A Sea of Tartan

Our Southern guests were tickled this weekend to raise their blinds in the morning, only to discover a “sea of tartan” in the backyard!  (Our daughters’ highland dance recital & tea was Friday night and I brought the table runners home to launder!)

For travelers who are interested in celebrating Gaelic Culture, there are some upcoming opportunities to see more tartan:

International Gathering of the Clans across Nova Scotia, June 24th & 25th

The Gathering of the Clans in Pugwash, July 1st, 2011

The Scotdance Canada Championship Series in Antigonish, July 3rd – 7th

The Highland Games in Antigonish, July 3rd – 10th, 2011

Each of these events are located about an hour’s drive from The Belgravia.

Ciad Mile Failte!

* And just out of interest, the Clarks (Anne’s side of the family) were from Insch, near Aberdeen, in Scotland.
