Dear House of Gordon,

I so look forward to being with you at Grandfather next year.   It will be my fourth visit and the memories are all very
enjoyable.   Delighted to learn from Lois that the Gordons are making the running in the Clan stakes.   I will do my best
to support you in whatever way I can.

I know that my son, Alistair, has written to Lois to say that he will hope to move into the castle next year.   We are all
longing for this to happen not least because I can go and stay with him and drink his delicious whiskey.   He wants to
make some major alterations to the castle and, at this time in Scotland, it is difficult to know whether the country will
wish to try again to break from the United Kingdom or whether it will be able to remain in the European Union - both of
which matter very much for a number of reasons.  These things do, however, require that one thinks very carefully
before taking on a large project and I think he is right to wait.  I know he will make the right decision in the end.

I don’t deny that living in the South of England I miss the hills of Aberdeenshire.  I have been undertaking an academic
study this year and have hardly managed to get back home.  I would love to have a little cottage on the estate at
Aboyne but this must wait.   Henley, where we now live, is lovely and last evening we went for a walk on the tow path.   
Very quiet with no river traffic and only the willows bending in the breeze - I don’t deny I would have preferred to be by
the Dee with the rushing water and distant mountains but both have their merits!

I went to the wedding of my cousin last week in Scotland.   Lots of Gordons everywhere.   The bride wonderfully
pretty   .We were in the foothills of Perthshire on a glorious day surrounded by miles of wild open country. Looking
around me I felt my strong Gordon blood more than ever.

Look after each other.

Until next year,

Huntly.
