|The beautiful harpers at Eilan Donan|
However, no photos inside doesn't mean no photos outside! We had a great time taking this photo. And apparently a lot of other people did too. Don't be surprised if you see this photo in other places - people from all over the world stopped and took this photo too - tourists from Japan, Korea, Germany and Canada all seemed to be captivated by the harpers - who were clearly having a great time! And we weren't even playing!
From Eilan Donan we traveled on past some delightful sites on to Strathpeffer, the old Victorian Spa town where we had a lovely lunch. And what did we find above the bar? A reel written for the restaurant. We will have to go back, just to learn that tune!
|Zan shares the harps, the lore, and more with us |
in the "showroom" at Ardival Harps
We were sad to leave Zan and Graham and all those captivating harps, but we eventually did go on to our accommodation for the rest of the trip, the Dowan's Hotel in Aberlour. Who knew what adventures would await us in the Spey Valley...
