St Andrews Day

St Andrews Day. Scotland's official national day. Also, my Gran's birthday! Here is my absolute favourite place in Scotland, the white sands of Morar.

The Flower of Scotland

O flower of Scotland
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen
And stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

The hills are bare now
And autumn leaves lie thick and still
O'er land that is lost now
Which those so dearly held
And stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

Those days are passed now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again
And stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

Bahhhh, Bahhh...well you certainly know how to get to us expats. I thought I was in for a picture of tatties, turnip and haggis or stovies,LOL. Seriously, thanks for that it was special? Happy "Andra'ing". Hope your gran is feeling better now and that she has a great birthday.
