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.

Bunnahabhain distillery61 viewsThis distillery, and Caol Ila, is one of the more challenging to access as it lies relatively far out on a single-track road and is right on the Sound of Islay. But the view is spectacular and well worth the drive. Like many distillery names, this one is "anglicized" Gaelic (even Gaelic is anglicized Gaidhlig). Anyway, in Gaidhlig the name is spelled Bun na h-Abhainn, and pronounced "Bunnahahvehn".
