John Knox was a major influence in Scottish history. He was one of the founders of the Presbyterian Church, led the Protestant Reformation in Scotland and had an impact on the Puritans who then founded United States. He was also narrowminded and judgmental. But he believed in education. Because of John Knox, a large percentage of the Scottish population learned to read. He wanted them to read the Bible, but in fact they read everything. John Knox’s insistence on education contributed to the Scottish Renaissance, a flowering of intellectual thought. Science and the arts blossomed. People were widely read and intelligently informed in a broad range of categories. Some of these were not things John Knox would’ve approved of. His grave has since been paved over for a parking lot. That’s the second picture.  #edinburgh #edinburgh_snapshots #edinburgh_snapshots #edinburgh_highlights #edinburghlife #edinburghcity #edinburghsnapshots #edinburghbeauty #edinburghscotland #edinburghphotography #edinburghphoto #scotland #scotland_greatshots #scotlandsbeauty #scotland_insta #scotlandlover #scotlandtrip #scotlandshots #scotlandphotography #johnknox #knox

It seems fitting that one of the few places in Britain with sandy white beaches struggles to record double-digit temperatures in the middle of Summer. #Mull #scotland #scotlandsbeauty #instascotland

Another beautiful day in the paradise that is Orkney. Here's the Sands of Evie looking towards Rousay, which we visited earlier in the day.

Fifteen Minutes on a Beach

I don’t often get to the beach, something I miss having grown up in Durban. Today I stole a fifteen minute lunch break after facilitating a brilliant session with people living with dementia near Prestopan on the coast near Edinburgh and got a quick walk out onto the sand, over shells and seaweed till I found this beautiful structure on the sand against a moody sky.

📸Fairy pools, Isle of Skye, Scotland.
🏞
If you're road-tripping across the Isle of Skye, you might probably prefer to aimlessly enjoy the picturesque landscapes, amd rightly so. Although, I would highly recommend you guys to check out the magical Fairy pools.❄✴ Truly a 🦋 (beautiful spot) in the Isle of Skye! 
These #fairypools are a set of Crystal blue waters and series of waterfalls, located in the southern part of Isle of Skye, about a 40 minute scenic drive from Portree. \\ We could only visit this first Waterfall (also the highest of all) that marks the start of the many magical pools, since we faced heavy rainfall and strong wings soon after. To explore more pools, you simply need to follow the main path up beside the river.

I was curious about the history of this place, specially about the origin of its name, so I did try googling few bits here and there. Sadly, there isn't much of evidence around this, so you're free to be as imaginative as you'd like to be. My guess is that this place must have been a secret hang out place for the lovely ladies (read: fairies) in ancient times! What do you think?

One Scottish folklore however does mention that if you’re brave enough to take a dip in any of these (extremely) freezing pools, you will benefit from their magical healing POWERS. Despite this, I couldn't even imagine dipping my feet inside, forget going for a swim!!!
.

Would you dare doing it; Do you have the guts to swim in these the magical yet chilly waters? Go leave a comment. .
