Trabalhei numa sala vip num dos jogos finais do Six Nations, um campeonato importante de rugby que participam Inglaterra, Escócia, País de Gales, Irlanda do Norte, França e Itália.
Foi quando a Inglaterra tomou um sabugo da Escócia (lanterninha) por 38x31.
Pelo que entendi, o sabugo não mudou o resultado do campeonato de pontos corridos, porque nenhum bêbado quebrou nada. Então, segue o jogo.
Na foto, Scottish eggs. Para nós, brasileiros, o avô do bolovo. Feitos com ovo de gema mole, linguiça da ilha, empanado e frito. A linguiça daqui é muito esquisita. Provavelmente, por uma questão cultural histórica de pobreza da plebe, a linguiça aqui (chamada de sausage) é feita com carne de porco (certamente não é pernil, mas preciso pesquisar mais), muito tempero e, quase sempre, leva farinha de trigo na composição. Já imaginaram a textura, né? Pois é. Saudades, toscana... Pelo menos, o ovo daqui é maravilhoso.
Edinburgh is made of sunny rain and wind. This view is from Arthur's seat, an hill near to the Scottish Parliament and apparently a great place to start hiking. I swear that next time I will appear there with properly shoes, instead of my warm but not super comfy boots.
... #artemoderna di #Edimburgo .
I vecchietti nei #musei sono i miei soggetti preferiti in assoluto da fotografare 👴😍 Però spesso mi rattrista il fatto che pochissimi giovani siano interessati alla #cultura e all' #arte ...
E #themuseumof è nato proprio per cercare di trasmettere informazioni storico-artistiche in modo veloce, semplice e immediato, in particolare ai giovani, che qua su instagram rappresentano la maggioranza degli utenti! 🎨💪
Secondo voi riuscirò a fare aumentare un po' la percentuale di giovani tra i miei followers? Fammi sapere nei commenti se pensi sia una buona idea e un buon proposito 💬😘
The Canongate Toolboth (built in 1591) is one of my favourite historic landmark of the Old Town area of Edinburgh.
At night it’s so suggestive that it feels like being back in time when it was first built ⏱
Kilchurn Castle is a ruined structure on a rocky peninsula at the northeastern end of Loch Awe, in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It was first constructed in the mid-15th century as the base of the Campbells of Glenorchy, who extended both the castle and their territory in the area over the next 150 years. After the Campbells became Earls of Breadalbane and moved to Taymouth Castle, Kilchurn fell out of use and was in ruins by 1770. It is now in the care of Historic Environment Scotland and is open to the public in summer.
Dunnottar Castle (Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Fhoithear, "fort on the shelving slope") is a ruined medieval fortress located upon a rocky headland on the northeastern coast of Scotland, about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) south of Stonehaven. The surviving buildings are largely of the 15th and 16th centuries, but the site is believed to have been fortified in the Early Middle Ages. Dunnottar has played a prominent role in the history of Scotland through to the 18th-century Jacobite risings because of its strategic location and defensive strength. Dunnottar is best known as the place where the Honours of Scotland, the Scottish crown jewels, were hidden from Oliver Cromwell's invading army in the 17th century. The property of the Keiths from the 14th century, and the seat of the Earl Marischal, Dunnottar declined after the last Earl forfeited his titles by taking part in the Jacobite rebellion of 1715. The castle was restored in the 20th century and is now open to the public.
The ruins of the castle are spread over 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres), surrounded by steep cliffs that drop to the North Sea, 50 metres (160 ft) below. A narrow strip of land joins the headland to the mainland, along which a steep path leads up to the gatehouse. The various buildings within the castle include the 14th-century tower house as well as the 16th-century palace. Dunnottar Castle is a scheduled monument, and twelve structures on the site are listed buildings.
Monzie Castle was a 17th century castellated mansion. The current house, however, dates from 1908, following the destruction of the earlier one by fire. The leading Scottish architect of the day, Sir Robert Lorimer, was called upon to restore the castle.

Dunalastair meaning "fort of Alexander" is an estate in the southern part of the Highlands, in Perthshire, Scotland. It is 18 miles west of the town of Pitlochry, lying along the River Tummel between Tummel Bridge to the east and Kinloch Rannoch to the west, and incorporates part of Dunalastair Loch/Reservoir.
