Finlarig Castle by Killin —

This can only be a flooding Falls of Dochart on our way into Killin again —

With Helen aboard we ran on through Killin to the head of Loch Tay —

where she strode off across the white stuff to visit a well hidden Finlarig Castle —

which is the stuff of nightmares —

Once the home of Duncan Campbell —

Laird of Glenorchy —

Sheriff of Perthshire —

and a whole lot more titles – including the 7th Duke of Argyll —

With estates stretching a hundred miles east to west —

a Hanging Tree for the common folk who didn’t measure up —

and his own beheading pit where the heads of the gentry who crossed his path rolled – both are still here at Finlarig Castle so watch your step —
