From Ironbridge to Fair Isle in Scotland.

Europe-United Kingdom-Ironbridge  This bridge built in 1779 was the world's first cast-iron bridge . A designated World Heritage site. Very interesting to visit with a museum also on site. 

A interesting set of stamps showing covers of James Bonds books. 

Europe-United Kingdom-Aberdeen  Up in Scotland to start my Arctic trip by boat. Aberdeen is the starting point. This city is famous for its Oil industry. 

A hard to read Aberdeen postmark. 

United Kingdom-Fair Isle   Part of the Shetland Islands in North Scotland. This is the second stop on this voyage. Felt remote and very green. Very wild in parts , very few trees if any due to the winds. 

A beautiful old fashioned postmark used by the Post office in Fair Isle.
