In her recent trip to Scotland, Polly walked the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. She fearlessly inserted herself into a battle scene in St. Giles Square and got close and personal with an owl she met along the way.
She went to The Writer’s Museum, which presents the lives of three of the foremost Scottish writers: Robert Burns, Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson.
The Royal Botanical Garden was a sight to behold.
Then, Polly journeyed west, to the Isle of Islay.
She could have stayed all day at the Islay Woolen Mill, stretching out on the soft scarves…
and climbing piles of caps.
She visited a knight’s grave…
and tried to catch a snail…
and walked the beach, which was scattered with sea weed.
Back on the mainland, she headed to Linlithgow Palace, where Mary Queen of Scots was born.
Polly didn’t really need her Fair Isle vest in Scotland, since the weather was uncharacteristically sunny and warm. She’s back at home now, resting patiently until the next travel opportunity comes up. To see Polly’s complete travel wardrobe and other places she’s been, click here.

If Polly needs a nanny, I would like to apply!
You were so lucky to have such nice weather! When I was there many years ago it was freezing in July!
This is so sweet!
