A little while back I received a request from Marta Pereira for information on the "Mary, Queen of Scots Way". I didn't know much about this trail but, working in tandem, Marta and I managed to gather enough information to add this long distance walk to Scotland's Finest. Underneath you'll find Marta's stirring and definitely soulful words she would like to share with you.

The meandering Dee
As you may have read in my last blog my wife passed away in the early spring of this year and it’s not difficult to imagine the impact that had on my life. I was shattered. Still am of course and it will take a very long time to recover and find my feet again in this new empty reality. At least 3 years “they” say! Even Scotland’s Finest fell by the wayside. I simply couldn’t be bothered less. Instead, funny enough, I embarked on a number of private ‘projects’, simply to ‘not think of my new situation’.
Beautiful Loch Carron

As the late great Patrick McGoohan put it so succinctly in the motion picture Braveheart: “The trouble with Scotland is that it’s so full of Scots”.
