious making big decisions and still don’t feel confident enough at times and I don’t think that’ll ever change but I’m trying to remember how far I’ve come wae things that started off as ideas that are now very real cause I know I am fucking capable.  I’ve shown that tae mysel multiple times through my life so I duno why that wee voice pops in noo and again and tries to derail and rattle me.  The reality is the only thing that stops ye is yersel and I’m really no planning on stopping mysel fae daen anything I wanty dae so I need to flip they thoughts when they visit.  The notebooks open again and I’m reading aloud exactly whit I wrote doon cause the day I’m no feart.  My heids no in the clouds, it’s screwed on and focused - don’t even mess wae me the day wee voice, I’m aw over this✨
