Tonight, bitter is the wind; it tosses the ocean’s white hair. I fear not the fierce Norse coursing the Irish sea. . Is acher ingáith innocht fufuasna faircggae findḟolt ni ágor réimm mora minn dondláechraid lainn oua lothlind. . Irish poem circa 850AD. . It was an Irish fellow called Aidan who kicked off Melrose Abbey (photo) by bringing back Christianity to those notoriously godless savages, the English & Scots; more specifically, the Northumbrians. Since he was writing from the diocese Aidan founded, the medieval historian Bede naturally gives him a glowing biography. But a little bit of reading between the lines shows how cleverly Aidan grew his flock. Here's Bede: . "He never gave money to the powerful men of the world, but only food, if he happened to entertain them; and, on the contrary, whatsoever gifts of money he received from the rich, he either distributed, as has been said, for the use of the poor, or bestowed in ransoming such as had been wrongfully sold for slaves. Moreover, he afterwards made many of those he had ransomed his disciples, and after having taught and instructed them, advanced them to priest's orders." . Interesting, eh? He went from village to village, talking, preaching, kissing babies (probably). He was allies with the king but he freed slaves & secured the loyalty of the groups they were stolen from. Moreover, he shaped his own disciples, placing these local, loyal men quickly into administration of the church. All the while, he won popular support by appearing sympathetic & portraying the church as a benevolent entity. It's brilliant, really. . The diocese flourished, proving rich pickings for raiding Norsemen 250 years later. It's OK though. Quite a few stayed, were converted, & spent the spoils. #shoplocal . #fiftyshades_of_history #vikings #northumberland #ihavethisthingwithmuseumpics #museum #scotlandlover #hiddenscotland #visitscotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotland #globewanderer #explorescotland #bbcbritain #ig_scot #ig_scotland #acertainslantoflight #chasinglight #aesthetic_revolution #omgb #documentaryphotographer #britishsnaps #britishhistory #scottishhistory #contemplation #exploremore #wonderful_places

Wszędzie są ludzie i ludziska, ale jakoś ani w pracy, ani poza nią nie mam doczynienia zbyt często z tą drugą wersją Szkotów. Oni nawet jak narzekają na pogodę, to to narzekanie i tak kończy się jakimś zabawnym podsumowaniem. Przy wielu z nich można być trochę "cheeky" w swoim poczuciu humoru, bo oni sami również lubią delikatnie uszczypnąć i nikt do nikogo nie czuje urazy. W ogólnym zarysie są bardzo przyjemni, otwarci i skorzy do żartów. Uwielbiam tych ludzi z roku na rok coraz bardziej 😊😍 - 🏚️💌📷 -- #Stirling #Scotland #fromscotlandwithlove #visitscotland #igersglasgow #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelovers #travelgram #instatravel #oldtown #trip

Fit a treat! to do a @neureekie gig in my beautiful hometown ... Stonehaven Town Hall looked great! Honoured to be on with a very talented bunch of folk. Also frankly delighted that I didn’t vomit with nerves. Let’s do more fun stuff outside the cities...

Boo and Betsy are on an adventure this week, travelling around in Marvin the camper van (courtesy of @highlandautocampers) and doing part of the North Coast 500 route in the Scottish Highlands. We’ve already seen some amazing sites on the way up here. Today we are in Scourie on the north west coast - 692 miles from home! Sadly it’s a bit wet today but the girls had a lovely walk on the local beach and are chilling in the warmth of the van. Marvin the van is amazing - I want to keep him! #highlandautocampers #dogfriendlycampervan #dogfriendlyscotland #dogfriendlyholidays #campervandogs #highlands #dogroadtrip #coast #visitscotland

🇬🇧 Petit pont de pierre menant au château d'Eilean Donan, mais sans le château 😋 lieu ultra fréquenté du Nord de l'Ecosse, passage obligé avant de se rendre sur l'île de Skye. Et bien entendu, il pleuvait encore ! 🤣 _______________________ #wilderness #thegreatoutdoors #welivetoexplore #visualambassadors #world #trip #instagram #instatrip #travel #instatravel #french #frenchroamers #frenchroamers #picoftheday #photooftheday #earthoutdoors #igersfrance #mervoyageurs #frenchfolks #glencoe #island #visitscotland #ecosse #explorescotland #outdoor #isleofskye #folksadventuresgram #outdoors #thefrenchnomads #artofvisuals #scotland

Following ancient trails of the glen towards to forests of pine and cold water. Every inch of Scotland seems to be hiding something magical. . . . #explorescotland #visitscotland #intothewild #theoutbound #lovethewild #bloomingheather
