My Heart's in the Lowlands: Ten Days in Bonny Scotland
About this deal
By the 1780s it is evident that a population large enough to warrant a school was living there and in the immediate vicinity. After escaping from jail where they had "one more week to serve," Laurel and Hardy travel to Scotland as stowaways on a cattle boat, where Laurel (as "Stanley McLaurel") believes he is heir to his grandfather's fortune. I can’t imagine how difficult a time it must have been (and still is) for those whose family live on the other side of the country, or even the other side of the world. Stan and Ollie mistakenly enlist in the army and find themselves posted to the Northwest Frontier in India on a dangerous mission.
The word was taken from the French word for good - "Bonne" - which originated from the Latin word "bonus".The locations were so cool to visit and you had to use very little imagination to envision scenes from the series as they used hardly any cgi…which meant feeling like we were really there.
Deprived of their homes and their livelihoods, my family, like thousands of others, sailed for Canada. Currently five million people live in Scotland, and fifty million people worldwide claim Scottish heritage. A short drive from Inverness lies Culloden Moor, the site of the last battle ever fought on British soil.Use of the latter causes Hardy, trying to demonstrate to Laurel the proper way to use snuff, to fly off an old bridge. One of the most memorable moments is the stirring performances of the Massed Pipes and Drums and Military Bands that emerge from beneath the portcullis gate, playing the rousing battle tunes of Scotland's famed regiments. A word used to describe the weather on days when it is drizzly, grey and just generally a wee bit rubbish. Little did we know the bundle hadn’t actually been activated and we would run out of mobile data within hours and even after various top ups it never did work leaving us at the whim of public wifi and sporadic connectivity for 12 days. We love history, so we enjoyed reading about Scotland’s rich history and admiring many lovely displays.
