History of the Caber Toss posted by Clan Donald Queensland..taken from Internet source. But first, what is the caber toss? It is a heavy athletic event at Highland/Scottish Games. A caber is a 15 - 23 feet long log, usually peeled, weighing between 70 and 200 pounds (depending on who you ask, and the type of tree). The athlete squats with his feet flat on the ground and wedges the caber between his shoulder and neck, pushes upward with his hands, and lifts it slightly, just enough to slide his interlocked hands beneath the smaller end. (During the event, no one can assist him in lifting it.) Then, with the caber resting against his shoulder, he lifts and stands upright. He must balance the log in the air. Remember, the heavier, larger end of the log is up, so he may stagger around a bit until it is balanced. He takes a short run forward and flips the log in the air. He must make the large end hit the ground and the small end flip over and land straight ahead, away from him. This is an event of accuracy ra ...

Hello, I am a newbie both for this group and to the Schutzhund/IPO, I have done some competitive Obedience with my dog previously. I would like to try our strength for BH.

Is it possible to enter for BH without being affiliated with a Club? If yes, where can I find details (dates, location etc) for such events? Do I need any specific paperwork? Is it a problem if my dog is not a GSD? Thank you very much for adding me :)

Comment By Finlay Macleoid. AMAZING WHAT CAN BE DONE Pride in language, culture comes into full flower in Cape Breton JOHN DEMONT SENIOR WRITER ‘There’s been a reawakening of the culture that’s got nothing to do with tartans and the other Scottish stereotypes’ Kenneth MacKenzie poses in front of a Mabou sign on Highway 19. Like his two brothers, the musician speaks fluent Gaelic. (RYAN TAPLIN / STAFF) The most perplexing thing about the recent row involving Cape Breton’s Gaelic College wasn’t the furor over the decision to add “royal” to the name of the St. Anns institution. It was that someone was surprised that a proposal revisiting a centuries-old moment of infamy would spark outrage on an island where place names hearken back to the Scottish Highlands and roadside signs are routinely written in “the Gaelic.” An island where the music hasn’t changed much since the days of Bonnie Prince Charlie. And where the most famous work of literature — written by the late Alistair MacLeod ...

Happy Nessie Day. History Channel says: Although accounts of an aquatic beast living in Scotland's Loch Ness date back 1,500 years, the modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster is born when a sighting makes local news on May 2, 1933. The newspaper Inverness Courier related an account of a local couple who claimed to have seen "an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface." The story of the "monster" (a moniker chosen by the Courier editor) became a media phenomenon, with London newspapers sending correspondents to Scotland and a circus offering a 20,000 pound sterling reward for capture of the beast. Loch Ness, located in the Scottish Highlands, has the largest volume of fresh water in Great Britain; the body of water reaches a depth of nearly 800 feet and a length of about 23 miles. Scholars of the Loch Ness Monster find a dozen references to "Nessie" in Scottish history, dating back to around A.D. 500, when local Picts carved a strange aquatic creature into standing stones near Loch Ness. The ea ...

Okay, just to give an update. I jumped on my page today to try to put some pieces together. Robert McCombs came from Ireland in with our great-great-great-great-great Grandpa George McCombs sometime just prior to the Revolutionary War as George was born in Ireland in 1754. It appears we probably came from Northern Ireland, but I have also been told we came from County Kerry or County Cork. Details are a little harder from prior to that. It appears we came originally from Scotland in the Scottish Highlands. Our last name then was McComie. George settled in the Washington, PA. area (He died in that area and is buried there). His son, John M McCombs, moved to the area I was in yesterday. He died in 1866 and is buried in the Allen Grove Cemetery. John M. built the Allen Grove Church and preached there periodically. His son, John William , our great-great-great Grandpa was born there in 1809 but moved to Ohio and died in 1879 in Leesburg, Ohio according to records. His son, Benjamin F. ...

