Felicity's Visit

During the first week of August, Sue's Mum, Felicity, came to visit. She arrived bearing many gifts from her trip in France, and these were mostly of the food and drink variety. These were consumed with great vigour!

On the Saturday, we headed up to Perth for the Monthly Farmers' Market. Here's some photos of us that were taken with Felicity's new camera.

After perusing the markets for a while, and consomung some yummy local produce, we headed out to Scone Palace. There's a very cool maze there, and some rather odd looking sheep!

It was then down to the serious business of eating - Among the collection of food we'd acquired, was a rather multi-cultural affair of Fraoch Heather Ale, French duck sausage and sheep's cheese! Mmmmmmmm... (Thanks for the tablecloth, Felicity!)

More touristing ensued, with a trip West to the Glengoyne Distillery.

Ken and Sue at Loch Lomond
..and then over to nearby Loch Lomond - we went for a paddle, as it was a very nice day indeed.. We stopped short of a swim, although the place was teeming with others doing exactly that..

Nelson Potatoes and Duck
Later, more eating - This is Nelson Potatoes and Duck - an odd Vegetarian and Carnivorous mixture - washed down with Montbasillac!

We then headed out to the Caterthuns, a pair of Iron-age hillforts in Angus - it was quite a view and a good climb to each of them..

Then a brief visit to Edinburgh Castle - these photos are of detail of the War memorial there.
