Join Ron and Sheila Pera on their photographic journey through Alba (Gaelic name for Scotland). Scotland is part of the United Kingdom (UK) and occupies the northern third of Great Britain. It has 7,330 miles of coastline which provides homes for many seabirds including Atlantic Puffins and Northern Gannets. As they traveled through the Highlands and the Inner Hebrides Islands, mystical castles and the beautiful landscapes came into view around almost every turn. During the 14 day tour 120 species of birds were recorded. It did rain, which probably explains why the raincoat was invented in1824 in Scotland by Charles Macintosh - garment is still called a “Mac”.
