Comrie, historic Scottish jewel

Comrie is a historic conservation village, recognised for its outstanding beauty and history.
In 79AD the Roman General Agricola chose what are now the outskirts of Comrie as the site to build a fort and temporary marching camp, because of the area's strategic position on the southern fringe of the Highlands. The fort is one of the line of so-called "Glen blocking" forts and includes the legionary fortress of Inchtuthil.

Huntingtower is medieval in origin. it played host to royalty: twice to Mary Queen of Scots and once to her son James VI, who was held against his will there for ten months in 1582 during the episode known as the Ruthven Raid.

Once the crowning place of the Kings of Scots, Scone Palace occupies a unique position in the history of Scotland. A breathtakingly beautiful place of power and mystery and the rightful home of the celebrated Stone of Scone - also known as the Stone of Destiny. Scone Palace is regarded as a national treasure and is revered as the historic jewel in the crown of Scotland.

Dating back to 1450, Falkland Palace is the only Royal Palace in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. Also features a beautiful garden and the oldest Royal Tennis Court in Britain which was built fin 1539 for James V.

Budding gourmets and Spanish enthusiasts indulged their taste-buds as the week long ‘Taste of Spain’ festival concentrated on matters food and drink. This tantalising selection of Spain’s most famous foods and wines included demonstrations by chefs from London’s leading Spanish restaurants and the Spanish regions. There were even cocktails being made out of Harveys Sherry. It’s part of a push to encourage British people to sample the Spanish experience, and hopefully encourage even more of us to take a trip to Spain on holiday. To see just what was served up, take a look at this video. less

Sidney and I decided that these exotic lands offered far too many other wonders for us to spend our limited amount of time there huffing and puffing at high altitudes. A sub-title for this program might have been "Adventures in the Himalayas without trekking". less

The tradition of Khmer dance has been cultivated for at least 1,000 years but it has been threatened in recent times during periods of political turmoil. The Apsara Dance School was started in 1998 by Mrs. Vong Metry to revive this ancient and valuable art. The school trains orphan children in the Apsara dance arts and grows them into young professional dancers. It receives the endorsement of the Ministry of Culture and its main support from private donations. In 2003, UNESCO declared the dance a "Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Culture", and laid plans for a regeneration of the art form.
