St Andrews Day
And there’s plenty of activities to be getting on with this weekend - many of them FREE - visit Scotland.org by clicking on the link.
But if you are a deerhound you may not want to be doing that - but rather, visiting Rumbling Bridge this Sunday where there will be a St Andrew’s Day coursing meet from 11am.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. And I hear that there will be a fine pot of Scotch Broth for afternoon warm up.
Oh! and the weather forecast couldn’t be more Scotland . . . Misty !
And check out the 18th century painting above rendered in the Scottish School style simply entitled ‘Hero’. This has to be one of my ancestors - I recognize the curl in that tail.
