"A Scottish Wind in the Willows on high end skunk."

"I enjoy Kate's stories..."
"A fun and spooky read..."

"The characters are so involving and
loveable that you do want them to really exist. It does read like you've
stumbled across someone's long lost diary from and alternate timeline/universe.
I quickly got into the story and loved every second of reading it...
total gem of a read by an author who deserves a lot more recognition."

A short walk on a lovely Spring-like day to Rumbling Bridge, near Dunkeld.  About three miles up the A822 after you turn left off the A9 heading north.  It's a popular spot. Like most locals I've been there many times over the years and usually walk through from the Hermitage.  However I was short of time today so just drove to the car park and tottered the hundred or so yards to have a look at the river, which was in spate after heavy rain and a snow melt.
This is where Millais painted his famous The Sound of Many Waters 'en plein air' as was his habit in Perthshire.  I don't think the place has changed much since his day.  The picture is now in Fyvie Castle, Aberdeenshire, and I went to see it several years ago.  It's been done up a bit by the National Trust, but Fyvie is still a creepy place, well worth a visit.
