We also spent a week in Scotland near Perth, Scone Palace, Balmoral Castle and stayed on Loch Tummel. Beautiful area. We drove up to Whitby and stayed for 2 days. Love this seaside town. All the gardens I've been to have been awesome! I'm even impressed with my own garden this year. It seems to be doing better than last year. We're slowing down a bit for August, but we are planning some back yard barbeques, flea markets, more gardens, and going to Proms and seeing their fireworks this September. I just hope it doesn't rain this year. DH and I usually like to grab something for a "car picnic" and escape work for a while and just drive somewhere. The weather could be good or bad, it doesn't matter with the car picnic.
