Scotland Day 9 - Isle of Skye [08:00]
After Eilean Donan Castle, we crossed the bridge to the Isle of Skye for still more unimaginably fabulous scenery. We stayed just outside the village of Portree, and headed out from there to the northernmost tip of the island. Stopped for lunch at the Flodigarry House Hotel, then around the peninsula to the village of Uig. We stopped at the grave of Flora MacDonald (who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape after the failed Jacobite Rising of 1745-46) and then ventured into the rocky crags of the Quirang. Next morning we stopped at the Talisker Distillery where Ann sampled the wares, and then we found our way to the Faerie Pools before heading down the road to Fort William.
Scotland Day 8 - Eilean Donan [05:02]
Day 8: After leaving Castle Stuart outside of Inverness, we drove down the remote eastern shore of Loch Ness toward the Isle of Skye. On the way we stopped at Eilean Donan Castle, probably the most recognizable landmark in all of Scotland. Yes, it's the most photographed edifice in all of Scotland, maybe all of Britain. So here's a few more....
GLASGOW CITY [18:28]
GLASGOW CITY The city that I was born and raised in, Glasgow City is Scotland's largest city and the third largest city in Great Britain. Glasgow city has the best shopping outside of London and is the financial business centre of the UK outside of London. The home to many of the greatest inventors of the Modern World, a very proud bustling city with much student life, shops, pubs, bars and clubs. The city has much style and beautiful architecture and is something I tend to overlook, but one thing I find whenever I hear a foreigner speak of the city is their love for the architecture around them. To me, it's something I am used to seeing, so I can't say I see much of it. In this video I show much of Glasgow at night and day, from the GOMA museum to Princes Square, Buchanan Street, Argyll Arcade, Trongate, and more. Perhaps this video will give you a taste of Glasgow, which is something I wanted to put together to show you the city I was born in. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I would be happy to answer as best I can. Glasgow City has 4 Universities, and many Colleges. And the great thing about Glasgow city is the fact that it's a centre point in Scotland, with easy access to much of the places surrounding, with beautiful scenery from the likes of Loch Lomond, Stirling is not that far, or Edinburgh which is just an hour away from Glasgow on the train. It's definitely a city worth visiting.

Culross West Fife Scotland [01:34]
Tour Scotland video of photographs of Culross on visit to West Fife. This Scottish originally served served as a port city on the Firth of Forth and is believed to have been founded by Saint Serf during the 6th century. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the town was a centre of the coal mining industry. Sir George Bruce of Carnock, who built the splendid 'Palace' of Culross and whose elaborate family monument stands in the north transept of the Abbey church, established at Culross, the first coal mine in the world to extend under the sea, in 1575. Thomas Cochrane, 10th Earl of Dundonald spent much of his early life in Culross, where his family had an estate. There is now a bust in his honour outside the Culross Town House. He was the first Vice Admiral of Chile. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.
