24th of June

Dragged the kids for some ‘kulchur’ to Blair Castle, seat of the Dukes of Atholl. The Duke is the only person in Britain who is allowed to have his own private army, the Atholl Highlanders who parade here. They were doing some work to the windows which they can afford judging by the price of their scones. The oldest part of the castles dates from the 13th century.

The army is not short of weapons and infact the castle is stuffed with an amazing number of them as well as a vast collection of interesting stuff gathered over the centuries by the Murray family.

The great hall, a fantastic place for a stag party….. I’ll get my coat..

This is the Hercules Garden in the castle grounds, the greek fellow is up on the right.

‘Swannee, how I love ya, how I love ya…’

‘Here swannee, swannee…’

Little Bow Peep has thankfully found at least one of her sheep..
