The archives are open between 9-1 and 2-5 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and while...

Started from the bottom now I’m …still here

Nestled near the southeast corner of the Cairngorms National Park and about an hour’s drive from Dundee you will find, what most would call, a gem. A massive, frosty, glistening, gem. They call it Glenshee Ski Centre …or as I would refer to it, That Place That Tested My Patience. When most people hear I am from Iowa, they usually imagine that flat state in the smack-dab center of the USA that’s known for its agriculture....
