GLIMPSES OF GRANDEUR
Going down the stairs from reception, glance upwards to two large stained-glass windows, which depict ‘Jessie the Flow’r o’ Dunblane’. Our beautiful countryside setting inspired this Scottish love song by Robert Tannahill.
Jessie the Flow’r o’ Dunblane
‘The sun has gane down o'er the lofty Ben Lomond,
And left the red clouds to preside o'er the scene;
While lanely I stray in the calm simmer gloamin',
To muse on sweet Jessie, the flow'r o' Dunblane.
How sweet is the brier wi' its saft fauldin' blossom,
And sweet is the birk wi' its mantle o' green;
Yet sweeter and fairer, and dear to this bosom,
Is lovely young Jessie, the flow'r o' Dunblane.
She's modest as onie and blythe as she's bonnie,
For guileless simplicity marks her its ain;
And far be the villain divested o' feeling,
Wha'd blight in its bloom the sweet flow'r o' Dunblane.
