  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.

 
Comments:
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 with illustrated essays on Roman and Mediaeval history - with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes from Germany, the UK, Scandinavia, and the Baltic States. You may also find the odd essay about Geology, Medieaval literature, and some poetry translations.

All texts (except comments by guests) and photos (if no other copyright is noted) on this blog are copyright of Gabriele Campbell.
