A warm hello to you. I’m Wendy. Welcome!
A bit about me…
I am a 40-something American woman who lives in the gorgeous mountains of western Virginia. I have been happily married to my wonderful Mr. C for twenty-five years. We have three adorable pups, one of whom is blind and partially deaf. I love the life I have here.
I also happen to be head over heels, crazy in love with Scotland.
What could some American lady possibly know about Scotland?
Haha, a lot actually! You may be wondering to yourself how an American woman can write with any authority about a country in which she doesn’t live. Well, my answer to that is, “How can I not?!”
To me, it’s really no different than if the thing I happened to be passionate about was world history or science or, I don’t know, fly fishing! It’s simple. When you love something, it becomes a part of you. You want to do that ‘thing’ every chance you get. You want to learn as much about it as you possibly can. And it is a joy to share that knowledge with others. I have strong Celtic roots, so to me it feels only natural to have such a strong bond with this place.
My husband and I have been so fortunate to be able to make lengthy, regular visits to Scotland. It has allowed us to really immerse ourselves in the history and the culture and to see the beautiful country in a way that a typical tourist visit doesn’t allow. Believe me, I don’t take this tremendous blessing for granted.
What will you find in this blog?
I mostly write about the places and sites in Scotland that Mr. C and I have experienced first-hand. I love researching Scottish history, so I will always give you a taste of the past when I write about historic sites. I am also a bit of a whisky aficionado and occasionally enjoy making Scottish recipes, so you’ll find a bit of those things here too. And photos. Loads of photos!
Here are some of the topics I regularly write about:
*historic homes and estates
*churches and cemeteries
I’m so thrilled that you popped in today. I hope you will visit me again soon and that my blog will inspire your travels in some way.
