Holy Trinity Parish Church St Andrews Fife Scotland [01:40]
Tour Scotland video of photographs of Holy Trinity Parish Church in St Andrews on visit to Fife. Called the Town Kirk, this restored medieval church once stood on the grounds of the now ruined cathedral . The church was moved to its present site in 1410, considerably altered after the Reformation of 1560, and restored in the early 20th century. Fine stained glass and carvings are inside. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.

William Rae Wilson Mausoleum Necropolis Glasgow Scotland [00:31]
Tour Scotland video of the William Rae Wilson Mausoleum on visit to Glasgow Necropolis. Doctor William Rae Wilson LLD, sometime of Kelvinbank, was born in Paisley 7th June 1772. Wilson practised as a solicitor. Unfortunately his first wife died 18 months after they were married and he went travelling in the Middle East, subsequently writing 'Travels in the holy land' and other books. Eventually he married 'An English lady of good family' from London. When Wilson died she had this domed octagonal Moorish kiosk built, in the style of Sepulchre monuments from his beloved Palestine. No wood, iron or lead has been used in its construction, all joints are concealed. The family arms of Rae and Wilson are depicted in white marble inside. Wilson adopted the middle name of Rae when he inherited money from an uncle of the same name.

Prayer Candles Holy Blood Aisle St Giles Cathedral Edinburgh Scotland [00:31]
I happened to be on tour today in Edinburgh, Scotland, including a visit to St Giles' Cathedral. Decided to light some candles offering prayers for the families of the 27 people, including 20 children who were slain at a primary school in Newtown, Connecticut, USA. I have family myself, and cannot imagine having to cope with losing a child in such awful circumstances.
