We walked today with our group, up in Perthshire, near Comrie and my photo shows a long view of the area. The obelisk centre top of the picture, among the trees, is Melvilles Monument, standing sentinel over Comrie. (Easier to see it in large)
Built on the peak of Dunmore in 1811 it commemorates the first Lord Melville, Henry Dundas, who was the Chief Minister in Scotland under William Pitt the Younger and who was regarded as the uncrowned King of Scotland. The obelisk is 72 feet in height .
We had a wonderful day, weather was warm and sunny; as we neared the wildlife centre which was the end of our walk, it got overcast. However, we finished our walk dry, and headed to the Royal Hotel in Comrie for a drink before going home. We sat outside in the garden with our drinks, and just as we were about to leave, the rain came on. Heavily.
So we were lucky...... we didn't get wet on our walk!!!!
