Scotland land of my birth full of Legends, Love & Lore for being the
romantic soul that I am I see Scotland through Artistic eyes
Woven into the tapestry of
Scotland are Ancient historic Castles, Cathedrals,
crofts, bothies, fishermen’s cottages for Scotland radiates a special spirit that seeps
through into ones soul.
Land of pilgrims, Poets, authors, artists, but none as great as ‘Our Ain Folk’

And no one loved Scotland more than my late Father James Hamilton Snr he was
in his own words
Born & Bred in Scotland and I love this country through and through!
Being a Hamilton whose family motto is ‘Through’ My Father truly lived up to
the 'House of Hamilton' family motto ‘Through and through!
On his regular visits to Kenya Dad would always sing songs and some of
his favourite sentimental Scottish songs were ‘Bonnie Scotland I Adore
Thee’ & ‘My Ain Folk’ so it is
little wonder that even after living over half of my life in Africa this deep
rooted love of Scotland never left me.

I would often in Kenya visit the‘ Highlands’
where on the shores of Lake Naivasha I would spend time painting writing & penning
poetry both countries Scotland and Kenya so far apart but both with the same rugged heart with deep rooted
soul that resonates within one’s own spirit and soul uniting in a knowing oneness of all.
