Where all those runaway marriages took place.
David making notes at one of the McBlain grave stones in Dailly, Scotland. It was so weathered that we could barely read the carving.
Robert the Bruce statue at Stirling Castle, Stirling, Scotland. My brother, tongue firmly planted in his cheek, says "Aren't all Scots descended from the Robert the Bruce?"
Dumfries House, Ayrshire, Scotland. I found many fine architectural details in this early Robert Adam designed house to include in my stories.
We found the tiny hamlet, Auchenhalrig, Scotland, where my ancestors lived from the 1600s.
