Hogmanay 2009


IMGP2729.png

I journeyed to Scotland late Dec 2009, and was there until early Jan 2010. Some of the pictures are NOT very pretty because I was in "mill towns" such as Coatbridge (Grandmother lived there), Airdrie (Great grandparents), Motherwell (train station) and Newton train station in the dead of winter, but I do not care; I was in Scotland and that was enough. Some of the pictures are of pictures and I mean no copyright infringement. The pictures show how the streets on which my ancestors lived looked before renovations.

Returned to Scotland in May 2010 for the Fèis IÌle on Islay. Stayed in Wishaw with some friends and did a bit of traveling around, including a return to Edinburgh, which I had visited in December 2009.

Laphroaig distillery from just outside the "peat fire"294 viewsA rather dreich (dreary) day. We were touring the distillery and I stepped outside for a moment.
This information is from Wiki: "The meaning of the toponym is unknown but a commonly suggested derivation implies the elements "lag" (Gaelic: hollow), "breid" (Norse: broad) and "vik" (Norse: bay), implying an original Gaelic form something like "Lag Bhròdhaig" (the hollow of Broadbay). The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay"."
