Even though its spring Bank Holiday, the sky is moody in Aberdeen and we are working as usual 😢.
.
.
I have chocolate brownies and Earl Grey tea to consolidate myself, and Cruzy is keeping an eye on me (or shall I say a sleepy eye 😴? More of this on my Stories!).
.
.
And in case you've missed it, there's a shiny new vlog on my @youtube channel, all about life in Corfu and what we did while there!
.
.
Happy Tuesday friends!

St Conan’s Kirk is a beautiful and fascinating Kirk at Loch Awe. It was designed and built by Walter Campbell to save his mother travelling six miles to the nearest church. 😆
Also, the Bruce Chapel there contains a fragment of Robert the Bruce’s bone!

Glengorm Castle was built in 1860 for James Forsyth of Quinish, who acquired the Mishnish estate in 1856.
▫️
Forsyth was despised by many on the island for his role in clearing crofters from their homes to make way for his new castle. On one occasion, an elderly woman had title to her land which Forsyth took and threw into the fire, informing her that she had a week to leave.
▫️
Upon his return he was met by the woman and the local minister who had kept the original. Forsyth incandescent with rage decided to fence her in so that she could not leave to get provisions. However, the woman managed well with the help of men climbing the cliffs nearby to bring provisions. During the construction of Glengorm Castle, Forsyth was told by the old woman that he would never live in the place. He died just before it was opened.
▫️
Located on the Isle of Mull, the castle is presently used as a guest house and wedding venue.

Two years ago the Great Tapestry of Scotland visited Clackmannanshire. Thousands of people turned out to see the amazing creation which depicts the history of Scotland.

We are delighted to announce that after much thought and planning Clackmannanshire will get its own tapestry - designed around the history of our community.

CTSI will be taking the new tapestry on a tour of the county next week so we can gather ideas and suggestions as to what should be included on our own piece of history!

Roadshow starts June 4th. Visit our website for a full timetable (link in bio). If you can’t make it along, drop your suggestion in the replies or DM us! 🧵

Climbed a hill this morning, not the big one because these marathon legs won't be able to climb that. Either way it was a sweet little hill!

It's apparently the oldest public park in Britain dating back to 1775! Has an awesome view overlooking the city, and also where some rich guy in the 1820s tried to build a replicate Parthenon and then ran out of money - the thing is huge though!

Feel like a royal for the day (or a weekend break) at Andy Murray’s luxury hotel in Dunblane | 📸 @cromlixhotel -- When Scottish tennis superstar Andy Murray acquired Cromlix, close to his hometown of Dunblane, it signalled not only a return to his roots but the chance to reinvent the glorious era of grand country house living. Following extensive refurbishment, the US Open, Olympic and Wimbledon champion has transformed the elegant Victorian Perthshire mansion into a luxury 15-bedroom and Gate Lodge, five-star destination.

Postman’s walk on the Isle of Harris going from Rhenigidale to Urgha.

In days gone by the local postman walked the steep and winding path to Urgha and back three times a week with the post.

Now the Postman’s Path is a popular walking route with amazing views on to Loch Trolamaraig, the Shiant Islands and Skye.

Culross Abbey, Fife

Culross is said to have been the site of a Christian community headed by St Serf and of which St Mungo was a member. The discovery of early Christian stones dating to the AD 700s or 800s at this site supports this tradition.

Culross Abbey was founded by Malcolm, earl of Fife in 1217-1218 as a daughter house of the Cistercian monastery at Kinloss. The abbey church was built soon after, with work continuing into the 1300s.

After the Reformation of 1560, the choir and presbytery of the Abbey Church was taken over as the Parish Church and retains an active congregation.
