A major exhibition on the life of Mary, Queen of Scots opens tomorrow at the National Museum of Scotland. The exhibition, showing only in Edinburgh, will explore the myth and reality that surround one of the most enigmatic and romanticised figures in Scottish history through a unique gathering of paintings, jewellery, textiles, furniture, drawings, maps and documents.

We attended the National Museum of Flight for the February Fun in the Air event that ran between the 9th and 17th of February. It looked like a really great day out while the children were on their February break. We were very lucky with the day that we chose because we woke up on Friday morning to glorious sunshine. The weather we had previous to this was very temperamental with a heavy snowfall on Wednesday. Anyway, we packed the car full, got the kids ready and headed for the museum which is situated at the old East Fortune RAF Airfield.
Explore the diversity of the natural world, world cultures, art and design, science and technology and Scottish history, all under one roof at the National Museum of Scotland.
Gilmerton Cove, four miles south of Edinburgh city centre, is a former subterranean dwelling hewn out of solid rock.
If you’re going to visit Scotland, Edinburgh Castle is one of those places you simply have to visit. It’s part of the touring Scotland experience. I first visited the Castle on my first visit to Scotland in 2001 – eleven years ago at the time of this writing. Since then, I have immigrated to Scotland and hosted many guests from America, and therefore, have also visited Edinburgh Castle with my guests many times.
Of all the things I didn’t know I was missing in life, Camera Obscura and World of Illusions in Edinburgh is currently Number One. I’d been told I should visit it a few years ago but never got around to it. I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal.
