The City Of Cambridge

Despite the many drawbacks of Covid, it was time for a short staycation in Cambridge.   Sadly the University Colleges were closed to the public however, this did not detract from the overall experience.  Fortunately the weather was clement enough for a leisurely punt on the river Cam and our chauffeur was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the colleges and their alumni.  The city still retains a great atmosphere and whilst the sun is shining and the temperatures reasonable, is well worth a visit.

Scone Palace, Scotland

Here are a few shots of Scone Palace in Scone, Perthshire.  The Palace, constructed in 1808, is currently the home of the Earl of Mansfield and was the ancient crowning place for Scottish Kings on the stone of Scone (now in Edinburgh Castle).  Kings crowned here include Macbeth, Robert the Bruce and Charles II.  The palace is set amongst beautiful gardens which include the unique tartan maze.   Again, no interior photography was permitted, so only external shots of the Palace are in this post; however I think they show the palace and grounds in a spectacular light.
