"Breathes there the man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath
said, ' This is my own, my native land!'... "
Walter Scott (Innominatus)
Travels round Scotland...
Yes - Scotland! The find it in Scotland team get around a fair bit in this
beautiful Country of ours, and it's not till you've gone a bit farther afield than you normally might, or moved off
the beaten track, walked for that wee bit farther or driven the extra mile or two, that you find there are areas
here that will match ANY in the world.
This picture is a view from Aonach Mor,
looking down to Fort William, and the junction of Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil. The photo does not do the beauty of it
So we are going to let you
know of some of the places we see, that are perhaps not featured in the guide books very often - if ever; places
that can fair take your breath away, once you've been lucky enough to find them; places that make you wonder why we
ever need to fly half-way across the world, with all its dangers and problems, when we are so blessed with what we
have on our doorstep. And we'll tell you of the weel-kent ones
Though mind you, Wullie drove
up to Scrabster, right at the top of the mainland and a wee bittie west of John o'Groats, for a fishing trip, and
from West Lothian, it was 269 miles; Scotland is no' as wee as maist folk
This is a view from John o'
Groats, looking towards Orkney; the eastern harbour wall is on the
..and this below is Dunnet Head, the most northerly point on the Scottish Mainland, just
along the road.
There's a lot more of it to see than most of
us realise. So we'll keep the tales of our various trips, journeys, adventures, experiences - and occasional
disasters - going as they happen. And look to have YOU tell US your own
NOW, read on... and remember, it's
