22nd of March

‘The Kings Stone’ marks one of the many battles that have raged around the quiet city of Perth throughout the ages. In 980 AD at a site now called Denmarkfield a Viking army was beaten off by an Army of Scots.

The Vikings rowed up the Tay at high tide and landed here…

The River Almond which flows into the Tay a mile or so downstream of the battle-site . I saw what I thought was a wee trout rising just beyond that fallen tree…

It turned out to be a quite lot bigger….
