THE QUEEN IN THE HIGHLANDS. Before the Queen left Balmoral for Wisdsor, her Majesty paid a visit to the Highlands of Mar.

The Royal cortege drove from the Royal palace vi& Invercauld-honse and Allan- mond, to the superb and charmingly beautiful falls of the Quoioh. Here, at the nicely-ornamented ^^d finely-situated summer-house built by the Earl of Fife, a pic-nio was held by the Royal sojourners, after which from twenty minutes to half-an-hour was spent in viewing the sublime and picturesque scenery and grounds adjoining the Falls. Her Majesty after. wards drove to the famed Linn of Dg0> returning through the villages of Invereys ma New Mar Lodge and Braemar, to Balmoral in the evening. Both in going and returning the Royal party changed horses at the Invercauld Arms Hotel.
