New Cemeteries in Scotland

Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle

Greetings — our recent trip to Scotland was filled with wonderful experiences. The Edinburgh Castle was certainly a highlight but little did we expect to find a cemetery there. We hope you enjoy the Regimental Mascot Dog Cemetery.

And at the far end of the Royal Mile is the Canongate Church Burial Ground. Among its important interments are two of Scotland’s most famous artists, both of whom are featured in the current exhibition from the National Galleries of Scotland at the Kimble Art Museum in Ft Worth Texas (through Sept 20, 2015). If you’re in the area, check out this show of some of their greatest works, many never seen in the US.

Enjoy.
