Love this newsletter

I have gotten the Scottish Snippets newsletter for years and have always enjoyed it. I thought it would be nice to share it with some Celts.

Although the "Scottish Snippets" newsletter is now produced every second
week, the "Colour Supplement" of recently taken, larger-size graphics of
Scottish scenes, flora and fauna is continuing on a weekly basis.

This week's collection focuses on the Firth of Clyde:

~ The Firth of Clyde, looking north towards Loch Long;
~ Western Ferries terminus at Hunter's Quay on Cowal, with "Sound of Suna"
ferry departing;
~ The statue to "Highland Mary", immortalised by Scotland's national poet,
Robert Burns;
~ Ruins of Castle Toward, south of Dunoon, owned by the Lamonts and
captured and burnt by the Campbells;
~ The new Castle Toward, built as a mansion house in the 1820s;
~ A Treecreeper bird, running up a tree trunk as its name implies, probing
the bark with its curved bill;
~ A brightly coloured Anemone in the walled garden at Culzean Castle
Country Park.

For all these graphics and further information, see:
