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.
David Gray Gravestone Auld Aisle Cemetery Kirkintilloch East Dunbartonshire Scotland [00:45]
Tour Scotland video of the David Gray gravestone in the Auld Aisle cemetery on visit to Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire. David Gray, born 29th January 1838, died 3rd of December 1861, was a Scottish poet. The son of a handloom weaver, Gray was born at Merkland. He began to write poetry for The Glasgow Citizen and began his idyll on the Luggie, the little stream that ran through Merkland. He was buried in the Auld Aisle, where he had often wandered, and which is also the subject of his song, and, on the 29th July, 1865, a plain obelisk was erected to his memory, subscribed for by his admirers. David wrote his own epitaph, " Below lies one whose name was traced in sand, He died, not knowing what it was to live ; Died, while the first sweet consciousness of manhood. And maiden thought electrified his soul, Faint beatings in the calyx of the rose. Bewildered reader ! pass without a sigh, In a proud sorrow ! There is life with God, In other kingdom of a sweeter air; In Eden every flower is blown. Amen. Thus lived and died one who left a few words only behind him, His Luggie, poem opens with the wish of the writer that his thought and verse may run as smoothly as his beloved river: That impulse which all beauty gives the soul, Is languaged as I sing. For fairer stream Rolled never golden sand into the sea, Made sweeter music than the Luggie, gloom'd By glens whose melody mingles with her own. The uttered name my inmost being thrills, A word beyond a charm; and if this lay ...
Copy of Stirling,Scotland (Stirling University) [06:24]
Stirling (Gaelic: Sruighlea, Scots: Stirlin) is a city and former ancient burgh in Scotland, and is at the heart of the wider Stirling council area. The city is clustered around a large fortress and mediæval old-town beside the River Forth. Historically it was strategically important as the "Gateway to the Highlands", with its position near the boundary between the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands, and its crossing of the Forth, the nearest to the river mouth. It is a centre for local government, higher education, retail, and light industry. Its population (as of the 2001 census) was 41243, making it the smallest city in Scotland. One of the principal royal strongholds of the Kingdom of Scotland, Stirling was created a Royal burgh by King David I in 1130, which it remained until 1975, when the county of Stirlingshire was absorbed into Central Region. In 2002, as part of Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee, Stirling was granted city status. Originally a Stone Age settlement, Stirling has been strategically significant since at least the Roman occupation of Britain, due to its naturally defensible crag and tail hill (latterly the site of Stirling Castle), and its commanding position at the foot of the Ochil Hills on the border between the Lowlands and Highlands, at the lowest crossing point of the River Forth. It remained the river's lowest crossing until the construction of the Kincardine Bridge further downstream in the 1930s. It is supposed that Stirling is the fortress ...
