2. Oh, excellent!

Is that Edinburgh? That looks like the John Knox house behind him.

17. The Scottish Parliament at the foot of the Royal Mile across from Palace of Holyrood house

 

John Knox is on the High street. So it would have been in the OP's picture looking at the Palace of Holyrood House, not John Knox's House.

4. Scotland should ban windbags.


That would result in immediate deportation procedures for Mr. Perpetual Bad Hair Day.

26. Right on. My 180 gram vinyl reissue has a sticker that says "Spin's Record of the Year, 1991"

I guess no other big records came out that year? Still, MY record of 1991, for sure.

7. I love Scotland too! I'm so glad they see through this arrogant azz.

On an unrelated note (sorta) my BIL is with the RCMP and they went to Scotland to participate in some ceremony. During the parade, a whole bunch of cute little kids started marching in lockstep right along behind them. The pictures were hilarious! My BIL said it was all they could do not to break out laughing, once they noticed.

9. Were there both protesters and counterprotesters there?

The signs I can read are against the wind project (e.g. "Some call it a wind farm... Call it a wind folly. Sorry windpower. We just can't afford you.")

18. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds does have concerns

RSPB Scotland said the area was home to seabirds and rarer species, and more research was needed.

Ian Francis, RSPB Scotland area manager for north east Scotland, said: "From an early stage, we have held many discussions with the developers, and we acknowledge the efforts they have made to reduce its scale and change the layout of the turbines, which has helped.

"However, more planning, research and monitoring is needed to ensure we truly understand the impact this site may have on local birds.

"The bay is an important area of many species. Since this is a European funded test centre, it is crucial that a thorough research programme is developed to help understand how this and the many forthcoming offshore wind farms can reduce their impacts on birds and other marine wildlife."

They were also against the golf course: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/north_east/7700074.stm

25. Thank you. That was the intent.

I have a great deal of respect for Scotland and the fighting spirit of her people. Like the Irish, the Scots know that if you live to fight another day, you haven't completely lost yet.

22. And Trump never loses that smug, arrogant expression on his face even when being goofed on

He even looks smug at home while having a bowel movement.
