Oatmeal Brûlée

Oatmeal Brulee by theviewfromgreatisland: Dessert for breakfast? Here's an easy way to treat yourself, or your guests in the morning!

The most sacred place in Scotland..only surviving building after the Battle of Culloden was the Old Leanach Cottage inhabited until 1912 then preserved by the Gaelic Society of Inverness. The Cottage is now kept by the National Trust for Scotland, as is the Moor it’s been refurbished to look of 18thC.. There were surrounding barns but they were burnt when Gov’t redcoats found 30 wounded Jacobites seeking refuge in them. They barricaded the barn, burnt the Jacobites alive.

Between 1885 and 1896 the Elephant Hotel stood at Coney Island. The hotel was 122 feet high with seven floors and 31 rooms. It became associated with prostitution and in 1896 it burnt down in one of the Island's many fires. It was recreated for the 2001 film Moulin Rouge. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coney_Island_Elephant
