Today has been a wonderful day here in Scotland, we had a picnic for lunch and dinner in the garden tonight….almost a first this year! The half moon tonight is so big and beautiful. A perfect end to a perfect day.
We had another big family day out and took the all kids to Doon Hill which is somewhat of a secret, despite being in the heart of the Trossachs. It’s a must for children, a lovely short walk through oak woodland to reach the top of the hill where people have left many clouties (rags) with messages written on them in the hope that as the cloutie rots the illness or misfortunate affecting the person on who’s behalf the cloutie was placed would also vanish. Now the place is also covered in little fairies and jewels that kids have left with their wishes.
Lots of mystery surrounds the Reverend who first saw the fairies!!
