We’ve been to Scotland. He had work to do up there recently and suggested we tag along. One day We took Him to work in Perth, then drove on to Dunkeld, to explore The Hermitage. There were some lovely Forestry Commission trails, and She wanted to see and walk on one of the Old Military Roads built by General Wade between 1720 and 1730.
We’d hope to spot some other Scotties, but as usual we were the only two in Scotland! Some two-legged scottish accented person actually asked whether we were “Westies” or “Highland Terriers” We ask you, don’t they know their own “national” dog!! Anyway, She put them right and off we trotted.
Several hours and 5.6 miles later, we returned to collect Him from the office. We tell him how lovely it was and so returned with Him a couple of days later.
We made sure we followed S.C.O.T.
Here’s some photos of us paddling in the River Tay; confronting the biggest bird we’ve ever seen and leaving him some pee-mail, to show no ill feelings; plodding along the Old Military Road; trying to photograph Europe’s tallest tree; and widest girth tree;
We’ve added some recommended links ‘cos you might get chance to visit. One day. Maybe. And you’ll want know what to look out for.
What we liked about this walk …
- It was a new walk. A very long way from home though!
- Can’t do it too regularly.
- We learnt some new stuff. History type stuff.
- We like learning new stuff. Really.
- We like Scotland. A lot
- It was sunny. All day. Surprising for Scotland. In October

Stick with us girls, and we’ll make sure you get to “see” some of the great Scottish places we’ve visited.

I loved seeing the countryside. That is the best thing about blogging, seeing places you will never get to vist through the eyes of the blogger.
Sweet William The Scot
