Scottish Lenses - The Gathering

Updated on May 15, 2014

There Can Be Only One

There Can Be Only One, and for centuries we have waited for the time of the Gathering, so now, with the strike of a key, and the publishing of this lens, the power of the Quickening shall be revealed.

They are immortal. Born in Scotland many, many years ago, they are not alone. For centuries, they have battled the forces of darkness, they cannot die, unless you take their lens, and with it, their power.

In the end, There Can Be Only One gathering of the lenses. This is the One!

The Source

In a world without end, their will is eternal. But a quest for the source will awaken all immortals.

The Source is the story of these Immortals as they quest to locate the ultimate Squidoo Lens. We await the arrival of the remaining immortals.

Immortal BillyBraveheart

He is BillyBraveheart, a Scotsman born in 1958, in a small town called Musselburgh, approx eight miles south of Edinburgh, the Capital of Scotland, and for the gathering of the lenses, to see his offering, open the sporran :-)

Immortal WordCustard

WordCustard a professional writer/author at heart, who for centuries has been empowered with the safety and security of the sacred immortals manuscripts. A creative spirit at heart, with an exceptional art of face painting, it has been said that she is the one who painted William Wallace (Braveheart) before going forth into battles!

Poke the pair and be whisked to another dimension!

Immortal Annmackiemiller

Ann Miller a Scottish Immortal lass born in Kirriemuir in Angus. Trained as a nurse and midwife, graduated with honors from the University of St Andrews and trained in several complimentary health disciplines. In her time Ann has been not only a nurse and midwife but a tour guide in Japan , a librarian in Dubai , an aid worker in Albania , Kosovo and Tanzania , she taught Zambian children to speak English with a Scottish accent and she ran a sub-post office in a small Scottish town on the east coast of Scotland. She has been a writer everywhere, writing since childhood and now combines her love of words with her love of photography by creating stories in words and pictures.

This is of course her cover story, Ann is a formidable ambassador of the clan, she is an immortal. Get up close and personal, check the time on her watch and be mysterious taken to her Source.

The First Scottish Settlers!

Ancient Scotland

History tells us that in Ancient Scotland the Ice Age formed about 70,000BC and grew to greater heights around 18,000BC because of the freezing weather conditions, however, the climate eventually changed over the years and with it came the melting of glaciers, where around 10,000BC all glaciers had virtually disappeared. Nature began taking it's course, with trees and bushes starting to form came wild life seeking food.

Soon after, and during the warmer periods visitors started to arrive in Scotland but mostly for hunting expeditions only, once the warmer weather deteriorated, so did the visitors!

Around 9000BC with an improvement on weather conditions came the first settlers of Scotland, and along with them, the immortals were born! Life was harsh and tough, accommodation was formed with the use of animal skins, tree branches and brushwood. Wild animals were constantly hunted, and Scots smoked their catches over wood fires in order to preserve for the harsh winter conditions. Fishing was pretty popular as well as the gathering of fruits and to assist with every day of life tools were created from antlers, stones and wood.

By 7000BC, settlers, commonly known as Nomads, (those who move from place to place to obtain food, find pasture for livestock, and make a living) had begun to remain in Ancient Scotland on a permanent basis, and so begins the legend of the Scots and Immortals!
