What's Going On This Weekend in Scotland?

I thought searching the internet was something everybody could do, but I've learned by watching others, that it IS actually a skill. Not everybody knows how to search properly to get the results they want. So, I'm going to make it easy on you this week. You are looking for something to do aren't you? Here is a short list of things (Links provided give more info including dates) going on in and around Aberdeen over the next few days (Info from Historic Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland):

  • Dallas Dhu Guided Tours - Get an in depth understanding of the distillation process and history of the Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery
  • Hands on History - Get hands-on with objects from Urquhart Castle
  • The Prisoners of Duff House - Meet a Scottish soldier and find out about the events leading up to the WWII bombing of the house by the German airforce.
  • Scottish Dancing at Huntly Castle - Traditional highland dancing demonstration
  • Giants in the Forest - "Giants in the Forest' is a UK wide project that combines art, technology and the natural environment, to inspire creative activity. Giant organic heads have been constructed, seeded and suspended in forests across Scotland, England and Wales. Here, they will hang; growing and changing with the seasons."

Well, I think that is a good enough list to get you started, eh?  Enjoy!


  1. I had the same thought, as someone who grew up with computers, at home and using them in school, I spent about 3 hours yesterday with my grandmother-in-law teaching her about how to use her email on her new iPad, and then how to play music. I'm not going to lie, I drew pictures and diagrams to help. And at this point, there has been almost no attempt to "use the Google" :) But she's willing to learn, which is awesome.

    1. I like that, "use the Google." That's really cute. hehe


I am happy to hear from you!
