Gnome Disaster Averted in Birnam Glen

This news has been embargoed for a couple of weeks while investigations are carried out... but imagine my consternation on an early morning walk with the Birnam Glen Dog to find our good friends the BG Gnomes lying head down in the burn (one with a severe injury).  Who could have done such a thing?  Strangest of all, the coins from their collection for Guide Dogs for the Blind were ALSO in the burn.
Anyway, luckily welly boots were the order of the day, so in I got and rescued the gnomes from icy depths, and returned them to their home, where they seem unmoved by their disturbing experience - and still collecting.
Obviously, the proper authorities have been informed, but there's been no sign of a repeat, but questions remain - who, and above all, why?

Living as I do at the foot of Birnam Glen, and loving nothing better than a walk with the dog on quiet tracks and trails in beautiful surroundings, it's hard to tell you just how lucky I feel to live in this part of the world.

Over the years that I've lived here I've seen all manner of Scottish wildlife in and around Birnam Glen, discovered ancient lost paths, the hidden picnic spots of the Victorians, found a forgotten waterfall, sledged down the entire length of the hill with the kids, marvelled at those taken part in the annual running event, tracked down bronze age rock carvings and iron age hillforts... and on it goes.

So this is my homage to a tiny corner of Scotland that has so much to give if you're just prepared to look - please come back from time to time to check on my latest piece of of rose tinted, besotted scribblings, which I hope you will enjoy!
