Copped Hall

I’ve wanted to see Copped Hall since I was a child, but it was in a dangerous and ruinous condition so that wasn’t likely.  Since the late 90s however, the trust has been set up to preserve it.

Proud to visit it today and have a fabulous tour (with cake)!

Hyland’s House

This house is set in a beautiful park, and it is VERY MUCH restored.  Most people probably know more about the park than they do about the house, but I enjoyed a tour around it.

Nice warm day too!

Scone Palace

So the connection to Belle was Scone Palace where her portrait with Lady Elizabeth resides!  It was a last minute surprise and we had a nice picnic there too.

Popped by The House of Dun too which I hadn’t been to for years, love it.Scone

Queen’s House, Greenwich

Just one picture to tease you from my trip to London.  I’d never been to Greenwich before so I had to see the Naval College and Queen’s House.  Beautiful location.

A Day in Inverness

Had to pop by to Inverness to do some shopping at the lovely Leakey’s Bookshop was is in a converted church.  Books as far as the eye can see!

Nice views in Inverness too.
