Cathedrals. She visited Skara Brae, a Neolithic village, the Ring of

Regrettably, she did not witness Nessie at Loch Ness, but did explore
the Clava Cairns, a Neolithic burial site. On the Island of Mull, she

Here dwells the soul of a Panther, the heart of a Hawk, the spirit of a Dragonfly and the wit of a Dolphin
The measure of success is found not in fame or fortune, but in the fulfillment of your dreams
