I am writing to you this morning from our cabin in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. Mr. C and I have had a tremendous first week, racking up both miles and memories. The weather thus far has been outstanding with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. And with nearly seventeen hours of daylight, we have actually had to remind ourselves to go to bed at night! As always, Scotland feels like home. Well, my second home anyway.
Here is a wee peek at some of the things Mr. C and I have been up to this past week. I hope you enjoy and I look forward to sharing more with you when I return. 🙂
Greetings to you on this fine Tuesday. I hope your week got off to a great start. I am currently outside on my deck, bundled up in the November chill – a fleece to warm my body and a cup of tea to warm my soul. The autumn trees are lovely and I am happy.
Today I would like to take you up into the beautiful Scottish Highlands to a site located about four miles southwest of Aberfeldy, right off of A827. Our destination occupies a portion of a farmer’s field, actually, so you may want to grab your wellies in case it’s muddy. Ready? Great, then let’s be off!
If I were to ask you about stone circles (those mysterious, prehistoric, man-made rock formations commonly found across Northern Europe and Great Britain), I’d wager that the image that would come to your mind would be Stonehenge. It is one of Britain’s most iconic sites – and of course, the location of one of the Griswold Family’s hilarious misadventures.
Hello friends. What’s shakin’? Not much around here this weekend. I attempted to write this blog outside but good grief – the humidity! I see it’s a balmy 65 degrees in Edinburgh right now. What I wouldn’t give.
Today I’d like to show you a beautiful area in the Scottish Highlands that I visited on my last trip. Located on the River Dochart at the pretty village of Killin in Stirlingshire, are the spectacular Falls of Dochart.
Today I would like to give you a very brief snapshot of one of the prettiest sights my eyes have ever had the joy to behold. Loch Tay.
Situated in the historic county of Perthshire in the central Highlands of Scotland, sits beautiful Loch Tay, the largest loch (lake) in this district. Around fifteen miles long and 508 feet deep, it is also one of the deepest lochs in Scotland.
We were fortunate to see Loch Tay in March, before the winter snow had completely melted.
