  1. Hello, As a Mackenzie, I have been to the castle and met Lord Cromartie and want to know how I can help? I am a mutil talented artisan of many mediums and wonder how my skill set could apply? Please look at my website and let me know if there are projects I could assist with and who to contact. Thank you. Luceo non Uro, ~Duncan Mackenzie

      Duncan Mackenzie – I commend you back to Lord Cromartie again as the main man of Mackenzie. He knows what needs be done and I suspect he will put you to work!

      BTW – To Hell You Ride? Aye, from a former Ourayan now on the eastern side of the great San Juans – the biggest baddest mountains in North America. Interested in Rocky Mountain Scottish activities?
