Fishing Village part 1

When I said I would sort through some of my pictures from the fishing village we visited on Monday I didn't realise I had taken so many. So here are a few - if you are very lucky I may post some more tomorrow.  Did I hear a groan there? Lol. Well even if there was a groan - I'm posting them anyway.

 It is a just a wee village and was quite quiet so it was nice and peaceful to walk around. The scenery from there is lovely. I think my camera went a bit mad.

Lots of little boats in the harbour.

There is even a ruin up on the hill. This was a castle which origins date back to the 1200's, It has been a ruin for 300 years. One of its visitors included Mary Queen of Scots who visited it in 1563 as she was on her Royal tour. Hey, a wee bit of history for you as well. Bet you weren't expecting that.  
I would like to go back and take more pictures of the castle, we only had the morning as Dan had to get back to continue work on our bathroom. And, of course,  I had a date to go and get some cocktails.
I failed to mention in my last post what my lovely girls got for my birthday. Karen and Laura got me a full kit to make jam. I've never done that before and now I've got no excuse. So watch this space!!  Emma bought me several items including some lovely lillies, which I have been taking pictures of - nothing is safe from my camera.

Just beautiful! I forwarded the link to my son, so he could see the ruins of the castle. If I'm ever brave enough to fly across the Atlantic, it will be to visit Scotland!
