J&C Sept - Day 1
It has begun! We're on the path of Jamie and Claire in the late summer / early autumn glow. The colours are changing from multi-greens and purple to golden yellow, soft purple, bits of red. Amidst our Outlandish Travellers on the September tour we have our own Jamie and Claire, known better as Mike and Rhonda. They are our cute couple, holding hands as they climb the hill together to visit the standing stones.

Mike: Still adjusting to achieving a long time goal of just getting here. Hilltop picnic and losing myself in the scenery. Out to group dinner and first time wearing my new kilt in public - nothing but positive comments so far. Being here with someone special makes it fantastic.
|A special moment with the stones and the hills|
|Oh, it's about 4000 years old...|
Rhonda: Spent the afternoon on a wee hillside, it was beautiful and sunny, Samantha read the passage from when Claire went through the stones while we all looked out over the mountains. You could hear the sheep baahing and the birds chirping. It was a very moving moment, to picture yourself where Claire may have been when she walked back in time.
