Scotland a calling

I’m off to see my lovely My lovely I’m off to see Travelling up to the Bonny land Train journey calling me Through glen and glade the journey dips Wild stags and buzzards go Past untouched beach, no man may reach Whilst otters dive and dance to and fro Wild heather and pine I’m feeling just fine Soon be there with my darling Amy For good food, laughter and love And a tipple or two, some dancing...well ye maybe Wee cottage so grand Between two beach’s of sand We walk and let cobwebs blow forth Reading and resting, each other digesting Marshmallows a toasting at the hearth Oh highlands I love, & to be with my dove My heart flutters as I arrive All stresses have gone, I feel like a swan It’s where I do thrive and thrive.

Lovely piece Angela this is told with such love and fondness of Bonnie Scotland, I was up in Inverness and Crieff for a few days break last month in the highlands, simply lovely and relaxing. Have a great weekend, Gordon

Gorgeous isn’t it, I’m currently on the train to Inverness for a nights stop over, just to break up the journey for my last leg up to Bettyhill, which is the furthest north you can get, what was she thinking! Haha! But they get all their work up there lately, she works in film and tv. So the locations are perfect x thanks for your support in earlier message x

Hi Deb, yes it’s amazing, far different from where I currently live which is near Liverpool, a very busy city! So I really look forward to the quiet up there x
