The Song of Renny (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Song of Renny Gunlaw was a white spike standing solitary in the Valley of Stones. Speir was a castle which followed exactly and occupied the whole Of its summit. Shale and shingle, the debris of a great river-bed, filled the valley; mountains and clouds shut the sun from it; mist hung over and drenched it day after day. At high noon, or for an hour before and after, the sun might look down on the bare bones the river had left, on grey hovels and on the white faces Of goitred peasants who crowded in them: but Speir bathed in his light the twelve hours through, SO that folk below thought it a battlement of heaven and looked to see the wings of angels tipping the walls.
