World Travel – Scotland 2002 – Part VII

Our next stop takes way back in time, WAY BACK to about 3100-2500 BC to a Neolithic settlement called Skara Brae in Orkney, Scotland. This is our northern most stop and if you look at the map there is little land north on here…

World Travel – Scotland 2002 – Part VI

Our next stop is another wonderful place that is just plain hard to describe. If you think it looks nice on the outside you won’t believe the inside.

Dunrobin Castle

Yes, this is the same place. You are looking at the front door with our tour bus parked along side the castle. If you follow along with the map that comes along with each image you will see that the castle has one heck of a beach front view from the back.
