Scotland - 1
Back in 1874, when my great-grandfather sailed from Scotland to Australia to start a new life, he would never have guessed at the legacy he left for his new family. Now, in the 21st century, my daughter and I rediscovered our 'roots' during the trip of a lifetime. The following four pages  of photographs tell it all. They're up here for me to enjoy, but I hope you like them too. If you would  like a copy of one of them please take a note of the name and number of the picture and email me at  helen@helenspixandwords.com  (they are very cheap - the payment helps me travel some more!)  On this page we start at Glasgow,  drive past Loch Lomond to pretty Inveraray where we visit  Inveraray Castle. From here we seek out our own ruined clan castle, Castle Lachlan, set on the banks of Loch Fyne, then Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe, and drive on to the lovely seaside town of Oban and the Firth of Lorn.
