Brodie Castle - Victorian Christmas Fair

Brodie Castle looked beautiful over the weekend for their annual Victorian Christmas Fair. The fair started Friday through to Sunday. Although, I could not make it on the Saturday due to the adverse weather conditions.

A local school attended to sing Christmas carols, all dressed in Victorian costume:

The stallholders were also in Victorian Costume - that's Linda from Pictish Designs:

This was the driveway to the Castle, a pure snow track. I am surprised that visitors came at all

Taken from the first floor of the Castle:

I'm glad I made it to the Castle yesterday, although 2 hours late, sales were pretty good considering the conditions.

Lapland......ok, it's Moray

What a winter wonderland, you could easily confuse it with Lapland!

I was due to be at Brodie Castle today for the Victorian Christmas Fair, so after we spent nearly 2 hours clearing the drive to get out, I set off. I decided to stick to the main A96 route to Inverness, thinking this would be a safe bet. How wrong was I. The A96 was treacherous and very slow moving. In parts there were not even any tracks in the road, it was pure snow on top of ice and cars sliding over the place, which caused backlogs of traffic. I have to say though, people were driving sensibly!

I managed to get almost into Elgin, when MFR (local radio - useful for traffic conditions) announced the A96 was closed between Elgin and Forres. BLAST! I turnaround at the nearest roundabout and headed back home - 2 hours later!

I was so fed up with not being able to get to Brodie Castle that I bought Toy Story 1 and 2 in a garage on the way home.

We've had a nice family afternoon watching movies - in the comfort of our home, in front of the fire.

Here are some photos of the snow we've had and of course, the daughter enjoys it:

So much for keeping my blog up to date, but now I'm slowing down with work, I'll try and keep it posted regularly. It really has been a manic season.
