Cottage Scotland video of Brechin Cathedral and Round Tower

Cottage Scotland video of Brechin Cathedral and Round Tower
Brechin Cathedral dates from the 13th century hand as many beautiful stained glass windows by Edward Burne-Jones and 20th century Scottish artists. 
Of Interest is the round tower, one of the two remaining round towers of the Irish type in Scotland, built in the late 11th century with a remarkable carved doorway.

Sunshine on Scotland Street comes to Scone Palace

Sunshine on Scotland Street comes to Scone Palace 
I recently was gifted a copy of Alexander McColl Smiths new novel when meeting the author on a recent visit to Scone Palace where he was interviewed by Perthshire online Vyvyen Corrigan

Scotland Street witnesses the wedding of the century of Angus Lordie to Domenica Macdonald, but as the newlyweds depart on honeymoon Edinburgh is in disarray. Recovering from the trauma of being best man, Matthew is taken up by a Dane called Bo, while Cyril eludes his dog-sitter and embarks on an odyssey involving fox-holes and the official residence of a cardinal. Narcissist Bruce meets his match in the form of a sinister doppelganger; Bertie, set up by his mother for fresh embarrassment at school, yearns for freedom; and Big Lou goes viral. But the residents of Scotland Street rally, and order - and Cyril - is restored by the combined effects of understanding, kindness, and, most of all, friendship.
