The Highland Games blog is a splendid idea

But a blog without sound is somewhat lacking in cheer.

Fear not! for a solution has now been found

With a photomontage of Bressuire Castle grounds.

Highland Games 2007_

The photos take us way down Memory Lane

While we wait for the Games to come round again.

Athletes and musicians from Games of yore –

Nostalgia is guaranteed, that’s for sure!


The sound track goes back to 2007

When sweet strains of singing rose to heaven:

Emmanuel Boulanger’s Bressuire choir

Opened the Games, some notes low, some higher.



Flowers of Scotland was the song they chose

A most traditional air as everyone knows.

And our resident piper Jacques Dransard

Made the bagpipes resound both near and afar.
