and I have spent the last four days exploring more of Scotland.
We went south first, only saw one touristy thing: the Wallace
The next day, we went for a sunset/twilight tour of south/west Aberdeen. We saw Cults, Maryculter, Peterculter, and plain ole Culter. Very exciting. We stopped off a Crathes Castle and walked around the grounds.
On Sabbath afternoon, after a chance meeting with Sion and Emma (and the promise of a meeting with the Rabbi on Monday evening), we set off for Larkhall. Tom showed me around his childhood town. We also walked around the grounds of the estate of the former Lords Hamilton. I can't remember how to spell, nor can I pronounce the name of the place.
Today, we drove north to Huntly. The castle was nice, nice enough for us to ignore the rain. We continued on to Banff and then drove back to Aberdeen via the Coastal Tourist Trail. We didn't stop at any more sites, but we did have tea at the Scottish Lighthouse Museum (actually just needed the toilet, but felt back leaving without at least buying a cuppa).
Tomorrow, we will cut the rest of the fireplace tiles and then I'll return the car.
Right now, we're rewarding our travels with pizza and pancakes. Pizza because it was planned and pancakes because we're watching Something's Gotta Give
and they keep talking about pancakes. We figured, we have the dry ingredients, the eggs, some strawberries, and icing sugar, so hurrah, pancakes!
