Perth, located in the 'Heart of Scotland'
We pass this sign and soon we reach Pitlochry...
...the gateway to the Scottish Highlands!
Each time we visit Scotland, we visit Pitlochry. It is a perfect stop to 'update' everything.
A few miles from Pitlochry is a small junction.... leading to the 'Road to the Isles'.
Queens View is usually crowded with tourists...
The River Tummel is our companion...
...up to Kinloch Rannoch
The Schiehallion covered by clouds...
Passing the Powerstation Giaur....
In Tearoom of Rannoch Station we will have a rest before it goes back....
- A far croonin is pullin me away
As I take I wi my cromak to the road
The far Coollins are puttin love on me
As I step wi the sunlight for my load
Shur by Tummel and Loch Rannoch and Locharber I willgo
By heather tracks wi heaven in their wiles
If its thinkin in your inner heart braggarts in my step
You’ve never smelt the tangle O the isles
Oh the far coolins are puttin love on me
As step I wi' my cromak to the isles
- Its by Shiel water the track is to the west
By Aillort and by Morar to the sea
The cool cressesIam thinkin o for pluck
And bracken for a wink on Mothers knee
- Its the Blue Islands are pullin me away
Their laughter puts a leap upon the lame
The Blue Islands ffom the Skerries to the Lews
Wi heather honey taste upon each name
