  • Scotland: End of the Road Trip Edinburgh is a city I can return to again and again. Having begun my trip in the touristy old part of the city in Grassmarket, I decided to end it in the commercial, busier part. I stayed in the [b]Ibis Posted by teethetrav in Tee the Trav | May 30, 2018

  • Scotland: Castles & Kilts on the Isle of Skye"Why do Scotsmen wear kilts? Because the sound of a zipper scares the sheep." That is an often-told bad joke.

  • Scotland: Isle of SkyeBefore the Isle of Skye bridge opened in 2004, the only way to get to Skye was by ferry. There are dozens of Scottish isles that are still only accessible by ferry. Skye is one of the biggest and most Posted by teethetrav in Tee the Trav | May 27, 2018
  • Scotland: Applecross & Highland CoosThe Scottish Highlands abound with land and sea wildlife.

  • Scotland: Greetings from Achmelvich BeachI live three miles from the Asbury Park beach. A run-down shell of itself for decades, Asbury was recently named second best beach in the US by Money magazine. Wow. Trust me. It's not.

  • Scotland: Corrieshalloch Gorge Many of us have heard that there are multiple words in Eskimo for snow. I am amazed there aren't an equal number of words for rain in Scotland. Maybe they're in Gaelic. Anyone know? In the US, we have a Posted by teethetrav in Tee the Trav | May 23, 2018
