Finally I have my Laptop back from having it repared. I want to show you how quickly the weather can change in Isle of Skye. These are some rainbows I saw over the course of only one day. Not perfect pictures. All from out of the car window but nonetheless great moments. Which one do you like the most?
Had a great walk with this hairy champ at lunchtime today. Freezing, but beautiful winters day! ❄️☀️

End of May, time to go to a conference in beautiful Scotland 🏴. Before working though, full day of going around Edinburgh with here Rosslyn Chapel where mysteries have happened according to the Da Vinci Code.
Edinburgh, you were magnificent!!
I particularly enjoyed my volunteering experience which was at an activity day centre for the elderly 🙌. Swipe across for some snaps.
Places to eat: GRAZE & @hulajuicebar has seriously good coffee.
Things to do: Check out the Christmas Market, Arthurs Seat (admittedly didn't do this, against The Lazy Mates values walking all that way in the wind😂), Writers Museum, Check out the Grass Market, Try Haggis (didnt do this either for obvious reasons 😂)
Happy 476th birthday to Mary Queen of Scots. Mary was born in Linlithgow Palace to her father, King James V, and his wife, Mary of Guise. When James and Mary were married it was said the fountain in the palace courtyard flowed with wine.
Today Linlithgow Palace is a seriously spooky ruin, said to be inhabited by at least two ghosts. One apparition, a lady in a blue gown, travels from the palace main entrance across to the adjacent chapel's royal entrance, where she disappears. Could this female phantom be Mary of Guise, on her way to the church where her daughter was baptised?
Mary Queen of Scots spent the first several years of her life safely behind the walls of Stirling Castle. Mary's father, James V died when she was only six days old. As a result she was crowned Queen of Scots on September 9th, 1543, at the age of nine months.
The date of the coronation was an ill omen, falling on the 30th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden, where James IV, King of Scots was killed.
