So far I’ve struggled to pick and choose a song for the previous days topics but todays jumped out at me.
Today’s song is Aberfeldy’s Tom Weir. I can’t hear this song without thinking back to my hillwalking days with my Grandad. Tom Weir was an iconic Scottish TV presenter who walked the length and breadth of the country for his shows. It’s well documented that from the age of 10 onwards I went hillwalking with my Grandad every two weeks until he was too old to come out with us. Almost all the photos I have of him are of him standing there with his walking stick and his wee woolly hat. I can’t listen to the lyrics without any of those pictures jumping into my head.
