Pleasures of Perthshire


We had a very jolly weekend near Comrie in Perthshire and I thought of my longest-standing reader, King Lear, as I walked up to the Melville Monument. The snowdrops were still out up there, the rhodos were in bud and will be magnificent next month, and the birch trees had a purple hue before their leaves came out. We saw plenty of wildlife: grumpy Highland cattle, leaping hares, darting red deer, hungry rabbits, oyster catchers, red kites and buzzards. Wilderness, peace, beautiful.

Being the mating and close season I don't suppose you caught sight of the blushing haggis. And were you wearing your tartan Atholl Brose?
