Return to the Burn

As a highlight of every summer, the Marshall Scholars visit The Burn, a gorgeous manor house in the Cairngorns near Glen Esk (the very low highlands of Scotland).

Our activities whilst in England's northern neighbour include dancing a ceilidh (the very fun and fast-paced Scottish variation to an American squaredance), touring (and tasting at...) a whiskey distillery, roaming about cliffs and castle ruins, squishing our toes in a sandy beach, and roasting marshmallows over a campfire. It is, all in all, rather magical.

Also on the agenda this year was a few pre-seasonal salmon running the stream - pretty large fish leaping out of the water up the rapids to get to their spawning ground. Super, super cool to see in person.

I was entirely remiss in taking photos at most places, but here are a few from the North Sea...
