  • Something a little different. Looking up at the moonrise up north at the end of a very long day was pretty magical. Sunset colours still remained in the sky mixed with the blues. Made for quite a melancholy scene that made you think about how small you really are in this universe. Fun fact- the moon is 1000000000000000000000 x me (in relation to mass) 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” ~Psalm 8:3-4 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#scotlandsbeauty #landscape_lover #melancholy #lovescotland #moody_nature #eclectic_shotz

  • The fishing village of Kinlochbervie wraps around the coastal landscape of Sutherland on the northwest coast of Scotland. The Scottish Moors are scenic here,  but population is scant, the road often a one track affair with passing places.  Remote describes it well, so much so that Kinlochbervie was once considered for a dictionary example of the word "remote." It was peaceful on this evening with the mist creeping over the ridges. #scotland #northcoast500

  • The Bishop's Palace is a 12th-century palace built at the same time as the adjacent St Magnus Cathedral in the centre of Kirkwall, Orkney. It housed the cathedral's first bishop, William the Old of the Norwegian Catholic church who took his authority from the Archbishop of Nidaros (Trondheim). The ruined structure now looks like a small castle.⠀
⠀
Originally, it is thought to have been like a typical Royal Norwegian palace, with a large rectangular hall above store rooms and a tower house as the Bishop's private residence. King Haakon IV of Norway, overwintering after the Battle of Largs, died here in 1263, marking the end of Norse rule over the Outer Hebrides. The neglected palace had fallen into ruins by 1320.⠀
⠀
In 1468, Orkney and Shetland were pledged by Christian I of Denmark and Norway for the payment of the dowry of his daughter Margaret, betrothed to James III of Scotland, and as the money has never since been paid, their connection with the crown of Scotland has been perpetual. In 1526, the palace came briefly into the possession of William, Lord Sinclair, before he was ordered to return it to the Bishop of Orkney. When King James V of Scotland visited Kirkwall in 1540, he garrisoned his troops in the palace and in Kirkwall Castle. Soon afterwards, extensive restoration was begun by Bishop Robert Reid, the last of Orkney's medieval bishops, who also founded the University of Edinburgh. Reid added a round tower, the Moosie Toor.⠀
⠀
Ownership passed to Robert Stewart, 1st Earl of Orkney, in 1568, then to his son Patrick Stewart, 2nd Earl of Orkney who planned to incorporate it into his Earl's Palace, Kirkwall, but debts forced him to return it to Bishop James Law. Earl Patrick's son Robert seized both palaces in 1614, and a siege followed, though it is not known if this caused damage to the structures, both of which are now ruins.⠀

  • What do you do when you not only failed to plan daytime activities in advance but also sleep in and don’t have a lot of daylight left to enjoy any unplanned activities? Well, I’m glad you asked.😊⁣
⁣
This happens to me all the time and I don’t seem to be learning from my mistakes.🤭 One of the reasons is Scotland’s unpredictable weather: all week long, a weather app keeps telling you how nice and sunny it will be the upcoming weekend, only to change its mind at the last minute and ruin any outdoorsy plans you might have in mind. The other reason is me, as I said, failing to learn that I need to plan things.🤷🏼‍♀️⁣
⁣
Whenever I’m in a situation like this - I open up Google Maps 🗺 (Trip Advisor are now more concerned with turning a profit and they have let me down too many times to now be trusted), and search for places I’d like to visit. Depending on how much time I have to spare for actual travel and the type of things I’d like to see, I either search for spots of greenery within my preferred distance (for hikes and outdoorsy stuff) or look up nearby towns I haven’t visited and then take it up to Google for things to see/do in my selected area.🚗⁣
⁣
I’ve been using this system for a while, and to be fair it’s a bit time consuming and not particularly convenient (I bet there are apps who do the exact same thing without you having to put manual labour in, but I’m not aware of any such app), but it works for me and I’ve been able to see a few places I was previously unaware of.👌🏻⁣
⁣
It also helps that I live in a country with absolutely spectacular countryside, beautiful architecture and hills upon hills upon hills. Upon hills. Seriously, there are lots of hills and they’re great for all types of hikes, you should come visit if that’s your thing.💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⁣
