No genealogy today. Instead I drove from Edinburgh to the hotel where the Sorbie reunion will be held tomorrow. It was only about an hour’s drive but I’m still rather timid behind the right-sided wheel so I left myself plenty of time. Before leaving my Edinburgh hotel, I looked on the map and found a nice looking nature preserve, The Pentland Hills, along the way.
It’s both lovely and scary driving through Scotland. The scenery is gorgeous but the roads are narrow so I really couldn’t enjoy it. That’s why the Pentland Hills were perfect for me. I walked around a couple of hours past reservoirs and through an old peat bog where they’re trying to restore the state it was in before humans began harvesting it.
