The Scottish village of Aberfeldy is renowned for being the inspiration for Robert Burns’ poem, The Birks of Aberfeldy. A birk is the Scottish word for a beech tree and the Birks of Aberfeldy is a forested walk along Moness gorge. We did the walk this afternoon and met Robert Burns along the way. He’s the one on the right in this next one.

  1. Hi Rachel! Robert Burns looks very festive, not to mention the lovely young ladies next to him…what a beautiful place for a walk! I wonder if you will get snow for Christmas? Too mild – and wet and windy here in Somerset sadly. What a sweet little hut for those meerkats and that shop window is a hoot! Very best wishes to you and your beautiful family for a Happy Christmas and New Year…and thanks again for all your help with WP recently, throughout the year actually!! Take care Rachel… xxx

    1. I don’t think we’ll have snow for Christmas as it’s too warm here. I’m not sure who dressed Robert Burns up like that either. He was like that when we found him 🙂

      And you’re very welcome re. help with WordPress – anytime.

      Happy Christmas to you and your family also.
