Trooping the new colours of the Atholl Highlanders :: Scotland 2006

On the way down from Kylesku to Kinross we decided to break the journey at Blair Castle as it looked a nice place to stop. By chance we arrived about an hour before the Atholl Highlanders trooped their first new colours for 20 years and only their forth since the regiment was raised in 1839.
