    Well... I'm not in the area, but I'm told my ancestors were.

    It was 1685 when James Christie left for the colonies.

    LOL, Sorry Friend I wasn't around back then. Boring bit of info for you, did you know there are more Scots outwith God's Country than within? Full of great photographic subjects. I'm in West Calder, which is about 15 miles west of Edinburgh.

    Apart from the usual tourist traps, Edinburgh is a beautiful city to capture on image. The buildings of the Old Town are elegant, yet the New Town buildings manage to blend in with the old. Down the vennels of the High Street (Royal Mile). Ignore the Parliament building, it's an eyesore. Edinburgh is more photogenic then Glasgow.

    Hey Dougie.
    I'm a few miles from Lanark.

    I didn't think there was anyone else from Scotland on the forum!

    Haven't seen anyone post anything from Scotland so didn't know about the Aberdonian. :)
