“What's in a fairytale? Shadows and light, good and true, vile and ugly, frightening and comforting, heroes and heroines who know that belief in their own magic spurs them on. It is their own faith and courage as they reach for an unwritten Destiny that grants their deepest hopes and makes dreams, as if by magic, come true.”

Veronica Dale Thanks for being my new friend here. The photos on your website are stunning, especially of the Fairy Glen and the lovely waterfalls. We visited Scotland several years ago, but it was on a tour that just popped us into Edinburgh for the day. I'll never forget the walk we took through town, though, during a light evening drizzle.
