Today is World Heritage Day – a day to raise the public’s awareness about the diversity of cultural heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it, as well as draw attention to its vulnerability. (http://www.gdrc.org/heritage/world-heritage-day.html)
Balmerino Abbey, Fife, Scotland
Since arriving in Scotland I have been fortunate to visit some of the diverse cultural heritage that exists in this beautiful country – from castles and cathedrals to divine stone circles, magical lochs, forests and faerie dens. All of them equally enchanting, all of them with their own story, all of them needing to be cared for.
St. Andrew's Cathedral, Fife Scotland
Across the world there are may sites, some forgotten, some not yet found, some take pride of place – all of them need preservation. Celebrating our diverse cultural heritage is a privilege and a great honour and it is this great diversity that makes it so special. This is not just about celebrating registered World Heritage Sites but visiting and caring for places important to You.
