For this leg of my series, we are back in 1954 with photos taken by my paternal grandfather. These photos are from the Highlands of Scotland, north of Edinburgh and I have identified one of the hotels (the Breadalbane Hotel) shown as being in Perthshire, Scotland and is still operated today under the same name. Unfortunately, my grandfather left no descriptions for any of these slides so I can't provide any detail of the specific locations beyond this.
There are a few shots of my grandparents with the blue Nash that they were driving. this was an American car with the steering wheel on the left, unlike the British autos that are the opposite.
As you can see, the Highlands of Scotland are a beautiful, dramatic and wide open land, not unlike parts of our own West, but with much more history and, of course, castles! So enjoy today's post and tomorrow we'll be in Ireland from my trip in October 1986.
(1980) which appeared on PBS with one program of the series hosted by Michael Palin. I have included the last part of the program that has Michael Palin traveling through the Scottish Highlands and ending up in Kyle of Lochalsh where he is given a sign from the railway station. As the program ends he is headed off in a local ferry.
