Last time on “Amber Over-Dresses in a Slightly Different Location”, Terry and I had checked into Dunkeld House Hotel and were all ready to start relaxing. The hotel gives you lots of different ways in which to do this: there’s…

Road Trip! Glamis Castle, Angus

I know, it’s ironic, isn’t it – an entire post just crammed with photos, mere days after I whine about people stealing my images! Like I said, though, I’m not going to stop posting photos because of these idiots, although…
