Have you watched the BBC series "Shetland" on PBS? That sent me to the map, to see where the Shetland & Orkney Islands are! While the Orkneys are right off the tip of Scotland, the Shetlands are 1/2 way to Norway .. and belonged to them at one time!

No clan tartan?

 

I have an online friend in Scotland, and one time I thought it might be neat to get a fancy sporran, as a purse .. until I priced them! The ones with fur get very expensive!

I'm grateful for Scottish heritage events, and a spouse who looks great in a kilt.

@epster - I was thinking of you last night, when watching the Animal Planet series, "Dr. Jeff, Rocky Mountain Vet"; his practice is in Denver. One of the episodes showed him & another vet up at a bison ranch, vaccinating them & stamping an ear for that. They drive the bison into a narrow rail enclosure, so their head is near the vet, then open the end & out that animal bounces. He said there would be no way for them to handle a loose animal, to hold it for an injection. They also went to a farm with goats, that brings children in to learn about caring for them; that was also for vaccinations.

 As we prepare for our trip to Yellowstone, I must admit gratitude for those who designed this (possible) mirage of bear safety.
