Birks Of Aberfeldy Perthshire Scotland [01:18]
Tour Scotland video of photographs of the Birks of Aberfeldy on a visit to Highland Perthshire. This is a popular Woodland walk by the town of Aberfeldy. The Birks of Aberfeldy is also a song lyric written for a pre existing melody in 1787 by Robert Burns. He was inspired to write it by the Falls of Moness and the birch trees of Aberfeldy during a tour of the Scottish Highlands with his friend William Nicol. Now simmer blinks on flow'ry braes, And o'er the crystal streamlet plays, Come, let us spend the lightsome days In the birks of Aberfeldy Bonnie lassie, will ye go, will ye go, will ye go, Bonnie lassie, will ye go To the birks of Aberfeldy? The little birdies blithely sing, While o'er their heads the hazels hing; Or lightly flit on wanton wing In the birks of Aberfeldy! The braes ascend like lofty wa's, The foaming stream, deep-roaring, fa's, O'er-hung wi'fragrant spreading shaws, The birks of Aberfeldy. The hoary cliffs are crown'd wi'flowers, White o'er the linns the burnie pours, And, rising, weets wi' misty showers The birks of Aberfeldy. Let fortune's gifts at random flee, They ne'er shall draw a wish frae me, Supremely blest wi' love and thee In the Birks of Aberfeldy A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.
