Thank you, Süleyman! Who would expect palm trees in Scotland?! Best regards, May

Kadri, herzlichen Dank! Das Erstaunliche war für mich, diese Aufnahme in Schottland machen zu können. Liebe Grüsse, May

Ich hatte mal ein Bericht über den Golfstrom gesehen und war fasziniert. Wolken aus Island grüßen ja auch zur Zeit ganz Europa, O), lg, kadri

Ja, Kadri, die Aschewolken werden noch lange zu reden geben, denke ich. ;)

Der Golfstrom hat schon einen sehr grossen Einfluss auf das Klima. Die Winter sind im allgemeinen in Irland und im Westen Grossbritanniens bedeutend weniger kalt als bei uns in Mitteleuropa, obwohl sie doch um Einiges nördlicher liegen. Liebe Grüsse, May

Goodmorning May, I have been having an early morning wander through Scotland thanks to your gallery! Some amazing photos and some places I have also been too with lots of good memories.

This image really would make you think you were in the Carribean - very beautiful! There are palm trees much further north in Scotland. For an example I have found this image for you. I have no connection to the image myself, but I have visited this garden - you could believe it was the south coast of England!

Back to Scotland now! Best wishes, Lesley

Thank you, dear Lesley! I feel flattered that you have been roaming through my gallery! Thank you for the link to that lovely garden! I passed that region too on my journey, when I travelled all around Scotland, mostly along the coast to nearly every corner, though not to the islands, except Skye. One day I might visit all the outer hebrides, if the circumstances allow it. There are still many photos waiting to be uploaded of Scotland from my journey in 2008.

From the years before I have put up on gallery 'Swissmay 2' more than a hundred, all from Scotland as well. The climate of Great Britain and Ireland is always a surprise to us - the continental crowd, ;)) because it's hard to believe that it should be warmer in winter further North than in our countries.

Best wishes, May
