Excellent. I remember this one, of course. One of your first here? Or an early one, at least.

Thanks, David. Relatively recent...last year in some version, I think...but yes indeed much like one or two earlier ones.

Well done Seth - the naming of places! I like that no fussing reality wrapped in the appeal of another language 'Tor Mor, Bruach Mhor: big hill'.

Thanks, Mac. :D

I should say that a neighbour thinks Bruach Mhor may be more mysterious. It would be nice to think so. There are some intriguing names in the area. As I have mentioned in connection with poems on various occasions I am especially fond of the fairy hill names.

I remember this one, Seth. Great poem with a delightfully peaceful touch running through each line.
It's almost melancholic. I can see why you're attracted to those names.

Best
