In Scottish Ramble #7, daughter Alyssa was exploring the Highlands on her break from classes at the University of Glasgow, in Scotland. More recently, having finished her post-graduate work in Museum Studies, Alyssa and a friend explored the Hebrides, an archipelago off the west coast of the mainland. The Inner and Outer Hebrides comprise a large group of islands, both inhabited and uninhabited, with a total population of about fifty-thousand. The human history of these islands stretches to an era predating the height of classic Greece.
Some of the place names encountered here include the islands of Mull, Iona and Staffa, Fingal’s Cave, and Tobermory village. The following pics are from Alyssa’s “Photo Journey to the Western Isles of Scotland.” We hope that you enjoy.
