DSCN1597According to the 42nd Royal Highlanders’ (of Lafayette, Indiana) Facebook page, it’s National Tartan Day over in the United States, so I thought I’d share this photograph of the 42nd’s spiritual home, Balhousie Castle, which I visited on the 19th March. The 42nd Royal Highlanders play the pipes and drums as their Scottish forebears would have done, with traditional instruments and 18th Century uniforms, all around the Midwest and if you have a look at their Facebook page you’ll see them playing outside of Balhousie Castle back in 2013.
