A touch of Scotland in the movie Braveheart

A touch of Scotland.

There is something gripping about the people and history of Scotland, and while I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the classic movie, Braveheart, the primal drama captured my heart.  Question … what do you think, did the picture of Wallace (Mel Gibson)  leaning his forehead against his ladylove stir you?  For me, it left an impression of painful but unavoidable destiny. Do you wonder how the custom of kilts came about?  My own non-validated thoughts go back to the Romans.  Great freedom to leap and run, but I don’t think it would be practical on horseback.

For such a wee country, the Highlands are spectacular.  Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
