Hi Ann

If you walk along the River Ericht near Blairgowrie, you will come to
Cargill's Leap.

Coincidentally, Linda Gaul taught this dance at the Cheltenham day school
last Saturday, and mentioned that some "improvements" had been carried out
at the Leap to discourage foolhardy or intentional jumpers.

Whether Covenanting Cargill ever actually leapt the rapids, I know not. It
may well be one of those legendary feats of local folklore. However, we do
know that the scottish canoeists are currently reporting that a tree is
lodged at the last bend on Cargill's Leap on the Ericht. The recommendation
is: Get out and inspect and portage if necessary.

With such an experienced teacher as Linda I'm happy to report that this was
not necessary during our execution of the dance.
