Saturday's postcard: Lucky black cat from Callander

Today's postcard comes from J.B. White Ltd., the same company that produced the previously featured "Cows and ruins go together nicely" postcard.

This one features a black cat1 in the center and touts the attractions of Callander, a burgh in Scotland.

The four sites shown are (clockwise from upper right):

1. Folklore on black cats varies across cultures. The Scottish, in today's case, believe that a strange black cat's arrival to the home signifies prosperity. We sure hope that's true in our household, as we're the owners of three fully black cats and one mostly black cat. And they're certainly all "strange."
2. Lubnaig is a Gaelic word that means crooked.
3. Here's some information on a walking tour of the Pass of Leny. According to Wikipedia, other walks in the area include Bracklinn Falls, The Meadows, Callander Crags and the Wood Walks.
