[ Highlands ] Ancient Stone Circles & Hairy Coo

 

We didn’t get a pic of the famous HAIRY COOS in Scotland so we were hunting over the places for one to take a pic of. We finally found one right under the barracks blew up by the Highlanders who heard that their Bonnie Prince Charlie had left them to their own fate after the defeat on the battlefield of Culloden. Too bad the coo just didn’t want to turn its head toward us! It didn’t even bother to look up at us. It just went about its own business! We waited forever but yah.. that was just too bad.

After the depressing history lesson, we went to see one of the most ancient stone circles. We were chanting and Ohmmming in the ruins. & According to our guide, some people can feel some “special” energy from the stones in the circle (as demonstrated by himself here).

The area around the stone circle (Clava Cairns) was very peaceful and quiet.

By the River Tay is Dunkeld – a small town (along with Birnam) that’s associated with MACBETH! That’s right. According Shakespeare, Macbeth said ” I will not be afraid of death and bane/ Till Birnam Forest come to Dunsinane”.
