Bonny Scotland here I come!

Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, for the last several months I have suffered through Helatus with you all, enjoying the suport and porn many of you have provided (waves at milly, dizzo, wings, stir and countless others). But now as we are on the home leg, I'm afraid I will be away from you and my lap top!  (oh the horror), the reason for this enforced seperation is I'm off on my hols (by the way if you are a burglar reading this, don't bother trying anything.  I'm leaving my home guarded by two dogs and an attack mother. And she's more vicious than the dogs, you've been warned).  I'm travelling to Bonny Scotland, a country that's has given us many wonderful things. In fact I feel a spam comming on.

Now I'm going to start with the couple of things Scotland has given us, that I have a few issues with.

Let start with Haggis


Haggis is a savoury pudding containing sheep's pluck; minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal's stomach.  To be fair it's only because I'm a veggie, the whole thing is beyond me.

In the spirit of fairness I also have the same issue with Faggots, now before you all
start lobbing stones and gathering round me with the pitchforks. Faggots are a Black Country delicacy which are decribed thus....

Faggots are a traditional dish in the UK, especially South and Mid Wales and the Midlands of England. It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork. *Shudders* nope don't get those either!

Ok the second thing I have a problem with.....


Bagpies! I can't help it I just can't stand the ruddy things.  So if you are Scottish do forgive me, I just can't help it, the sound goes through me.

Enough with the negative, onto the things about Scotland I love!

The scenery,


It's bloody lovely, I could go on about it all night because seriously it's truly wonderful.

So if the country is stunning what else has Scotland given us that's great?


Whisky!  The true amber nectar! Even better there's a trip to a distillery on the holiday, Steve will be pouring back onto the coach.

I also have a fondness for a traditional material


Tartan!, well actually I have a real soft spot for it's cousin Plaid.....


*Whistles* Can't imagine why, ahhh come on you knew those two would pop up somewhere *G*

Another wonderful thing about Tartan, is it comes in kilts!!!!


Dear Priestly, love the kilt and boot combo....sorry where was I, oh yes kilts!


And that's how you wear a kilt!

Not only has Scotland given us outstanding natural beauty (please see picture above) It's also given us some of the most amazing people on the planet.  Lets start with a hero of mine


Billy connolly!  I love his humor and the way he looks at the world, and I subscribe to his wisdom of....



Not only has Scotland given us great wit, it also gives us great hotties....


John Barrowman, Captain Jack Harkness, and if you're going there .....


Well hello Doctor! Honestly I'm trying not to stare at the reason he's known as Ten!


Gerald Butler! And yes long hair, result!!!!

And here's one final hottie, because if I don't get to see Outlander soon there's gonna be trouble


Oh dear god! Sam Heughan!

That's all folks, I'm going to have a great time especially if I find a highlander who looks like him *G*
