The Highlands in April, beauty without the bites ....

(viewed 1548 times)

Had a lovely break up in the highlands of Scotland, April is a great time to visit. We were very lucky with the weather, blue skies and sunshine and the scenery was just stunning ..... and NO MIDGES! .... I want to go back again this time next year and do some 'proper' walking .......

.... pic 2 reminds me of an Irish folk song, something about the last island swan (Christie Moore?) ... this lonely lad was the only bird on the loch and looked a little sad .....

MaggieD says:

Thanks Jane, and I am ashamed to say that I missed out on some stunning pics of mountain eagles because my camera was in the bottom of my rucksack :(

MaggieD says:

Thanks peeps, and I have to say I think I am getting better at getting my camera out of my bag .... I have always taken holiday shots and pics of the children when they were young and pics on my travels and work overseas before I joined Moblog (loads of pics of Cambodia, Vietnam, Burma, Thailand, China and India) .... I am just too lazy to do anything about those now ....

And you're right on the Christy Moore reference.

MaggieD says:

Thanks folks :)

..... and thanks Joker for giving me the title of the song, I have now listened to it on Youtube and it is spot on for the pic (getting sentimental in my old age)

SFG, stayed in a lovely hotel on a loch very close to Glencoe ... pics taken in and around that area .....

Fantastic shots, we\'ve had some good weather up here recently; April seems to be a good time for it! I\'m so not looking forward the the dreaded midges in a couple of months - they love me :(

Geodyne says:

Oh my goodness. These photos are so beautiful, they break the heart. :D

MaggieD says:

Thanks peeps, I know we were very very lucky with the weather (and lack of midges) ....
Rachel, they love me too! ... it is why I have been putting off a trip for so long .....

.... and yes, Billion, Yay for the Scottish Highlands in spring!

..... and Sheepy, get yourself out there in the fresh air, do some healthy hill walking and lose that EMO pallor .... the girlies will still love you with the weather beaten look ;)

I\'m sorry I missed these MaggieD, they are stunning. I just love the empty beaches - I was in Applecross exactly a year before you posted these pictures. A most excellent time to go.

The swan is my favourite - and the abstract stripes of the last one.
