Did everyone had a nice weekend? I spent mine planting lots of pretty pink flowers, eating delicious food, visiting with family and friends, and writing a word or two. The long Memorial Day holiday is almost over and tomorrow it’s back to business as usual.
In today’s blog post, I’d like to point out a really interesting site located on the island of Inchcolm in the Firth of Forth (the estuary off Scotland’s east coast that flows into the North Sea). Mr. C and I first spotted the structure from the grounds of Lauriston Castle in Edinburgh.
We had no idea what we were looking at that day and assumed it was a castle ruin. It wasn’t until we chartered a sailing tour of the Firth (a blast – more on that in a future post) that we saw this remarkable structure in clearer view. Turns out it was Inchcolm Abbey, the most well-preserved group of monastic buildings in Scotland.