If you had the chance to go to: a) the Scottish Highlands with a small side trip to London b) Germany (for sure Berlin and the Black Forest Region) c) Greece (Athens, Mykonos, Delphi and Santorini for sure) which would you pick? Would be at least a 2 week trip, a month if I'm real lucky.
Yes! A beautiful day in the Scottish Highlands and a lovely swim in Loch an t-Seilich. Water 6C but minimal wind and lovely warm sunshine make getting changed so much easier :)

Currently headed up to the Scottish Highlands with two paintings:-) The scenery going by is far too much for my painter's eyes and I'm torn between simply enjoying it 'pure' to burn it into my memories, or take pictures of everything for future paintings. So far I've landed on the 'memory' decision but that may change if things get any more prettier than they already are. Will post pictures of the paintings once they've been delivered (they are a surprise gift), very excited to share these two :)
Next Monday i will start my visit to Shillong. this place is one of the important tourist destinations in the northeast INDIA . It is often referred to as the “Scotland of the East” due to its striking similarity with the Scottish highlands. It is also the gate way to Cherrapunjee, earlier the wettest place in the world.

I was so obsessed by Glen Affric and it's surroundings (where the heart of TOO DEEP FOR TEARS is set) and with the characters living in my head, that I was compelled to write a sequel, and then another. ALL WE HOLD DEAR, Book II in the trilogy-set entirely in the Scottish Highlands-will go live on Amazon, B&N, Kobo & iTunes on April 17th. I'm so excited to make available the continuation of Mairi, Ailsa and Alanna's stories.

A little bit of the Scottish Highlands came to St Elizabeth's House, Plympton, Devon yesterday!! Jane & Josh had a fantastic day with sunshine from wake up until sunset and then the sky full of stars!! It is still March isn't it? Beautifully romantic with a party of note to end, perfect from start to finish!! Not to mention American Football, a girl v boy pyramid build off (the girls won) and even Maori War Lords in the studio!! Very good fun all round!!
The minister of a wee church in the Scottish Highlands was preaching a strong sermon about the evils of drink, and kept telling the congregation not to imbibe too frequently. He concluded: "We'll no' mak' this sermon owre personal, but if a short, bald-headed laird sittin' in the corner o' the east gallery pew tak's it to himsel', I canna help it."

Mercedes AMG Petronas (Mercedes): 6 – Nico Rosberg (Germany)- 44 – Lewis Hamilton (Britain) The early championship favourites. The driver line-up remains the same but there is change on the management side, with Ross Brawn relinqushing the Principal role and off fishing somewhere in the Scottish Highlands. Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe are running the team in tandem. Mercedes should be setting the pace, at least in the early races, and have plenty of testing laps in the bag. Will Rosberg get the better of Hamilton? The German will be helped by a less aggressive style and strategic nous. Hamilton has raw speed and sheer talent in abundance but that may count for less in a ‘fuel-saving’ formula likely to reward smoother driving. GP247 Prediction: Likely to be hard to beat early on in the season by virtue of their power unit being the benchmark early on in this new turbo era, while the W05 appears to be a solid race car. Most intriguing will be the Hamilton versus Rosberg contest, although they are frien ...

Those in the Scottish Highlands, Islands, Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight and Isle of Man - this one's for you. We've had a LOT of feedback from you complaining about postage to you. We definitely agreed, but couldn't really do anything about it, because that's what our carriers charge. Today, we're trialling a limited re-introduction of Royal Mail services to your areas - for much less than the ~£14.99 we did charge. So, from right now: Up to 1KGish will be £4.99 Over 1KG and less than 2KGish will be £5.99. We can't guarantee we'll keep this service forever. Volumes to these areas are quite low anyway, it don't send enough to justify a collection from Royal Mail, so someone needs to drop these orders off at our sorting office. We'll see how it goes though. I read one comment today about someone who's ordering and having it delivered to a friend on the mainland, only to have them send it on to them by Royal Mail to the Isle of Wight. It wasn't lost on us just how ludicrous it is. So we agreed on a ...
In case you might be interested. I was a saddo and emailed Pret about their delish new salmon sushi salads and sourcing/sustainability - not sure this really means anything at all. Hi Francesca, Thank you for you're kind message about our new sushi salads. The vast majority of Pret’s farmed salmon is raised to the Freedom Food standard in the Scottish Highlands. We are working towards all of our supply to meet this standard. Our suppliers ensure that high animal husbandry and stewardship is maintained, and that any environmental impacts are negated through activities such as constantly monitoring the water quality. We hope this helps? - Pret A Manger

