I particularly enjoyed the article with a link to Cawdor Castle as my maiden name was Calder & my elder sister is Muriel. We would like to be able to claim it as our ancestral home but unfortunately cannot find enough evidence to back it up.!!
Also the reference to Scone Palace which is only a couple of miles from my birthplace, Perth & a very pleasant to visit.
After retiring as a police officer in Perth, my father worked as a tourist guide at the Palace & I believe the Earl of Mansfield & family are still the current residents.
Even though I've lived in Australia for almost 50 years I'm still very Scottish at heart.
I enjoy the monthly newsletters & generally find a topic that takes my interest. Congratulations.
I also enjoy the arcade games with the friendly rivalry of scoring against a few other staunch players, but mainly because it helps to keep the old brain ticking over.
