What A Difference A Year Makes!

It’s been almost a year (March 13th 2020), since I was put on medical leave from my job in Canada because of the dangers of Coronavirus and my compromised health.

So, with that in mind, here is a story I discovered about the “faery pipes”. Made by a MacIntyre piper more than 800 years ago,Continue reading “Scottish legend of the enchanted ‘Faery’ bagpipes of Kinlochmoidart”

Scotland’s Hidden Secrets
