Found in Photo_376 (album). To: Miss J B MacMillan, Carsphairn, Kirkcudbrightshire. Athol Palace Hotel, Pitlochry 24-7-23. This is a bridge over the “Tummel”. We were over it yesterday. The supports at each end are tipped with gold and it looks pretty when the sun is shining. There has been a lot of rain but nearly always at night so we have got very little of it. We go home on Friday. Kind regards to all M. Brown
