4/7/18 On Saturday we sadly had to head back toward Edinburgh to catch our flight home. On the way we saw more sheep with their lambs, and perhaps some cattle from afar. There was an old viaduct, and some horses again. There were a lot of nice and cozy-looking houses as well. We saw little waterfalls trickling over the rocks, …

4/6/18 On Friday we started the day with a delicious breakfast at the place we were staying. I had finally had a good night’s sleep, and was ready to do something fun. The owner gave us some advice, as we were undecided about what to do that day. He said we should go to Oban, and I’m glad we did! …

4/5/18 On Thursday morning I got up after not sleeping enough at all, since the session went on so late. I had breakfast, said goodbye to everyone, and checked out of my room.

Today was a big day! It started out right, with a delicious breakfast at the Spylaw Bank House where I had stayed the previous night. Then, I moved my stuff to Laidlaw House at Merchiston, my accommodation for the harp festival. It was just down the road but the owner of my bed and breakfast was kind enough to give me …

I arrived in Edinburgh this morning, and spent the day recovering from the flight and adjusting to being here.  I got a little bit lost this morning trying to go on the bus to my bed and breakfast, and ended up realizing I didn’t have the exact change needed to board the bus after transferring!  My solution was to use …

I’m leaving for my trip to Scotland tomorrow!  I’ll be headed to Edinburgh, where I plan to do some exploring and sightseeing before the Edinburgh Harp Festival, which starts on Friday night. One of my goals for my time at the festival is to work on my ability to play well with other musicians, which is reflected in my course …
