John Geddes, "A Familiar Rain"
December's wintery breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane, obscuring summer's memory ...
#LauristonCastle enchanting as always..... #ArchiveAdventCalendar #EdinburghActiveAdvent #Edinburgh #snow #WINTER #VisitScotland
OTD Nine years ago, I had the honour of delivering the first ever lecture on the extraordinary life of #JohnLaw (the 17th century Scottish economist) at his ancestral home of #LauristonCastle in Edinburgh, at the invitation of @EdinCulture. That lecture became part of a book.
Today...tried to stay reasonably local and avoid crowds....As it happens #LauristonCastle grounds were very busy but we managed to find the odd spot that was zen like....even made friends with a little robin. @Edinburgh #IsolationWalks almost. Smile.
I'm working on something to encourage people in Edinburgh to find joy in exploring the wee, hidden historic places in & around town. What ones do you love?
I'm partial to ancient through Renaissance but every era's cool! @edinspotlight @EdinburghWH @EdinCulture @ArchScot
Our #MuseumPassion is sometimes the most unlikely object which often has the best story to tell if you use your imagination. Take the case of a pretty ordinary strong box in a quiet corner at #LauristonCastle. Hilary our volunteer explains.
