My cousin and I visited Scotland last August. We attended a gathering of Clan Munro in the Scottish Highlands. I will be sharing photos of our fun visit. We flew into Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival because we had tickets to attend the Edinburgh Royal Tatoo. The streets were crowded with people and performers. Many handed out flyers and dressed the parts to describe their show, requesting your attendance.S
Following are photos taken on the streets of Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival.
A Highland Love: Highland Treasures Book Five, is now available on Amazon. The novella is the sequel to A Highland Bride. Read about the early years in Alistair and Davina’s marriage. The couple must make crucial decisions if they stay together.
Alistair must choose between giving up his son for Davina, or trying to rescue his wife and keep his son. Does he love Blane enough to fight for him? He loves Davina too much to let her go.
Roy Patillo, Castle Fàrdach’s accountant, and his wife, Ina, participate in Alistair’s and Davina’s wedding. Roy invites the couple to his home for a feast and to spend their wedding night in his guest chamber. The meal is interrupted by a messenger from Fàrdach Castle with the news Lady Maidie Munro is in labor with her bairn and requests the couple’s return to the castle. Maidie is the widow of recently deceased Clan Munro chief, Andrew Dubh Munro.
After the child’s birth, Alistair is called away to pursue reivers of the clan’s cattle. He is gone for several days. Davina stays in prayer for her husband’s safe return. She keeps busy with Maidie’s children and assists in tending the new bairn. On Alistair’s return, the couple spend their wedding night together in the chief’s chamber at Fàrdach Castle.
Bridget, Alistair’s first wife, will not let him call on their son, or allow Blane to visit Alistair at Fàrdach Castle. The chief decides to kidnap his son. Struan Sutherland, Bridget’s husband, has Davina taken in return and held hostage. Struan plans to exchange Davina for Blane. While the child, Alistair’s heir, is under the Sutherland’s control, he has guardianship over the chief’s vast land holdings and Castle of Contullich.
Kidnappers take Davina to a steading first, then a cave high on the braeside of Ben Wyvis. They attempt to go over the mountain into Sutherland territory, but the winter snows slow them down. Davina almost loses her life during the journey.
Alistair pursues the outlaws, but will he rescue his beloved Davina in time?
