Afternoon Tea in Edinburgh ☕️
The lovely Miss UK Linzi McLelland joined us today for one of our first Mental Health First Aid courses for the year 💙 Linzi is a #mentalhealth campaigner and is undertaking our 2-day course so she can gain a deeper understanding of how mental health affects people and our overall wellbeing. We're looking forward to working with Linzi as she continues to build her confidence in #MentalHealthFirstAid . @linzimclelland #StAndrewsFirstAid #Scotland #MissUK #MissScotland #Glasgow #FirstAidTraining
The Old Man of Storr😍 A large pinnacle of rock that stands high and can be seen for miles around! Legend has it that the Old Man of Storr gets its name because the rock outline and the protruding pinnacle resemble that of the face of an old man! 📷Stephen Bridger . . . . . #thestorr #oldmanofstorr #highextours #highlandexplorertours #isleofskye #scottishislands #scotlandlover #scotland #brilliantmoments #scottishscenery #adventure #travelscotland #scotlandisnow #visitscotland #scotlandisnow #lovescotland #explorescotland #instascotland #insta_scotland #ig_scot #igersscotland #thisisscotland
The bean nighe (Scottish Gaelic for "washerwoman" or "laundress") is a female spirit in Scottish folklore, regarded as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld. She is a type of bean sìth (in Irish, bean sídhe, anglicized as "banshee") that haunts desolate streams and washes the clothing of those about to die. Les Lavandières is the French word under which these "night washerwomen" are perhaps best known. The bean nighe is a figure in Scottish folklore that is said to foretell the deaths of mortals as a visitor from the Otherworld—the world of gods, fairies, spirits, and the like. It is said that she appears as a washerwoman who cleans the bloody clothes of those who are fated to die, and if one asks nicely enough, she can tell you the names of those who shall die. If you are especially careful, you can ask her three questions, but only if you answer three in return. So how do you recognize this mysterious otherworldly prophet? Well, it’s said she’s horribly ugly with webbed feet, a single tooth, a single nostril . . . or, in rare cases, she appears in the form of a beautiful woman. The thing is, do you take the chance of asking those three questions of this mysterious prophet? 🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭🎭 #PainlessReality #laundry #washerwoman #washingclothes #fantasy #spirituality #fantasyart #spiritual #enlightenment #consciousness #meditation #scary #scifi #awakening #scottish #mythology #mythsandlegends #mythical #scotland #scottishmythology #gods #banshee #spirits #spooky #threewishes #laundromat #folklore #folktales #gaelic

Neil Lennon wants to have Scott Allan in the ranks before January, but admits the club still has plenty of negotiating to do to make it happen. So it could still happen! - - - GGTTH🇳🇬 #hibs #hibernian #football #scotland

Another week, another two munros bagged 💪 A lot colder today but worth it for these views
We had fantastic team in hand-labelling our second batch of #lindandlime for 2019. Almost feels like having a labelling machine that works would ruin the fun... #spirits #distillery #leith #scottishgin #gin #labelling #edinburgh #scotland

AnCnoc 12 and Stephen King’s book On Writing. Stephen King is another one of my favorite authors and I figured I could learn a little more about storytelling - maybe it’ll improve my IG captions as well 🙂. Well it’s been a pretty stressful week, but it’s almost over. @alluredess and I have a rehearsal dinner for @vvnxo and @chuckdougie ’s wedding on Saturday which will be fun. Sunday it will be time to get back to writing..😭 #ancnoc #ancnoc12 #whisky #scotch #scotland #stephenking #novel #highland #singlemalt #instawhisky #whiskygram #whiskylover #whiskylovers #whiskyporn #scientistmeetswhisky #research #science #writing #onwriting #la #dtla #losangeles

Королевская миля #theroyalmile в Эдинбурге - достопримечательность длинною в 1,8 км (1 миля) 😳она соединяет две королевские резиденции – величественный Эдинбургский замок и дворец Холируд. Фактически, королевская миля состоит из четырёх улиц, которые последовательно переходят одна в другую. Рекомендую пешую прогулку🚶‍♀️! #edinburgh #scotland

Is the 22 years challenge a thing...? 🤔 This is one of the archival items from 1997 that is stored @womenslibrary showing an information pack for young people. Twenty-two years later, Zero Tolerance have brightened up bit and we have a more recent version of this called ‘Just Like a Child’, which challenges gender stereotyping in the early years, and is a guide for childcare professionals. We also have a leaflet ‘The Default Setting’, which explains a bit about parents’ views on gender stereotyping. Both can be found and read in full on our website under ‘our work’ > ‘children and young people’ > ‘early years’. Image description: image (1) an archival item of a 1997 Zero Tolerance information pack for young people; image (2) a recent booklet about addressing gender stereotypes in children’s early years #violenceagainstwomen #VAW #endviolence #zerotolerance #scotland #glasgowwomenslibrary #archives #genderstereotyping #genderequality #genderinequality
