Informal Travelogue | Photos | Resources on the Web
August 1995, I had the pleasure of going to Scotland for two weeks.
Two weeks was at minimum a week too short. The obstensible occasion of my
visit was Intersection, the 53rd World Science Fiction Convention, held in
Glasgow at the end of August. However, while I love reading SF and enjoy
conventions, going all the way over there without seeing more than
a little something of the country would have missed a major point. For me, hitting the
convention was just going to assure that I'd run into folks I knew during some part of my journey.
Following is my travelogue, two weeks in Scotland, broken down into
sections for ease of reference, written back in 1995.
They're written informally, from one voyager's perspective, and are not meant
to be comprehensive. I had aggrevated carpal tunnel at the time I wrote them, and so
some of the discussions break off when I was just getting started...
The following GIF's are ready for your perusal, and were photographed in August 1995 by Diann at the indicated locations. Use as you please; they're Public Domain.
And a few sites from folks who've also traveled to Scotland...

Intersection material intrigues you.
