    One of the great things about walking/climbing in Scotland is that the hill/mountain is never the same two days in a row. My favorite Trust Property is Stob Dearg Glencoe. When I am down or if I have to make an important decision I will climb to the top of a Munro. For me sitting at the top, with my soggy cheese & tomato sandwich helps to put my life into perspective. These hills have been here for millions of years and unless we ‘do’ something really silly, these hills will be here for millions of years to come. In comparison I will be here for lucky if I am here for 80 – 90 years so in the grand scheme of things I really am quite insignificant.

    When I first discovered Arduaine Garden several years ago I found it totally captivating. A garden for all seasons, with many rare and interesting plants as well as familiar favourites. Whichever of the footpaths one chooses to follow the informal layout of flowerbeds and lawns, rockeries and water-gardens and the famous rhododendrons in Spring - all protected by the shelter of lovely trees - is sheer delight, enhanced by the coastal setting and splendid view over Loch Melfort. Not long ago referred to as the Secret Garden, Arduaine is a gem of peace and tranquillity wherein I find a sense of quiet joy. It would certainly be my choice to pass on to the next generation to enjoy as I and many other have done.
