Rain, rain, rain, but nevertheless I enjoyed the landscape and discovered many beautiful, hidden places.

Regen, Regen, Regen, aber trotzdem genoss ich die Gegend und entdeckte einige schöne, versteckte Orte.

Aye May you can get to handle the rain, but what do you do about the wind,LOL, To think this whole area was the home of Hundreds of people 150 years ago, before the Lords who held a dubious title to the land forced them out to rear more profitable sheep, If it happened today it would be called Ethnic Cleansing. The Duke of Sunderland one of the largest landowners and the biggest evictor, whose Fancy Castle called Dunrobin might have been on your itinerary, last month got £40 million from the Government for one of his Old Master paintings, with the promise of the same again in 4 years for its twin. and they say crime does not pay,LOL cheers scally.

Hallo May, im Moment wäre Dir der Regen sicher lieber als der Schnee den ihr zur Zeit habt. Wenn ich es im Wetterbericht verfolge sieht es ja bald so aus als wenn ihr dieses Jahr eine durchgehende Skisaison habt.;)

Liebe Grüsse goterei

Dear Tonia, thank you very much! Greetings, May

Nicolas, Sir Galahad, I knew, you are a romantic man! :) I like the tales of galant chevalry in the early middleages. Greetings, May

Scally, yes, I saw Dunrobin from the outside, I never visit places like that and I know of these dreadful Highland clearances. I visited Badbea, a village of people, who had been driven off to the East Coast of Sutherland. I detest pretentious buildings like Dunrobin and I don't understand how people can admire and visit places like that and pay to see the rooms those lords lived, in luxury, while their subjects had been evicted and died of hunger and illnesses, living and dying in poorest circumstances. :(

Goterei, wie recht du hast! Wir ersticken im Schnee und es will nicht aufhören zu schneien. Liebe Grüsse, May

Na ja, Rudolf, ich glaube mich zu erinnern, dass du schon mal bedauert hast, dass Ihr keinen Schnee habt. :) Der häufige Regen gehört in den meisten vom Atlantik beeinflussten Orten dazu, ich habe trotzdem einige Fotos machen können. Liebe Grüsse, May

Oui, tout à fait, Domi! J'avais eu exactement ce sentiment! :) Mes meilleures salutations,

May
