Tea in the garden, Glenquithel

In his book 'Where I Belong', Duncan Macpherson describes this part of his garden at Glenquithel, his home in Kyle of Lochalsh. "From my hill-top, as I sit on a grassy plateau beneath a sheltering pine-tree, I can feast my eyes on the Cuillins gleaming in the morning sunshine." Here, he is with his daughter Mary and some visiting friends. This shot was taken by Mr Dalby Peters, though in another photograph taken on the same occasion, Macpherson himself is behind the camera. Mr and Mrs Peters were annual visitors to the area and had become good friends of the Macphersons
