The Highlands 2007

The Highlands 2007

Thrilling title, is it not?

I took 116 photos in 5 days.

You’ll be very grateful to hear that I’ve been selective in those I’ve uploaded to Flickr. I’m going to be even more selective in those I show directly on the blog. So if you’re on dial-up or limited download, you can lower your blood pressure rate now! ๐Ÿ™‚

All the photos are in one “Album” on this page on Flickr (click to see thumbnails of all of them – will open in a new window or tab) or go here for a Slideshow.

Anyway, on to the show.

I’ve created a Google map with little points of interest. Each days activity is colour-coded, but that doesn’t really matter. To see it in detail (complete with notes) go here (will open in a new window).

And finally, the best photo I got of a Highland Cow.

No, really. All the others were much worse.

I had a lovely time and I’ve already started the ball rolling on my next trip (to the Lake District – never been).
N.B.: I’ve finally finished my mum’s “birthday” socks, so there will be photos and whatnot in the next day or so.

  1. Great slide show. I am going to show it to my dad next time he comes over…I will get a big history lesson but it will be worth it.
    I like the lovely bronze (?) otter… and all the scenery. Not really near civilization were you!!??!! I take back previous comments!!!!!!
    What a charming travelling companion too…all you could wish for. He posed particualrly well.


  2. Welcome back!! (Your dreams were your ticket out…now I can’t get that song out of my head: ear worm!!!) I haven’t watched slide shows or looked at colour coded google maps!!!!!! yet, but I shall!! I love the lake shaped like Scotland!!!
