a scottish journey

It's been a long time since i've posted my last pictures here. So here are a few pictures. My journeys through scotland over the years. A wonderful place on earth and worth a lot of journeys.

It's a tour from Kingussie via Inverness, Beauly, Achnasheen and Plockton to Cromarty (my fav and perhaps my senior-residence )

Start in Kingussie...



with the Ruthven Barracks




arriving in Inverness



people like Inverness or they hate it



i like it



at day and night



but for the moment i have to say farewell with a last view over the town



going to Loch Ness, but on the "wrong side" - the woods around Foyers



and the Great Glen (sorry, only a small part of it)




it's a short way to Beauly



and then - a highlight? no, the pure Highlands - Achnasheen



and later on arriving in Plockton



with a castle overlooking Loch Carron



at the end back to the east coast reaching Cromarty



with a lighthouse in the middle of the town and a pub beside - i want to be the lighthouse keeper there



it seems to me that time stands still



and my thoughts are going far away



and at the end still being here in Cromarty



i hope you enjoy the pictures.

Re: a scottish journey

Lots of images to mention but my favourite is No 2 but would clone out the orange sheep feeding pens, great light on castle overlooking Loch Carron but would crop a lot off the bottom

Re: a scottish journey

Those take me back to 1969 when we holidayed in the Highlands, based in Inverness. I still have a vivid memory of a huge Scotsman in full highland dress coming round a street corner in front of me, 11 o'clock in the morning, singing (I guess he'd call it that!) at the top of his voice, and drunk as a lord. Very nice city, was Inverness in those days, pre-oil boom.

Lovely.

Re: a scottish journey

Some great shots of places I know well. I too like 'sleepy' Cromarty a lot and was there at the beginning of May, thanks for posting Michael

It's little wonder that they want to keep it all to themselves! Lovely set.

Re: a scottish journey

Now it's all the "Yellow Party", in #4 shouldn't those shops be WH McSmith and Dorothy MacPerkins...? And the sign in the window of Cromarty Post Office: first step towards Scotland adopting the Euro? Even when I was there 40-odd years ago, there were Gaelic messages painted on walls etc in the Highlands (esp W Highlands) and slogans like "English Out". Plus ca change, eh?

Great shot of the bridge and hills in #7 but they are all fine images.

Re: a scottish journey

Great reminders of places that we love to visit — even when it rains and in the the midge season! Return soon and post more.
