    That's a bonnie tartan.....you lucked out as there are a few shockers.

    Anyway 'Lang may yer lum reek' WCO
    lmao yes there are some shockers; I was a bit dismayed when I got the ties and saw the pattern; but when I saw some of the others that feeling passed. I feel its (oxymoron alert) a solid pattern.

    The tartan thing is really cool. I managed to find the one for my grandmother's name, and I got a scarf in the same pattern. Here it is:


    Sorry about the weather; nice tartan!


    (I guess)

    As promised, here's some pictures from the trip... *****es.


    The view of the Pentland hills from Edinburgh Castle


    Sort of the same perspective but reversed, a view of Edinburgh Castle from the top of the National Museum of Scotland


    Wallace Monument in Stirling


    The freakin 18th hole at the Old Course. I felt the ghosts of Bobby Jones and Old Tom Morris just standing there.

    The bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. It was cold and rainy but for a brief second the clouds broke and lit up the snow covered peaks. This view was awe-inspiring.

    Nice,that'll be a good bit of glass then....those d7000 bodies are superb for what you pay for them and with a good lens you get great shots.

    The Loch Lomond shot is top notch...fabulous composition

    Glad you saw it at it's best

    Many miles away, something crawls to the surface of a dark Scottish loch.
