A while ago as some of you may remember, I traveled to Scotland to visit my friend Sebastian who was living in Crail at the time. I didn’t know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and calm the place was. The town is quite small, most of the houses were built in the 17th or 18th century and it has a lovely harbour, from where you can see the Firth of Forth. Wandering the streets is a real treat for the eye, lots of beautiful little details to look at and despite being somewhat touristic in the Summer, it seemed to me rather unspoiled. I stayed at a lovely B&B, Selcraig House. The accommodation is simple yet comfortable and Margaret, the lady who runs it is genuinely nice and friendly.
Making silly faces is my specialty.
We stopped for some tea at the Crail Harbour Gallery. The caramel looking thing on the plate is a sugary treat called tablet, which is very popular in Scotland. In fact I’d never seen it anywhere else before.
I have never met a friendly cat I don’t stop to say hello to.
If you ever find yourselves around those parts, I definitely recommend a visit to this charming place.
Have you ever been to Scotland?
Hmmmm. those ‘tablets’ look tasty!
such a pretty place, it looks charming and picturesque!, love your photos!
I’ve visited Scotland, just Edimburgh and Glasgow, and I would love to go for more and travel through the whole country!
Crail looks lovely, glad you enjoyed your visit. I’ve had tablet before, it’s VERY sweet!
Gorgeous photos as always! xxx
OMG what a nice place!
Never been to Scotland!
The sugary tablets are a Quebec treat
We call it Sucre a la crème – Cream sugar
Made with brown sugar, cream, vanilla, maple syrup
We probably got it from the Scots!
I’ve never been to Scotland, but your photos make it very appealing. Maybe some day!
Beautiful photos! I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland. Hopefully someday…
