A River in Norway

Beginner's troubles today! I thought that I had added all my Scottish Beaver Group's email addresses to the list of contacts for this blog, but must have failed to press the 'Save' button.

Now where, I wonder, is this landscape? Somewhere in Scotland? Guess again. It is in Norway. This is a view of the River Namsen at Overhalla. Contrary to the outpourings of the Tweed Foundation, here is a river that could well be in Scotland. Nor is it alone among the rivers of Norway that is similar to Scottish Rivers.

Andrew Douglas-Home, chairman of the Tweed Foundation wrote a letter to 'The Times' in which he declared that Latvia was the same size as Wales. Latvia is, in fact, roughly three times the size of Wales, as is Lithuania (with which Andrew D-H may be getting confused).
