Write a poem here... Sir Walter Scott did! HIS is the Trossachs in Scotland, that wonderful wilderness and setting for THE LADY OF THE LAKE. In the introduction to his famous work, Scott said: "This poem, the action of which lay among scenes so beautiful, and so deeply imprinted on my recollections, was a labor of love." And still so apt today, these viv idly descriptive lines from its first canto The wanderer's eye could barely view The summer heaven's delicious blue So wondrous wild, the whole might seem The scenery of a fairy dream. Only such a poet could do justice to scenes such as these - to mountain masses, soft green meadows, and silver lakes tumbling one into another. Loch Achray, Loch Katrine, Loch Lomond. This unspoiled heart of Scotland might well mark the high point of your trip to Britain-yet it has rivals in the gently rolling countryside of England, the green valleys of Wales, the glens of Northern Ireland. In this fascinating country, there's no end to the poems you can write-or feel. See your Travel Agent and come to Britain.
