Rattrap to Rattray

Lena is WWOOFing of sorts on a pony farm in a town called Rattray in Scotland.

She received the postcard fairly soon, which surprised me for two reasons:

  • I can’t read my own handwriting annymore with absolute certainty. Had to look up the address again to decypher “Blairgowrie”;-)
  • IT exceeds Deutsche Post limitations.

Before you comment: I’ve read Wikipedia on Rattray, too. So:

The name Rattray is Raitear in Gaelic, and may derive from an English language cognate of Gaelic ràth meaning “fortress” plus a Pictishterm cognate with Welsh tref meaning “settlement”.
