 Welcome!

 

Hello, my name is Tanja and I am very happy that you found your way to my Scotland blog.

 

I have been fascinated with Scotland's great landscape and nice people since my first visit in 2002 and I would love to share my impressions with you.

 

As I like the English language, I decided to blog bilingually.

 All photos on this website are my own.


Why "Tweed Delight"?

 

Strange name for a Scotland travel blog...

 

"Tweed Delight" is my variation of the expression "sweet delight", describing a delicious sweet treat. 

 

The River Tweed is part of the border between England and Scotland. 

I particularly associate the word "tweed" with the handwoven Scottish Harris Tweed fabric made in the Outer Hebrides that I like very much.

 

The photo shows the cushions and table runner I made of Harris Tweed (dark part) and a very strong linen fabric I purchased from Natasha Marshall in Glasgow.
