Fly me back to Scotland Harry Potter!

It's been such busy times with the bears that I realised I didn't share that many photos of our trip in Scotland in the Summer. If you missed them at the time you can see some of my photos here and here. I've chosen some random shots taken on the West Coast, it really was the most wonderful holiday, I just love Scotland, which I know would make my Scottish Granny ever so proud. You can even see the beautiful steam train following the route of the Hogwarts Express from the Harry Potter films! It was amazing as it whistled by.

It's all go behind the scenes here working on beary commissions as well as some new treats from my drawings. We also spent the whole weekend re-doing the wallpaper in our hallway, as we live in a Bungalow there are lotssss of doorways to have to cut the paper the right size for and of course all is wonky! We still have half left to do next weekend! Anyway I'd better get back to my bears. Enjoy the photos, click on them to get full sizes so you can see the amazing seals in some of them! Pop back soon. HUGS, Catherine x

  1. I'm pretty sure you won't be surprised by this ...
    But Scotland is one of my favourite places, too ! I adore Glasgow. We stayed in a very cheap Youth Hostel that was acutally a CASTLE near a loch ! If you want to go there, you can ask me about this place. They have family rooms, single rooms, rooms for couples ... Just the perfect place !

    I am still to visit the Highlands, Inverness and take one of their steam-trains ♥

    Best from Paris,

  11. One of my life long goals is to see Scotland. My maiden name was Elder and I come from those Scotland roots. I had a grandma who always said to me in her heavy brogue...Your such a sweet wee lil' girly Jacqueline. I really loved seeing all the pictures. Thank you!

  14. Hi,
    I like this article but..
    last night i went to the midnight premiere of harry potter and the half blood prince! I was honestly so disappointed! was it just me or did it seem very choppy and for some reason didn't feel like it was a harry potter movie. Don't get me wrong some of the parts in it were either really funny or somewhat scary but i really was not satisfied. I don't know, what did you think?? Am i wrong? Give me your opinions..
