St. Michael's Parish Church, Linlithgow

My husband had the privilege of being minister of this , the most beautiful, historic parish church in Scotland for 26 years. It is of cathedral like proportions and contains some notable stained glass, particularly the modern stained glass artist, Crear Macartney's finest work installed in 1992 to celebrate the 750th anniversary of the church's consecration..

My choice has to be the Glasgow School of Art Mackintosh Building... a stunning piece of architecture that will never date. It is the only art school building worthy of the subject taught within... an inspirational building for us students!

My Treasured place is Fyrish Monument, on Fyrish hill in Evanton, Rosshire. Commissioned in 1792 by the Sir Hector Munro (presumably an ancestor on my mother's side) the monument is a place of pilgrimage whenever we visit Scotland and the area from which my family originates. The climb to the top of hill offers fantastic views and once on top one can be transported back in time to when Sir Hector provided the local population employment during the highland clearances.
