Covid-19 and Preparations for Exploring Scotland

Well, this pandemic has certainly scuppered my plans to visit lots of castles this year. But in the scheme of things, that is not so bad. I will see them eventually I am sure.

In the meantime I have been filling my no work time by preparing for trips in the future.

A while ago I went to the Isle of Mull for a holiday. While on that holiday I picked up a free book issued by Visit Scotland. You can download it free here. It lists many films and TV shows that have been shot in Scotland. Seeing I have lots of free time now, I made a map of most of the locations with the name of the film they refer to.

The blue place marks are ones I have not seen yet, the brown ones I have already visited at one time or another. While placing some locations I was a bit ticked off as I knew I had been there, but had not been to that specific location.

The movie Cloud Atlas was mentioned a few times and I was intrigued.

So I have ordered the book and DVD, though I am not sure when they will arrive. I hope in the future I will be able to visit some of its locations mention in the book.

Plus I really want to explore Glasgow, that was mentioned a lot too. I have been once, but didn’t really get a chance to explore the area.

In the meantime, I am not going anywhere. I am doing as I am told and staying home or within walking distance of my home. Stay safe 🙂
