    ... north of Scotland's major city, Edinburgh.

    Mel Gibson’s William Wallace fought all of his battles in Ireland, the island next door to England, at Trim Castle, 20 miles from Ireland’s largest city, Dublin.

    With me so for? The real William Wallace never set foot on Irish soil. The make-believe William Wallace did a little of his movie making in Scotland, but the bulk of the good stuff and the meaningful stuff was filmed ...

There are throngs of people everywhere, street buskers singing, dancing and doing ...

    Sorry - kilts - Scots hate it when you call them skirts. The same counts for calling a sporran a purse, even if it looks like one and is a handy place to store your lipstick!

    ... also a black and grey lambswool scarf. That evening I met Susan and Judy and Robyn for dinner at Greyfriars Bobby, saw the little statue on the way. Afterwards we went to the Royal Oak pub and had such a good time. The jamming folk musicians were really good, a big hairy guy on guitar with a good voice, a lady with a great voice with a huge vocal range, a very friendly chap on bass (!), another ...
