Here’s the haps:
As you may or may not remember my wife and I are Scottish landowners. But that’ll be just the icing on the cake of our trip. Well, as far as we know and as far as any human can plan anything. What we hope to do is see some of the places our ancestors came from and possibly find out a bit more than we already know.
We will start at the capital Edinburgh which looks like a couple of days worth of exploring by itself:
Then on to Blairadam Forest to have a picnic on the grounds there. From there we will go see Glasgow, where my great-great-great grandfather was born. One thing that was interesting to me is that his father was born in Antrim, Ireland, and died in Belfast. Fourth great-granddad must have spent some time in Scotland, though.
Down the road from Glasgow is Kilmarnock where my great-great-great grandmother was born. From there to Stevenston where my wife’s third great-grandmother was born.
From there I added Loch Lomond because I recall hearing a sad song about it. I could look it up but it’s late and I’m tired and I have been trying to post these regularly. Besides, the other reason it’s on there at all is because I would like to see Loch Ness. I mean, I am going to Roswell, after all.
