We here in Northern Ireland have a very close link with Scotland, Maybe closer than with England or the Republic of Ireland. We also had a lot of farmers sell up here about 15-20 years ago when our land prices were real high and land prices in Scotland were low. My Mother's youngest brother moved to Aberdeen, so this weekend I took my 79 year old 'Auld Maither'(as they say in Scotland!) over to see her kid brother.....Scottish architecture is great and the towns are real old and narrow!....This is high street in Dunblane.....

still cobbled in parts....

Don't look now if you are claustraphobic!......

The houses are built right down to the river....

The streets just keep getting narrower! Double yellow lines along the sides of the road mean no parking, when it is on both sides it means no parking at all, at all!

This is the countryside outside Dunblane on the way to Creiff......You can nearly always see a small mountain or hill all over Scotland....It really is beautiful scenery

And this is the main street through Creiff....

I bought a new memory card in Dunblane(Just because I forgot to take my other one out of my computer screen......Maybe that is why it is called a memory card, You are s'posed to remember it! DOHHHHHHH!)So over the next week or so I will take you lads and lassies on a scenic tour of Bonnie Scotland.

Thanks for the pics. Brings back memories of the 2 weeks I spent there in '05. I'd like to be sitting in a pub right now with a pint of Tennent's in front of me. Maybe a wee bit of hagis on the side.

Are northern Ireland and Republic Of Ireland seperate countrys or just different parts of same country? And is Scotland across the water or do the countrys join? What do you have to do to go from one country to the other? Know nothing about the countrys. Never anything taught in school 55-65 years ago.

Not allowed to use real newspaper anymore... apparently the ink is bad for you... i think they can uses newspaper for the outer layers, but the inner layer has to be some fancy stuff (that probably is even worse for you).

Thanks Sam, always love to see your pictures!
Curiosity, what is the building that is for sale in the 5th pic?
What would be an estimated price for said building?

Leroy, Northern Ireland is parts of the UK, Ireland (Eire) is a sovereign Nation, Northern Ireland and Eire are on the same island (Ireland). Scotland is also part of the UK but on a different island (Great Britain).

Clear as mud??

Different parts of the same Island of Ireland.....The North is part of the United Kingdom. We have to board a sea ferry to Scotland, It is a 150 minute crossing.

found the agents listed on the sign, can't see this
property online however...

I looks like a house... can't say for sure
though...

The H sign is for a water Hydrant (fire use
usually) it will be under the steel covers visible
in the road... the blue and white arrow sign is for
a one way street...
here

Royse, not meaning to be funny, but I would have to phone them to
ask the price.....I just do not know property prices in Scotland! I
think the building is a dwelling house , but again I am not sure.....
Sorry.....Sam

I always enjoy your pics.
My wife is always bugging me about going to Scotland and Ireland. I don't dare show these to her or I'll be packing my bags.
We went to Italy last Nov. You want to see narrow streets. Barely room to just walk down some of them yet drive a car down them.
