Betweem (for Between)

Betwixt and between. Begin the beguine. You take the high road and I'll take the low road. Celts have always been partial to peripatetic paradoxes. In addition to beautiful churches and castles. Weem (from the Scottish-Gaelic word uaimh, meaning "cave") is a village near the town of Aberfeldy in the county of Perthshire, Scotland. It claims a 16th-century castle where Bonnie Prince Charlie once slept on his way to the Battle of Culloden in 1746. It has a medieval church that houses funerary monuments of the Menzies family. Plus, there's a pub and hotel there. So if you ever find yourself between a rock and a hard place, you might want to stop for a bit to gather your wits in Weem. We got seven hits on Betweem (for between) in the OhioLINK database today.
