Highland fling!

Tomorrow Molly and I are heading north to Scotland for a Highland fling on the shores of Lochs Linnhe and Leven.

Philip & Derek (my friends in Barbados) are currently at their home at Onich for a month, and are welcoming 22 friends for a houseparty this weekend (Friday to Monday), a highlight of which will be dinner, in kilt and dicky bow, at Port Appin’s well-known Pierhouse Restaurant on Sunday evening.

As you can see, my kilt rather stands out from the crowd. The tartan is ‘Ruthven’. I’m very (very) remotely descended from the infamous Lord Ruthven who, in 1566, murdered secretary David Rizzio in front of Mary, Queen of Scots.

The weather looks mixed wet and dry, which means having to pack for all eventualities. Thank goodness I’m driving and therefore have unlimited space for our clobber!
