Then we went up to Oban and checked out the castle (I was just excited to show you all our castle!) anyway up there there was an awesome little museum that when I inquired about the McDougall's and mentioned that I was one of them, he replied "Well you're in McDougall country now!", felt nice to be one of the Clan!
So roughly the story goes that we were really strong and awesome and had heaps of power in the highlands, then Robert the Bruce wanted to unite Scotland and we fought him off our land because of our alliances. But he came back with the Campbells and they kicked our ass (but we definitely fought them all the way!) and then all our castles were turned over to the Campbells, thus I shall never talk to a Campbell again. But in the course of things a legend has developed about the Brooch of Lorn that belonged to Robert the Bruce that was "won" by the McDougalls... it's a long story, you should get up to Oban!
We ate Haggis and it was delicious, the first place boasts the best in Glasgow and the next one we ate was deep fried...
...mmmmmm deep friedWe couldn't not go to Scotland and not check our Nessie at Loch Ness, and after that found a cool bar and saw some local music (felt like I was back in Melbs). We then went down to Edinburgh to check out the other city of Scotland, saw the castle
