  1. What a look out! How did you find it—by chance or were there signs? One can live somewhere for years and yet be surprised to find a walking trail, a view, or something else remarkable!

    • Thank you Marso! We visited Scotland with friends and stayed in the village of Killan, which you can see at the bottom of the image. We found a trail at the foot of a nearby mountain and hiked almost to the top early one morning. It was quite a thrill. Scotland is spectacularly beautiful!!

      Thank you!! 🙂

  2. Wonderful image Sharon 🙂

    Wonderful place !!!

    Loch Tay Boat Song lyrics

    When I’ve done my work of day and I row my boat away
    Down the waters of Loch Tay as the evening light is fading
    And I look upon Ben Lawers, where the afterglory glows
    And I think on two bright eyes and the melting mouth below
    She’s my beautious Nean Rua, my joy and sorrow too
    And although she is untrue, well I cannot live without her
    For my heart’s a boat in tow and I’d give the world to know
    Why she means to let me go as I sing hi ree hi row

    Nighean ruadh, your lovely hair has more glamor I declare
    Than all the tresses rare ‘tween Killin and Aberfeldy
    Be they lint white brown or gold, be they blacker than the sloe
    They are no more worth to me than a melting flake of snow
    Her eyes are like the gleam of the sunlight o’er the stream
    And the songs the fairies sing seem like songs she sings at milking
    But my heart is full of woe, for last night she bad me go
    And the tears begin to flow as I sing hi ree hi row

    • How lovely, Nigel. I just found a live performance of this on Youtube and it’s wonderful. A perfect tribute to the stark beauty of the mountains and unrequited love, which go together so well.

      Thank you very much for sharing!
