Over on the RevGalBlogPals blog, Today’s Friday Five from "3dogmom" asks:
If someone told you they were coming to your city/state/country for the first time, what five things would you recommend that they be sure to see or do?
I live in Scotland; now down in the borders, so just a few miles from England. Previously I lived up in the North East of Scotland, which is where my heart still lies really...
Here is a photo journal of five of my favourite places to visit...
first is Findochty on the North East coast (pronounced Finechty!) where I have a lovely little house above the harbour to one side, and this wonderful beach to the other.
This is the beach at Earlsferry on the Fife coast - my heart really does belong to the sea
No one should visit Scotland without trying to set aside time to go to Iona - I could have used a picture of the Abbey, but this wee close and ancient post box warm my heart every time I see them!
You must visit our capital city too! This is Prince's Street Gardens in the heart of Edinburgh
and this is Loch Ard near Aberfoyle in the Trossachs... such beauty!!!
