      ... go inside and partake of a little refreshment. It was strange to be back there - I think probably about 30 years since I had last been in the hotel. So many changes from when I used to work there part time way back in my late teens. We enjoyed our refreshments in the beer garden overlooking the loch then headed back down to Drymen, stopping off to grab a couple of things from the shop.

      The Battle of Sherifmuir in 1715 saw Rob with mixed allegiances as the Duke of Argyle took the government side against the Jacobites and he was forced to miss the battle.

      ... or a late Queen). Massive wooden tables, intricately carved oak chairs, exquisite stained glass panels made me marvel at the talent of my fellow man.

      On our way out I was considering buying a hard cover book that had pictures and explanations of most of the objects in the collection. However the price tag soon caused me to move on. On our way out we walked through the botanical gardens and an old court yard. We were surprised to find a live horse in one ...
