The local with the piano story was a genuine guy named Ronnie. A few seconds after meeting him, we were in his car travelling the narrow roads in the area on a personal tour. First, he took us to a tucked away castle in the woods, and then way up in the Highlands to marvel at a stunning view of the loch, which was encased by a seamless backdrop of
mountain and cloud. The stories fl owed and we learned tons of the local history. We’d bump into Ronnie most days at the Dores Inn, and catch him up on the details of our search over a cup of coffee. We enjoyed his company, and all of his assistance, immensely.
