From september 24 to 30 Dopol, Fred_S and pegelli visited Scotland and spent a little over 4 days on the Isle of Sky and a day in Edinburgh. We had a fabulous trip allthough both wind and rain were always present or close but we still managed a lot of photos.

This thread will feature our award winning (and other) photo's of this trip. But without a group shot it can't be a Dyxum meeting so here we come.

p1: At the bridge in Sligachan

fltr Fred_S (Fred), Dopol (Domien) and pegelli (Pieter)


p2: At the beach in Ord

I think you can figure out who's who by comparing with p1

Thanks for starting this thread with the gorup shots Pieter! It was a great week indeed, with good company and fabulous views, despite the weather condiions.
This was what we were looking at when we left the IJmuiden harbour towards Newcastle, which wasn't exactly towards the bright sunny weather:

There was enough rain indeed. We sailed straight into it.
Then again, there is always a (chance on a little) rainbow somewhere

Thanks for kicking this off Pieter

After a short night's sleep, we arrived in Newcastle.
The only things I've seen there was from the aft deck of the ship.
D2 Kind of castle


D3 Kind of houses


Then we drove off to Edinburgh.

D2 is Tynemouth Castle (on the left) and Priory (on the right). As usual, the priory became a ruin during the worst English king, Henry VIII

Plenty of contenders for that title. My vote would be for Richard I.

Thankfully the best king is much easier: William III from the house of Orange-Nassau

I won't get into the quibble about Kings, but D2 is a great shot with nice light on these ruins

And that new (to you) 100-400 really shows it's quality in F5 and F7, and the jukebox is quite easy to spot

To continue the reportage of our arrival in Newcastle upon Tyne

p6: The pier opposite the one in FS4, with the priory and castle in the background



p7: The cormorant parliament was in session during our arrival



p8: Unloading at the North Shields F sh Ma   t



p9: A welcoming flotilla of small dingy's



p10: And after F9 you obviously want to see a photo of the entire MS City of Rotterdam. I hate to dissapoint you, but it's the ugly mongrel daughter of a Jumbo Jet and a Car Carrier
