    An old gold mine in Scotland is being resurrected by Australian company Scotgold Resources Limited who are awaiting planning permission to operate the Cononish Goldmine in Tyndrum that they bought in 1997, when gold prices were too low to make the previous venture viable.

    Since gold prices have now risen to record highs, the venture is very much a going concern and the gold mining company should see a return on their initial investment in as little as two years from opening. read more

    From a height of land, out over the clear waters of Loch Ern floats the wild, pure lament of a lone piper. A pibroch as deep and dark as "old Ben Voirloch's sleepy shade", the haunting music of the pipes calls to something fierce and free, something in the very depths of the soul. The heart of the piper seems to speak directly into our hearts, of sorrow, of aching-loss, but yet speaks it with such beauty that our longing is somehow eased. Such is the magic of the Scottish bagpipes. read more
