  1. Dear Peter,

    Just a note to say I really enjoyed your little film about Mavisbank House {Toad of Toad Hall).
    When I was 10, my best friend Peter McMahon and I used to fish for Perch in ‘Archie’s Pond’. We were always scared that Archie would catch us, and indeed one day he did – shouting to us from the steps of the big house, to ‘B*gg*r Off’; but instead of running away, we approached him, and asked if it was alright to fish in his wee loch.
    ‘Of course’ he replied, ‘any time you like’.
    Coincidentally, I used to live in Kippen, and know the Hole of Sneath & Whale’s Gullet very well, yet I too have never, or should I say ‘not yet’, found ‘Henrietta’s Grave’…
    Once again, a charming little movie!

    Best wishes, Maris.

    1. Dear Maris,
      How kind of you to be in touch.

      Archie Stevenson was some man!

      The Boquhan glen is so beautiful. A special place.

      Thank you for watching some of my wee home-made films and I am so glad you enjoyed them

      aye Peter
