Ireland and Scotland

Lough Erne in County Fermanagh above and below

Errigal highest point in  County Donegal
Derryveagh mountain range 4 of the seven sisters which of the seven I couldn't say  but I did find the spellings of the Seven Sisters,  Muckish, Crocknalaragah, Aghla Beg, Ardloughnabrackbaddy, Aghla More,  Mackoght and Errigal.  Say those three times and not even fast.
Hills near a cousins farm
Looking over to the Foyle River from the top of the lane on cousins farm
The Giants Causeway, these rocks amaze me every time I see them hexagon columns some curve up and some curve down.

The Giant Finn McCool was quite the civil engineer. The Causeway goes under the sea and comes up on an island on the west side of Scotland and it takes a boat ride to get there and we didn't have time.

Mountains in Scotland our tour from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye and back.

Our  bus driver was very knowledgable about the area and the history and knew scenic spots just off the beaten path.
 Scotts View in the Borderlands to the south of Edinburgh, Sir Walter Scott the writer would walk or ride horse to this viewpoint to ponder his next book.  --Ann--

Sigh...beautiful pictures! It must have been difficult to leave. Other than it looks like it was cold. Again, thanks for sharing.
