the boss cut us some slack so i hit the rails on Thursday and went straight back to the town of Pitlochry! that was our rallying point back in 018 and i sure spent a few hours over at the Coach House playing the waiting game. also spent a few loverly afternoons at the McKay, enjoying their dining.

when we were up there in 018 i took a lot of photos but no movies! not sure what my problem was around that but anyway on Thursday i had the cameras rolling.

i also thought, when rolling out of that town in 018, i’d never see it again!

hey it was COLD up there! no b/s. i had my spring wear and man you needed your winter gear! i walked up and down the streets a few times and caught a chill. in a normal world i’d just pull into one of the little shops and warm up with something but in these times, if you want a splash, you can’t have one in the club! you have to stay on the patio! what is the world coming to? needless to say standing around in the freezing winds with a splash never made any sense to me so it was a short visit to the town of. i did have lunch at the McKay and i’ll say this: the haggis was tasting mighty gamey! the neeps and tatties were awesome but the haggis needed to be followed by something off the red wine list!

2 hours of sightseeing was all i could manage in those frosty climes so it was back on the train and rolling south. up there in Pitlochry there are some mighty high cliff faces, big trees, and big green but just south of there it turns into rolling farmlands, low hills and a lot of sheep! saw some deer, pheasants, swans (one of them was on the nest!) and a bunch of other smaller birds we don’t have in Canada. beauty scenes in all directions, a brand new landscape for this boy. i tried to film the scenes flashing past the windows but the camera kept focusing in on the window itself and not the scenes beyond! darn!

so here is a short vid i made of that fun and frosty adventure!
