Wallpaper Wednesday

Cairngorms

Yes, we’re on a floating wallpaper schedule these days. I’ll try to get back to Mondays, but the last few weeks have been a bit crazy here at the homestead.

At any rate, in celebration of wrapping up my itinerary planning for our trip to Scotland in August, here are the Scottish Cairngorms, photographed from Braemar. We’ll spend two days in a B&B inside Cairngorms National Park, and I’m only sorry we haven’t more time. (But there’s so much to see elsewhere in the country…)

As a western American, I still can’t get over the idea of private properties and even entire villages being located inside a national park, because my idea of a national park is a gigantic acreage of wilderness, with one or two old and splendid lodges available for overpriced accommodation. However, I am not disappointed at being able to stay in a top notch bed and breakfast for half the price I’d pay for a small room at a national park lodge. And oh, those Scottish breakfasts! I am already salivating.

(Click the image to fatten, as ten days of Scottish breakfasts are bound to do…)

    Oh, Cairngorm is beautiful! So envious now! Here’s a pic I took in November 2005, on the decent from Fiacaill a’Choire Chais: http://imgur.com/zFYvGnn I really want to return to Scotland some day. 🙂
