Simploring 2020 (58) A Touch of Scotland ~ Bluebell Coast ~

For my simploring tour on Friday, August 14th, I selected “A Touch of Scotland ~ Bluebell Coast ~” from scop.it SL Destinations. The entry led me to another post from Maddy Gynoid “Simtipp: A Touch of Scotland ~ Bluebell Coast ~” (in German).

A Touch of Scotland ~ Bluebell Coast ~“, furtheron just Bluebell Coast, is an adult homestead owned by Christina (Christina Hammerer). The sim was designed by her and by John Dee (johnmcfluff). Bluebell Coast is part of the Scottish Lowlands. The landmark description lists the points of interest and some tags: “Photographic sim with Kilt Falls, Stag Rock, The Tower, Rabbies Burn, Loudoun Ruins, Hammy’s Cottage, Inventors corner. Campsite, Adult, naughty, nude, photography, couple, dance, forest, hang out, beach, Wedding venue

A Touch of Scotland ~ Bluebell Coast ~ – Overview

Bluebell Coast is quite flat. You land almost in the center of the sim on a flat stone. Here you cen join the group for 50L$ and can get rez rights, you can rent a bike or rezz a horse for exploring. I started my simploring tour with the tower that is quite close to the landing. On the ground level of the tower you find the “Inventor’s corner”.

There’re 3 big boards, one is an ad for Johnny Walker and when you click it you get a notecard with some information about Johnny Walker: “Johnnie Walker was born on July 25, 1805, on Todriggs Farm, Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire, Scotland.
The notecard contains a collection of links for more information.
The second board is a picture of Alexander Fleming. Again you get a notecard with more information and links: “Alexander Fleming was born on 6 August 1881 at Lochfield farm near Darvel, in Ayrshire, Scotland (my hometown)“. Latest now we know that the sim owner Christina (Christina Hammerer) is from the Scotish Lowlands, or more specific she’s from Ayrshire, which’s map is shown on the 3rd board.
When you click the map you get a notecard with a link that provides information of the history of Ayrshire and many pictures from the area. Ayrshire is roughly crescent-shaped and is a predominantly flat county with areas of low hills located in the South-West of Scotland (see also on wikipedia)

Back to Bluebell Coast. I rezzed a horse explored the sim. Riding is fun as it is flat. There are not many buildings , just Hammy’s Cottage and the Loudoun Ruins. I looked it up …. “Loudoun Castle is a ruined 19th-century country house near Galston, in the Loudoun area of Ayrshire, Scotland.” (source Wikipedia). In the preset windlight the Loudoun Ruins make a great background in particular in combination with the wide blue blooming meadow in front of it. Just lovely!!

I went to the beach and enjoyed the views. I visited the Kilt Falls and went into the Cave Inn, which entrance is just next to the waterfall. And I visited the Stag Rock, another waterfall nearby. There are two stags standing about the waterfall, hence the name is fitting.

I also looked around but I did not find “Rabbies Burn”. As I had learned Bluebell Coast is about the Scotish Lowlands and in particular about Ayrshire I looked up Rabbies Burn on wikipedia – bingo, here we go: “Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), also known familiarly as Rabbie Burns, the National Bard, Bard of Ayrshire and the Ploughman Poet and various other names and epithets, was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide” (source wikipedia).
Perhaps he lived in Hammy’s Cottage?

Bluebell Coast is a lovely place to be, to explore, to ride and to enjoy. There are many places to sit and cuddle, in particular at the beaches. Everywhere around you find dancing animations be it for males or females in seagulls or for couples in stumps or spare tyres. I got an impression of the beauty of the Scotish Lowlands, It must be a great place to be! And Christina built her own little world in Second Life. Thank you so much for sharing it publicly. I enjoyed my visit a lot!
