Our June tour of Scotland went extremely well and for some who had never been there before it started with a bang at Edinburgh Castle. Why do they fire it at one o’clock?- so they only have to use one shell!
We had a great concert in Edinburgh from the wonderful traditional singer Emily Smith and her talented husband Jamie MacLennan.
We went to the Orkney Islands, which were so awesome that I forgot to take any pictures! Here is the wake of the ferry as we sailed up there from Aberdeen.
Dunrobin Castle, ancestral home of the notorious Dukes of Sutherland, who were responsible for some of the worst of the Highland Clearances. They certainly lived in style..
Potree on the Isle of Skye, with the Old Man of Storr in the background.
A highlight of the trip was a journey on the Hogwarts Express through some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery anywhere.
The stunning ‘Kelpies’ near Falkirk. They represent water-horses which celebrate the renovation of the Scottish canal network.
I am going to be recording a new live album in August. It will be at Perth College, Crieff Road, Perth on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd both at 7.30 pm. The concerts will be free but advanced booking must be made. To book tickets please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
