Gins of Scotland

I love this guide to gins of Scotland, courtesy of 5pm.co.uk. How many of these have you tried? I have only tried Hendrick’s. Clearly I have much work to do.

20 signs you were born and raised in Scotland

Scottish piper

I spent a couple of years living in Scotland – the first year in Stirling, the second in Edinburgh – but I feel almost Scottish born.

Well, apart from the fact I look not-at-all Scottish and can’t speak with a Scottish accent or play the bagpipes. But … but … in spirit, I’m SO Scottish. Love the people, love the music, love the pubs, love the weather most of the time!

How about you? Read these 20 signs you were born and raised in Scotland and see where you land.

Loch Ness Monster spotted!

I visited Loch Ness back in the late ’90s and was hoping upon hope to spot something. Amateur photographer David Elder apparently has beat me to it! Here’s his proof that the Loch Ness Monster exists. Exhibit A:

Loch Ness Monster

He is quoted as saying:

“Out of the corner of my right eye I caught site of a black area of water about 15 feet long which developed into a kind of bow wave.

“I’m convinced this was caused by a solid black object under the water. The water was very still at the time and there were no ripples coming off the wave and no other activity on the water.

“Water was definitely going over something sold and making the wave. It looks like the sort of wave perhaps created by a windsurfing board but there was nobody on the Loch at the time, no boats, nothing.

“It is something I just can’t explain.”

What do you think? Do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster?
