heard some bad news today folks - a new study says we need to run for twenty one minutes to burn off one mince pie! one?! dear reader, i scoffed the lot. what am i to do but get jolly and tubby for the season. mind you, i could head out here and explore this magical place. i find it fascinating how this part of scotland and north america were once "as one". the tectonic plates moved many millions of years ago, separating into modern-day north america and europe with the creation of the atlantic ocean. the split occurred to the west of scotland, slowly tearing the land apart like soft bread, leaving a chain of former volcanic sites through the hebrides, including skye and st. kilda. perhaps that's why so many american and canadian tourists love to visit scotland, they feel that connection to the land. does that make sense? do you have family from here?
now...where did i put those mince pies... lovely shot by @jasoncharleshill
