From the beautiful Argyll song Carradale Glen
I leave you with grieving
And sadness of mind,
While memories linger
Of hearts warm and kind.
For ever and ever
Beyond human ken,
My spirit shall wander
In Carradale Glen.
“….Time spent in Dalriada, the Argyll heartland will leave you with a great sense of belonging, peace and understanding”
