More pics of Scotland

I suddenly realised that I never did post the second lot of pics from our break in Scotland back in October... I hope nobody's been holding their breath. ;-) Anyway, without further ado here're a few more pics of the glorious Scottish scenery.

We started this day by driving down a little road that runs the other side of Loch Ness from the A82. It goes down the loch for a couple of miles and then strikes inland, eventually arriving at Fort Augustus.

Firstly, Loch Ness in all its glory:

I believe this next one is Loch Duntelchaig (in the distance):

Sundry hills and mountains along the way:

Fort Augustus, which is at the other end of Loch Ness from Inverness, turned out to be a super little village. I could happily have a whole holiday staying there. All of these are from that area.

And lastly, this was the view out of our hotel bedroom window. It was just a simple Premier Inn, cheap but very nice, and only four or five miles up the road from Loch Ness.

And now of course, having looked at these again, I can't wait to go back to beautiful Scotland.

gorgeous Cath! I am glad you shared the photos! I think my favorite is the one with the fence..the clouds in that are fabulous and it feels like you can see forever...

These are gorgeous!! We'd love to go to Scotland at some point. Maybe in the next few years. My husband is an avid golfer and St. Andrews is on his list of "I gotta play it" places.

Lovely Cath! Come in May and we can meet up! How far are you from Scotland anyway?

Val said...

Lovely photos..so green and lovely skies! (I've never been to Scotland but have read lots of Walter Scott, RL Stevenson and John Buchan lol)

Cath said...

Pat: Yeah, that one does look like you can see for miles and miles... which I suppose was true. LOL!

Kay: Scotland is so beautiful. And everywhere you go, you see golf courses. Everywhere! LOL!

Peggy: Scotland is at the other end of the country to Devon so going up in May is not really on. A shame but I really hope you have a lovely time.

Val: Thanks, glad you enjoyed them.

Just been watching the first of a new doc series about Alaska. I thought of you. :-)

For a minute, I thought I was looking at pictures of The Catskills. Beautiful country.

Nikki: I can see why you might think that. I believe that millenia ago that part of Scotland was joined to the N. American continent so that could explain it.
