Scotland, Part 1

In late July and early August, just when Vancouver was remembering how to do summer properly, turning hot and lush, we left for Scotland. We had a very good reason: the Wem Family was having its first-ever reunion, and we were keen to meet Keith's mother's relatives.

The reunion was in the Peak District, in England, but we flew in and out of Glasgow. We had a very good reason: whisky. We took the ferry from Kennacraig to Port Ellen, on Islay.

These photos are just a taste of what is in our Flickr set. We'll update here when we add more.

Best breakfast ever. Burnside Lodge (bed and breakfast, really) in Port Wemyss, Islay.
