We had visitors from London up this holiday weekend (Hello Priya!). Spent the weekend showing them around some of my favourite places in the area. It was so good to take time out and just enjoy our where we live – I haven’t done enough of that in the last few years. We sailed down the Caladonian Canal; visited Glen Affric and Plodda Falls; shopped at the Cromarty Pottery and ANTA; dolphin spotted at Chanonry Point; and went to The Storehouse for lunch. The sun was very cooperative; the dolphins and seals were not.
(Bigger versions of these photos can be viewed here – the Glen Affric photos – fifth and sixth – are well worth seeing in a larger size)
The larger photo of Glen Affric is breathtaking!
Isn’t it wonderful to be able to show off Scotland at it’s very best. My daughter and son in law are in Skye this weekend and I have been enjoying the wonderful photos of their trip. Nowhere more beautiful.
fab wendy-sure your visitors were blown away from the escape from the city
Beautiful! Where is the pirates’ graveyard? And I love the gorse shots! I was not surprised to see that shot of Glen Affric- when I visited last summer, I took a similar photo, and in fact, so have others apparently (see this post: http://www.taste-life-twice.com/2011/09/truth-in-advertising-installment-4.html). Thanks for the lovely views, Wendy!
I love how crisp each and every single one of these photographs looks. So much detail and perfect light.
Your pictures are gorgeous, and make me wish I had a trip to Scotland planned for this year. It looks like you got mostly good weather – an added bonus!
Simply breathtaking photos. How I miss Scotland 🙂
I would love to come to Scotland and have YOU as my tour guide!! It is definitely number 1 on my list of places to visit! Your pictures are indeed breathtaking!
