  Scotland Picspam, the Second

Here are some more interesting places I've seen.

Duart Castle, Mull


Dunadd Hillfort


Dunstaffnage Castle


Staffa


Iona


Inveraray Castle

The last two aren't in Scotland, but I picked them up on my way back from Newcastle to Amsterdam.

Arbeia Roman Fort


Tynemouth Priory

And they were everywhere, though usually not posing for a photo as nicely as here.

You covered a lot of ground! Looking forward to more pictures over the next few months :-)

Were the herring gulls lining up to steal your chips?
 
Something like that, yeah. They watch you very attentively when you're eating outdoors.

It was a prawn sandwich, btw. Though I had no idea gulls like mayonnaise. :)

The Lost Fort is a blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK and other places, with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes. You may also find the odd essay about geology or Mediaeval literature.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
