The Gathering 2009

A long post to share some of the photos from yesterday's visit to The Gathering in Holyrood Park. I can't believe I was able to just leave my flat and walk to an event like this, when so many people have flown thousands of miles to attend.

Yes, it was crowded and it was almost impossible to get anywhere near the highland games area or into the acoustic music and "Taste of Scotland" tents, but I didn't really mind. A sense of gratitude pulsed through the air and people glowed with smiles when I asked to take their photos. It was one of the best afternoons out I have had in some time and I am so glad I went.

The Gathering is part of Homecoming Scotland, which is hosting events all year to celebrate Robert Burns' 250th birthday.
