A little bit of Scotland

Greenan Castle, Ayrshire
Greenan Castle, Ayrshire

I’ve been neglecting my blog. And my blogging friends. But I have very good excuses (who doesn’t?) Anyway just to show this blog is still alive and kicking (slightly) I thought I’d throw up a photograph from Scotland I took this summer.

This is Greenan Castle in Ayrshire, originally a 12th Century earthwork and timber fortress. The stone tower was built around the 15th Century.

We really do take for granted all the old castles/keeps and architecture around us when we live in the UK. It’s only now that I live in the USA I can appreciate how lucky we are to have all this history around us.
