Bonny Beastie Scotland!

Paddy and Plunkett are back!

Or, more correctly, they’ve gone on holiday again and sent me more tales of their adventures to use on the BeastieBlog. This time, they’re exploring the delights of Scotland!

Their journey begins in Glasgow, which is almost a homecoming for them – I’m a quarter Glaswegian myself, so there should be a teeny bit of Scottishness knitted into the genetic material of these otherwise Irish little monsters!

Their first photocall was at the Glasgow Necropolis…

…What is it with Beasties and graveyards at the minute?!

They also visited the Transport Museum – Paddy has a bit of a thing for classic cars.

I think he’s going to have to find someone a little taller than him to help with the driving, though. Meanwhile, architecture buff Plunkett had stumbled on this incredible staircase at the Central Hotel, in the railway station!

Since they were in the station anyway, the two of them decided to hop on a train and head to Aberdeen on the north east coast… And look what they found when they arrived!

How nice of the locals to knit up a cosy Beastie hotel for them to stay in!

About Paddy and Plunkett
Paddy and Plunkett are a special sub-species of Beastie called “BarrΓ³g Beasties”. “BarrΓ³g” is the Irish word for “hug”, which neatly sums up how friendly these little monsters are! They’re also special because they’re made from 100% Irish wool, which is spun and dyed in a family-owned mill in Co. Kilkenny.

Super-observant regular readers may also notice that further changes have been afoot on the BeastieBlog – after nearly two years with the same look, I was encouraged by Blogging 101 to consider overhauling my theme. I’d love to know what you think of our makeover… let me know in the comments!

  1. How cool that Aberdeen held a yarn bombing event purely for your Beasties πŸ™‚
    PS I’m loving your new theme, I’m thinking of updating mine – but with my computer making all my decisions for me I’d best ask its approval first LOL

    1. I know, they were so impressed by the warm fuzzy welcome they received! Thanks for being in favour of the changes afoot on the blog too, I had fun picking a new theme. I don’t know if I’d trust the crazed Computermabob with this one though, maybe ask for an intervention from your tame computer whisperer first! πŸ™‚

      1. My plan was to drink copious amounts of Juniper cordial AKA gin and just see what tickled my fancy through the haze when randomly flicking through blog themes πŸ˜‰
        I can’t wait to see what adventures your Beasties get up to next, on a serious note they have a better lifestyle than me !!!!

        1. Hahaha! I’m sure that isn’t true… And if a blog still looks good through a juniper juice haze, it must be worth keeping! I’ll remember that trick for next time 😁

  2. This is such a beautiful story. I love your beatsies. How cute they are. I have shared this article on Google Plus and Twitter to bring more visitors on your beautiful website. I wish you all the best in your craft and writing. Have a nice day πŸ™‚

      1. Hahaha…so cute. I love them. Keep taking them out to roam and play and please share stories with us. Have a nice day too πŸ™‚
