Dunkeld Cathedral and a Monkey Puzzle Tree (Scotland, July 2021)

I should have done more research before my tour in the Scottish Highlands. Had I done so, I would have made a mad dash for this place when we had a half-hour break on our way to Loch Ness and the Isle of Skye. Instead, I got some food and ate it in a park near the bus. Cool town, but I feel like I didn’t even scratch the surface of its history–including the 1689 Battle of Dunkeld that was fought around the cathedral between the Jacobite Highland clans and the British government. Maybe the tour guide described all of this, but on day one of the tour, I could only understand a fraction of what he said.

Back to work for me today. Feels like it’s been years. We haven’t done much face to face for the past 18 months so I guess there is a reason.
