Beautiful part of Scotland is Glencoe. Stunning scenery.

I'd plump for sunning myself on a beach in Kerkennah (small island off Tunisia). Not many people so you feel that you're the only one there.

We go once a year to Scotland (passed through Elgin on the way back from a trip to Aberdeen). We always stay at a place called Aldourie which is between Dores and Inverness. The house has it's own grounds and we can walk down to the Ness River which then runs into the Loch. I'll really miss not going there.

Isnt Elgin so lovely?? I fell in love with it straight away!! Maybe its cos I have had ancesters who once lived there, I dunno, but I really liked it!! We sat in the square eating ice creams.....it was so nice!! The people were so friendly as well. I love Scotland it is very scenic and it has something about it. Yeessss!!!!! (reality check!!) the MIDGIES!!!! Hated them I have to say!!! But that was the ONLY thing I didnt like!!

We also drove past good old Loch Ness and had our lunch there........in the rain........but hey I didnt know if we would be able to do it again so you got to make the most of it!!!

Cheeky!!!

Slashing on MonkeyKongs head.
Watching it drip off his nose into the oral chasm.
Waiting to see how long it takes to cause spasm.

Sparsely cloudy skies (there's no greater painter than God...).

The sea.

Mozart's music.

Certain "perfect" moments, when everything seems to be the right thing, in the right place, at the right moment
