A Quest for the Soul of Scotland

Last year was full of milestones for my family and, to celebrate our accomplishments, we traveled to Scotland for some time together and a little adventure.  In a trip that was incredible from beginning to end, our most favorite experiences happened in the wilder places of the country.  That is where we encountered the soul of Caledonia.

The Italian Chapel, Orkney, Scotland
The Italian Chapel, Orkney, Scotland

The Italian Chapel, which was lovingly constructed by Italian POWs, is an interesting little piece of World War II history tucked away beside a cow pasture on the main island of Orkney in the North Sea.

The Strathmore Highland Games: A Photo Gallery

One of the highlights of our Scotland trip last summer was the Strathmore Highland Games held on the grounds of Glamis Castle.  It was such a fun mixture of culture, country life, and athleticism.  The 2016 Strathmore games are taking place this Sunday, June 12 and in their honor I’m posting a gallery I put together from the photos of our happy experience last year.  How about a little Scottish culture consumption?
