You're sure that's a pillar? I think I can make out eyes and a distinct tilt to the neck.

now that i'm back, it's more likely to be the nothing. still interested?
(and no, the dram wasn't lethal. it was heavenly.)

mt:

So we still don't know if "something crawls from the slime" at the bottom of that "dark Scottish lake"?

Looks like Nessie stayed away. I don't blame her. Those shrubs in Drumnadrochtil are interesting - they look like fall color.

we may not, but if it is indeed having to crawl from the slime we may well venture that it has a heck of a hangover.

szerelem:
the turkish overtones, eh? hope you're having fun. i have to say, i didn't put many of the best pictures up because they had people in them.

lekhni:
that's gorse, lining both sides of a one-lane road. you can see how the car is almost wider than the lane.

For some reason, Drumnadrochtil seems to be leading to something. How're things?

thanks, and welcome back to you as well.

reno:
it led to a hippie pottery shop, but that may not be what you'd meant. things are okay, i guess.

Can you give some tips about planning a 2-day Scotland trip ? I have about a week in the UK and am planning to get a BritRail pass to cover London-Liverpool-Manchester-Scotland. Is that too ambitious ?

Some ideas about what not to miss and what to avoid would be very useful. Thanks.

hi will,
sorry, i'm not much of an expert on the british isles. two days in scotland, i'd say the thing to do is rent a car and drive around as far north as you can go. take in a few lakes and distilleries and enjoy the wilderness!

Scotland AND Norway. AND great photos. Sick envy happens.
On balance, I do not like you, Prof.
