A decidedly uncomprehensive (and possibly incomprehensible) list of websites you may find interesting. Or not.

Undiscovered Scotland is a great source of information for travel anywhere in Scotland. I refer to it frequently.

Historic Environment Scotland is the agency that cares for many of the ancient sites I have visited. English Heritage and Cadw are the corresponding agencies in England and Wales.

Saints and Stones is a catalog of ancient sites visited by my friends Jeff and Louise Demetrescu in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, with suggested journeys and other resources.

The Megalithic Portal is a compendium of ancient sites in the British Isles, Europe, and world-wide, with news, information, and photos posted by users. No such website could ever be truly comprehensive, but this one makes a frighteningly good attempt.

Orkneyjar is a fabulous site covering all aspects of the heritage of the Orkney Islands. It is the work of local writer Sigurd Towrie.

Lighthouse Friends is a website maintained by a lighthouse obsessive named Kraig Anderson. You can lose a few days there, reading about lighthouses in the US and Canada.

The Castles of Wales is an impressively comprehensive website maintained by a gentleman named Jeffrey L Thomas. Nearly 300 castles are documented, most photographed, and there is a vast number of essays and articles on Welsh castles and related themes.

Drookit Dram is frequent traveling companion Ron's website, featuring videos of walks (notably the West Highland Way), gear guides, and assorted folderol, including the occasional stupid Tattie trick.

CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) is a British consumer organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of British cask ale and pub culture.

Celtic Connections is a music festival held in Glasgow in January and February, which I keep threatening to attend.

Kathryn Tickell is a great Northumbrian piper from, uh, Northumberland.

Le Vent du Nord is a fabulous neotraditional band from Québec.
