An experience I will never forget! Priceless single malts within the company of good people 🥃🏴 Slánte
I just know if I can activate this standing stone my seriously hench Highlander husband will waiting be on the other side, and I will give up indoor plumbing, modern medicine and my autonomy for the love of his brawny arms.
This is us! This picture was done by Marta (see the original photograph taken near the Rosemount area) & we decided to add the Scottish flag on the background to highlight our Scottishness and because the Scottish flag is pretty cool.
Fun fact: The Scotland Saltire (Scottish Gaelic: bratach na h-Alba) is allegedly the oldest flag in the world. It’s supposedly originated in 832AD when a Pictish army under King Angus MacFergus, High King of Alba (aka Scotland), came up against the Northumbrians under King Æthelstan in Lothian.
The Picts’ chance at victory was slim, to say the least, but legend has it that one night, Saint Andrew, who was martyred on a Saltire-shaped cross (aka the one on the flag 😉) appeared to Angus in his sleep and assured him that they’d win the battle. The next morning something really strange happened; as the two armies armed themselves for battle, an image of a white cross suddenly appeared in the sky 🌌
This gave the Picts the strength they neeed and the Northumbrian force fled in hysteria. Thenceforth, the white saltire became the Scottish flag.
Hope you enjoyed this lil storytime. 🕯 don’t forget to follow us, tag us in your pics around Scotland and we will share them 😜
