So we went to Scotland.

On our first day, we went to London, and took [livejournal.com profile] adaese's mother out to dinner for her birthday; then we caught the sleeper* to Aberdeen. I only took one decent photo that day, and I deleted it by accident :-(

The second day was spent in Aberdeen. First, we had a wander round on our own. Either the good people of the city, or their monumental masons, didn't know when to stop.


Then we met Jason, Becky and Loki, who took us to Aberdeen's winter gardens. These were very colourful (and, as importantly, out of the rain).

What happened on Wednesday? Oh yes - we took the passenger ferry to Hoy, and walked up to the Dwarfie Stane.


We didn't see the Sea Eagles that are nesting near there, but we did see stonechats (like this one), young meadow pipits, and (not so) common redpolls.
