The desktop on my home computer has a flow of photos which have been loaded onto the computer over the years. Yesterday one of the photos that came on the screen was this one.
I am heading back to Scotland for a visit in August and we will be visiting the Hebrides and Shetland plus a trip down from Caithness to Glasgow.
Although I have lived in Australia since I was sixteen I have so many wonderful memories of my early years in Scotland.
I have also just discovered a website Robin A Crawford – writer. It is a blog that has lots of interesting posts about the culture and natural heritage of Scotland. Many of his posts are about peat and peat culture and that also rekindled memories of going peat cutting on my uncle’s croft in Boultach, Caithness.