I went to the Scottish Highlands games here in Central Florida. I was amazed at all the family tents set up, and the fact several had FTDNA testing information for their lines. In fact, I traded information with another group Administrator. I am now thinking I need to go to more functions, like this one. They did not list Kinnard as Scottish, my grandmothers kin, so I need to do some research on her line's origins. They maybe Anglo Saxon, Irish, or even Fict.
Leggings History Leggings of the Native Americans Karl May Museum Radebeul Leggings in various forms and under various names have been worn for warmth and protection by both men and women throughout the centuries. The separate hose worn by men in Europe from the 14th to 16th centuries (the Renaissance period) were a form of leggings, as are the trews of the Scottish Highlands. Separate leggings of buckskin leather were worn by some Native Americans. These were adopted by some Long Hunters, French fur trappers, and later by mountain men. They are the leatherstockings of James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales. The Buckskins, were mostly a dull grey brain-tan, not the bright, glossy vegetable tanned leather commonly used today. Cowboys wore leggings of buckskin to protect from chapping caused by riding, wear and tear to their pants, and bites from animals, such as snakes or insects in the scruff, such as ticks. In many places, especially in colder countries such as: Russia or Korea men and women conti ...

Title: Jeffrey Archer. Schedule: 19th February, 2014 One of the most colourful British authors of recent years has without a doubt been Jeffrey Archer. His storytelling technique and - most important of all - his instinct for self-publicity have turned him into an international celebrity. However, many years ago, when he was still a virtual unknown, I was heading north to join a group of mountaineering friends in the Scottish Highlands. I had borrowed Jeffrey’s first novel “Not a Penny War, Not a Penny Less” from our local library. After several hours driving, my wife and I decided to find a hotel where we could spend the night. “What we need,” my wife said, “is an old Scottish mansion where they serve pheasant for dinner and the local laird pops in for a wee dram and there’s a lovely warm room where I can retire early while you drink to your heart’s content in the all-night bar.” We spotted a hotel sign ahead which claimed to be the ancestral seat of the Macdonald clan and after crui .. ...

I read in today's Sunday Mail that wildlife presenter Chris Packham wants to see wolves introduced back into the Scottish I adore wolves..but I also adore my country and the freedom to walk the hills and surroundings in relative safety.Scotland has been without these beautiful for centuries,and me personally would not want to see wolves introduced back into the wilds of Scotland,for many reasons.

About to head off from Nairn in the North of Scotland, back down thru the Highlands to the village of Pitlochry. Yesterday's drive up through the Scottish Highlands was stunning. Quite a few stops at the sites and villages along the way, however the highlight was most definitely the magnificent Ben Nevis Ranges. Alison was quite overawed with the snow capped mountains and the very unique highland backdrops, there really is no other place quite like the Scottish Highlands. The Commandoes Memorial along the way was quite moving with so many recent memorials to the famous green berets soldiers that had lost their lives at such a young age during the Gulf War. The weather was rather bleak as we approached Loch Ness, however yet again we were lucky and the weather within minutes had changed dramatically and allowed Alison to get some rather good shots of the world famous Loch, pity we didn't actually spot Nessie, but then again it was a wee bit cold for her to pop her head out. Arrived at Nairn just on dusk, b ...
No sale for world's largest Scotch whisky bottle The world’s largest bottle of single malt Scotch whisky – a 105.3 litre bottle of Tomintoul – has failed to sell at auction. While the bottle was expected to reach between £100,000 and £150,000 at Glasgow’s McTear’s auction house yesterday, bids did not meet the bottle’s reserve. The 14-year-old specially-commissioned bottling, which stands at 1,275mm tall and 415 mm wide, has now been returned to its owners. As reported in The Spirits Business last October, the record-breaking bottle was put on display at The Scotch Whisky Experience in Edinburgh for approximately one year. It was the brainchild of two businessmen from the village of Tomintoul in the Scottish Highlands and it contains enough whisky to fill over 150 standard-size 70cl bottles. Steven McGinty, whisky valuer for McTears, told Herald Scotland: “It was unique but I’m not going to say I was disappointed because it will earn what the owners wanted under different circumstances. ...
