The Highlands

Today we drove through Perthshire to the Highlands we stopped at Gleneagles the World Famous golf course on the way and had cake and coffee. This is a must as it's simply gorgeous and the coffee is reasonably priced sometimes we feel intimated to enter such high class resorts but they don't mind at all if you just want coffee :-)

We drove to Glencoe and visited the visitors center very interesting one of the facts I found fascinating was that Angus Macdonald from the clan Macdonald one of the massacre survivors fled to America and married an American Indian you could see his son Duncan in traditional Indian clothing with his Indian wife :-) it rained later in the day but that's Scotland :-)
