Scotland, Orkney & Shetland……………………

We have been away, visiting Scotland, Orkney and Shetland hence there have been no blog entries during that time.


Our first stop was for a couple of nights at Durham because we wanted to visit the Cathedral and the two saints: The Venerable Bede and St. Cuthbert. We were impressed by the Park and Ride which took us, poor old pensioners, right into the middle of Durham, free with our bus passes. We were very impressed with the Cathedral itself which is one of the few that don’t impose a charge for entry (I really resent being asked to pay to visit a cathedral) and we spent quite a long time there. We were disappointed that Durham Castle was closed for repairs so we weren’t able to visit that.

We then drove on to Aberdeen where we were able to visit Ann’s uncle who celebrated his 90th birthday earlier this year. To be continued
