The flower of Scotland.
Now there's a guid Scots moniker!
Glad you liked my version of the true-ish historical tale, call again, have a cuppa while you wander around!, choccy bikkies on the kitchen table!
To go with a good scottish surname to Trikermike...ancestors from the Highlands around Loch Broom on one side and from Paisley on the other...you could say it in my blood ;)
Will definately have a cuppa and choccy bikkies..oh yeah...my favourites Ha ha...
See ya from Sandy ;)
BVgger Me!, I spent many years holidayong on Loch Broom at Rhiroy, Mum liked it there too, so much so that her last wish was to rest there, her ashes are scattered along the Spouth shore where she can gaze over the Loch.
HEREare the bungalows,we stayed in No.1 each time, Cathie & Willie Matheson really took to Mum and us, like a family! Much drink , food and laughter was enjoyed over many years before Willie sadly passed in the late 1990's
It is a gorgeous part of the country thyat I visited a lot for many years!
I have a call on Skype now, so can I catch up later?
Bye 4 noo!
Hi Mike...as they say...its a small world...
My family lived at Leckmelm and my 2nd Grt Grandfather, his wife and their 1 year old son, (my Grt Grandfather) came out to Australia in 1859 on board the Commodore Perry...no doubt there will be plenty of relations to me there, as there were 9 siblings that I know of... but I don't have any contact with any of them...
Rhiroy is just across from Leckmelm...though I believe it is mainly just a big planted forest now...back then it was a main house owned by the McKenzies I think, cottages etc...my Gt Gt Grandad trained as a blacksmith there...Do you have any photos of there that you could put up for me to see ???
In the next few years I hope to get over there and walk the shores of Loch Broom...or better still...kayak down it...would be a great feeling to see with my own eyes where they came from...and not just on Google Earth...as fantastic as that is :)
Would love to hear any stories you can tell me....
All the best from Sandy ;)
I've unearthed THIS but still looking for photos Sandy perhaps your ancestors were blacksmithying for the battle!

I give you thanks and a wee gift for cluttering your photo with my chatter to a long left Mc something down-under!
Hope yer gaan aareet, canny wee lassie!
It is a good looking flag ;) and thanks for the info on the Leckmelm battle...I didn't know about that one....I only have traced my family back to just before the 1700's and can't find any more documentation for then...but it is a good run I think...though still at it of course :)
What a perfect picture this is!! Really gorgeous!
I'm nicely surprised to see so many very good photos in your album Amelia! My compliments!
Greetings from Ria
Hi Ria, I'm so pleased you like the Flower of Scotland! This one was a real beauty, but very thorny. I must also thank you so much for your great compliments to my album in general, your comment has made my day ;-)

I left a few messages in among the chatter for you, but you must have been very busy as I have not detected an answer yet!

We're just a wee bit busy at the moment - James (our newest wee grandson) is here and had an operation on Monday He is just fine now considering, but likes to have lots of attention etc. and who am I to refuse?
You can all chatter as much as you like Bonnie Lad and Sandy, it's great that you are both so keen on finding Scottish roots :))))
