In several wooded areas around Cumbria and Portmeirion in the UK, people have been hammering small denomination coins intro trees for centuries. The practice is said to date back as far as the early 1700s, in Scotland, where ill people would stick florins into trees in hopes that the trees would cure their illnesses. In 1877, Queen Victoria wrote about visiting an oak tree with coins stuck in it in Scotland’s Highlands. Amazing.

Visit the chapel of Templars - Rosslyn (Edinburgh) - Scotland. Discover the Holy Grail. Christ's cup is said to be hidden in the vaults of Rosslyn Chapel, near Edinburgh, one of several wild rumours attached to the mysterious 15th century building, which is also believed by some to be home to a UFO, the ark of the covenant and fragments of the one true cross. This is one building that Elvis, surely, has not left. Roslin, Midlothian
