North Berwick: Tantallon Castle
When my niece Katie visited me in the winter of 2011, she found & chose a castle to visit: Tantallon Castle. I had never heard of it before and was glad to visit it. We had a devilishly hard time getting out to it - there were no busses (or none we could so...

Scottish outings with Heather!
Heather arrived on the 27th of May, by bus, coming up from London. Unfortunately for her, her bus was over an hour late! Once she arrived in Glasgow, though, I think things got a lot better! Having dinner & playing Harry Potter Cluedo with Rachel & Carlos T...

Between Wales and Heather
A lot has happened between my Wales trip and my sister Heather arriving to stay with me through my graduation and leaving Glasgow. As Heather pointed out to me, I won't be able to continue my Canny Glasgow blog once I leave Glasgow - which is a very sad tho...

Hillforts & Castles & Forts, oh, my!
Our first full day in Wales was a rigorous one. I was advised to wear trousers, which, for me, is a great imposition. But our first stop was Tre'r Ceiri hillfort, which was a steep climb, and very windy, and I concede that trousers were probably wise. One o...

Water under the bridge
I have missed out on four months of events, pictures, news and the like. But I feel that if I try to re-cap it all, I'll forever be behind, and never, ever get caught up. So, I'm just going to start afresh with my trip to Wales, which was from the 29th of M...

Just being together
This is my last in Utah post - then I'll go on to Glaswegian stuff again! Can't believe I'm three months behind still. In my defence, I have had classes and stuff keeping me busy! I think I've mentioned this in recent posts, but it was so nice to be with ev...