Dunalastair was the home of the Clan Donnachaidh of Scotland, which includes names such as Robertson, Duncan and Reid. This family lived there until the 1850s, and there is a burial ground of the chiefs of Clan Donnachaidh in the grounds. There is the ruin of an old baronial-style mansion in the grounds, built in 1862 by General Macdonald, the then owner of Dunalastair. The original tower house was burnt down after the 1745 rebellion, as the great chieftain Alexander Robertson of Struan was a Jacobite supporter. Another house built on the site was demolished by General Macdonald in order to build the current building.
The estate is overlooked by the peak of Schiehallion, a conical mountain sometimes translated as "Fairy hill of the Caledonians". Photographer: @alasdairritchie
Castle Tioram meaning "dry castle" is a ruined castle that sits on the tidal island Eilean Tioram in Loch Moidart, Lochaber, Highland, Scotland.
It is located west of Acharacle, approximately 80 km (50 mi) from Fort William. Though hidden from the sea, the castle controls access to Loch Shiel. It is also known to the locals as "Dorlin Castle". The castle is a scheduled monument.
Castle Tioram may date to the thirteenth- or fourteenth century. It appears to have originally been a principal stronghold of Clann Ruaidhrí. Eilean Tioram, the island the fortress sits upon, is first recorded in a charter of Cairistíona Nic Ruaidhrí, daughter of Ailéan mac Ruaidhrí.
According to early modern tradition, preserved by the seventeenth-century Sleat History, the castle was erected by Ailéan's granddaughter, Áine Nic Ruaidhrí. The castle certainly served as the seat of the latter's Clann Raghnaill descendants for centuries.
As such, Castle Tioram is the traditional seat of the Clanranald (Clann Raghnaill) branch of Clan Donald. The castle was seized by Government forces in around 1692 when the clan chief Allan MacDonald of Clanranald joined the Jacobite Court in France, despite having sworn allegiance to the British Crown. A small garrison was stationed in the castle until the Jacobite rising of 1715 when Allan recaptured and torched it, purportedly to keep it out of the hands of Hanoverian forces. It has been unoccupied since that time, although there are some accounts suggesting it was partially inhabited thereafter including for the storage of firearms from the De Tuillay in the 1745 Jacobite Uprising and Lady Grange's account of her kidnapping.
Not a ruin but what an incredible picture! Thanks to @englishhighlander
If it weren't for @eddydownpatrick I'd have never found Prince Albert's Cairn. Absolutely stunning monument erected by Queen Victoria.
History: There are eleven stone cairns on the Balmoral estate in Deeside, Scotland, and a single cairn on the adjoining Birkhall estate. The cairns commemorate members of the British royal family and events in their lives. The majority of the cairns were erected by Queen Victoria.
The cairns commemorate the marriages of Victoria's children, of the Princess Royal (to Frederick, Crown Prince of Prussia in 1858), Prince Albert Edward, Princess Alice, Princess Helena, Princess Louise, Prince Arthur, Prince Leopold and Princess Beatrice. Victoria's son Prince Alfred is unique in not having a cairn dedicated to him.
The largest cairn was erected by Victoria in memory of her husband Prince Albert after his death in 1861. The Ballochbuie Cairn marks the purchase by Victoria of the Ballochbuie forest in 1878.
A cairn to commemorate John Brown was erected by Victoria after Brown's death, it was later removed at the behest of Edward VII who disliked Brown.
Two cairns were constructed to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II in 2012. 60 stones, one for each year of Elizabeth's reign, were laid in the village of Ballater, with the main stone from a local quarry in Inver. A second cairn was erected on the Balmoral estate and unveiled by the Queen on 8 August 2012, having been under construction since May. The cairn was constructed by two dry stone master 'dykers', Norman Haddow and William Crooks Cassidy, and was a gift to the Queen from her Scottish Warrant Holders and current and former employees of Balmoral. The cairn is marked with an etched slate plaque with the Queen's initials and the date, made by carver Gillian Forbes. The cairn was surmounted with a top stone found in a river, and 10-year-old malt whisky was poured over the final stone upon the cairn's completion.
