After a very tough, ridiculously busy few months at work, the Easter holidays have finally arrived. To say I’m happy would be the understatement of the year. It so good to have room in my head once again to take in the world. And to think about blogging too. I’ve been away from this space so long, it feels a little odd to be writing a post once again. Shall sort that out in the coming weeks by posting often.
Spent the first four days of the holiday on the west coast with friends. As if celebrating with us, the skies, which had been heavy and slate grey for weeks and weeks, broke out in brilliant blue for the whole weekend. A perfect backdrop to the fantastic time we had indulging in lots of good food and wine and then walking it all off on the hills and shores of Skye and Lochalsh.
Back home now and, really, I feel brand new.
your photos always make me feel like I am on a mini break – enjoy your holidays – sounds like they are much needed
That’s a lovely compliment, Johanna. xx
It’s absolutely stunning there Wendy – I can see why you feel so refreshed. Whereabouts did you go?
We stayed in Duisdale the first night then were up in Dunvegan the second followed by a night in Duirinish, just outside Plockton, on the third. It was wonderful.
Wendy, your beautiful photos have transported me back to my time spent on Skye this past summer. I can almost smell the salt air and feel the crisp coolness of the wind on my face. And the vistas of Skye…is there any place else on earth with such amazing views? Thanks so much for sharing the breathtaking beauty of this area. I can’t wait to go back!
It’s one of my favourite places. 🙂
I’ve just moved to Inverness (and found your blog) so I’m glad that you shared these beautiful photos of your weekend!
Welcome to the neighbourhood!
Beautiful beautiful photos…still looks bloody wintry though…
It was frickin’ freezing, Robin!
It’s good to have you back…
Looking forward to future posts
Beautiful pics of a place I’ve never been ..but must go. I’m not sure I’ve been so far north. ….looks stunning.
If I had traveled through that breath-taking scenery, I too would return home feeling brand new! Gorgeous photos!
Oh Yeah, you’re back! I’m so glad you’re on holiday enjoying yourself. Lovely, lovely photos. I swam in them, swam in the blue. I live across the pond from you in the same latitude, and we experience very similar weather, so I know how it is suddenly having a weekend of blue. We’re back into the typical gray April, but last weekend, we had sun as well. Wishing you more sun and blue skies!
Good to hear from you! And gorgeous photos, as ever!
As an Aussie who has never been to Scotland, I’m always thrilled by the beauty of your homeland! Wonderful photos, thank you.
My goodness, where you live always takes my breath away — I look at the pictures and seem to take a huge breath and then sigh — thanks for your pics and welcome back from a much deserved break, I’m sure.
There is no better combination than blue skies and the west coast! Your photos capture it beautifully.
Really, how can you stand to live in such a place surrounded by such stunningness?! Every photo looks like a postcard. Thanks for sharing the loveliness
Wow Stunning views so calming keep it up
Your photos are breath taking! So clear & clean. One of these days I am going to come see this for myself but in the meantime, thank you for sharing!
I have exactly that photo of Loch Carron taken in very similar weather in March 2012! great pics.
