In Very Few Words

Kelpies, Helix Park

     Storytelling is something to laud and we know that a story can be told in very few words, if the words are chosen carefully.

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park

   With the view to attract more Chinese visitors to our country, the UK tourist board is telling the story of some of our famous Scottish landmarks in Mandarin  and I thought I would share a few of the translations with you. 


    Kai Poju ma: 
    Glorious armoured giant horses - Kelpies.

    Shan Hu Huai Bao Zui meng Xiang:
    Mountains, lakes get you drunk on dreams - Loch
    Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.


    Monument to Brave Heart - The Wallace Monument.

    Strong-man skirt party - Highland Games.

    Haggis - Baa - baa pudding.

    Yes, the words do say it all.
