Here we have a few pictures of the Orkneys and the Shetlands. Again, off the internet, since these areas are outwith my capacity; but, well...once it gets to Aberdeen, you will have ones personally taken by me ;)

Thank you, Sigurd, for sharing these pictures with us. Scotland is, indeed a very beautiful country as are its islands. Some might call the scenery stark and harsh, but to me, it's beautiful. As Gagnraad has pointed out, the Scottish highlands bear a striking resemblance to Norway.

This is the ancient "toun" of Dunfermline where the King sat drinking the "blude red wine" before sending Sir Patrick Spens on his tragic mission to Norway. Dunfermline has a regal connection unrivalled in Scotland, through its magnificent royal Palace and 12th century Abbey. It also has its own "Royal Mile" to rival that of Scotland's capital!

Glenfarg village sits at the southern end of this picturesque and narrow glen. It's sheltered position ensures that Glenfarg benefits from a mild climate all year round, making the village an ideal base for touring. The glen is approximately four miles long and at the northern half twists and turns with the course of the Farg river. The railway, now closed, ran alongside the glen and featured two tunnels within a two mile stretch - such were the difficulties encountered by the North British Railway when it was constructed.

Skara Brae (pronounced /ˈskɑrə ˈbreɪ/) is a large stone-built Neolithic settlement, located on the Bay of Skaill on the west coast of Mainland, Orkney, Scotland. It consists of ten clustered houses, and was occupied from roughly 3180 BC–2500 BC. It is Europe's most complete Neolithic village and the level of preservation is such that it has gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status,[1] and been called the "Scottish Pompeii".[2]

The Hilton of Cadboll Stone is a Class II Pictish stone discovered at Hilton of Cadboll, on the Tarbat Peninsula in Easter Ross, Scotland. It is one of the most magnificent of all Pictish cross-slabs. On the seaward-facing side is a Christian cross, and on the landward facing side are secular depictions. The latter are carved below the Pictish symbols of crescent and V-rod and double disc and Z-rod: a hunting scene including a woman wearing a large penannular brooch riding side-saddle [1]. Like other similar stones, it can be dated between the 6th to 9th centuries.
The stone was formerly on in the vicinity of a chapel just north of the village. It was removed to Invergordon Castle in the 19th century, before being donated to the British Museum. The latter move was not popular with the Scottish public, and so it was moved once more, to the Museum of Scotland[2], where it remains today. A replica designed and carved by Barry Grove was recently erected on the site.

The National Wallace Monument (generally known as the Wallace Monument) is a tower standing on the summit of Abbey Craig, a hilltop near Stirling in Scotland. It commemorates Sir William Wallace, the 13th century Scottish hero.[1]
The tower was constructed following a fundraising campaign which accompanied a resurgence of Scottish national identity in the 19th century. In addition to public subscription, it was partially funded by contributions from a number of foreign donors, including Italian national leader Giuseppe Garibaldi. Completed in 1869 to the designs of architect John Thomas Rochead at a cost of £18,000,[2] the monument is a 67-metre (220 ft) sandstone tower, built in the Victorian Gothic style. It stands on the Abbey Craig, a volcanic crag above Cambuskenneth Abbey, from which Wallace was said to have watched the gathering of the army of English king Edward I, just before the Battle of Stirling Bridge.
The monument is open to the general public. Visitors climb the 246 step spiral staircase to the viewing gallery inside the monument's crown, which provides expansive views of the Ochil Hills and the Forth Valley.
A number of artifacts believed to belong to Wallace are on display inside the monument, including the Wallace Sword, and a 1.68-metre (5 ft, 6 in) long claymore.

Here are some of my Scotland pics taken by me. We vacationed there after we were married and I also studied law there for a semester on an exchange. The first is of me from the backon the trip from John O Groats to Orkney. Next an interior of St. Magnus Cathedral. Ring of Brodger. Loch Ness. Great Country. I would live on Orkney if I could make a go of it.
