A cold cold day at Hopetoun

When we opened our curtains this morning we were greeted with a sparkly winter wonderland!

It had been a clear night and the early morning sunshine added glitter to the sparkle. However, it did mean that it took ages to drive over to South Queensferry and it seem less attractive when the window washers stopped working and we crawled along in one lane on the motorway.

The Red Drawing Room was waiting for us as cold as an icebox so I am glad we remembered to put many layers of warm clothes on. It must have been very chilly in in the 17th Century. This is the ceiling and the huge portraits hanging directly above our stands.
