So I went to my family home in Scotland - Balquhidder. Its b-e-a-utiful. I spent a happy couple of days wandering around the countryside with my camera snapping away, the first batch of them I'm uploading now. I'll take them down when I get back to NZ and have a chance to fiddle with them in photoshop with the RAW images.
While I was in Balquhidder I managed to track down some relatives of mine who are living in the glen, something my family didn't know about. The stories I have from that are not that flattering of certain members of the family. Oh goody controversy!!!. It was a great time though, lots of pints of the black stuff were consumed. I can't wait to go back next year and stay for longer and do more hill walking. This time bringing proper equipment for the snow.
For those of you that don't know Balquhidder is where Rob Roy spent most of his life and is buryed in the local chursh (aprently, although I have my doubts).
Speak to you soon.
