Back in Scotland


Sunday 25 January, 2015 by Uncle Spike

Once more I delve into the photo box in search of more Scottish scenes, and I think I struck lucky. Of course, most of my scenes tend to involve mountains or lochs, so apologies for anyone wanting urban scenes – you should know me by now. Little did I know all those years ago that I’d end up with similar scenery on my doorstep, albeit some 5,000 km south of the Scottish border, and a wee bit warmer!

There are some vibrant cities in Scotland, but I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about them; apart from Edinburgh, where I visited for work a number of times. My idea of a bit of R&R always involves the countryside, hence pretty much all my photos are mountain or forest views, or lochs of course.

Watch this space though – hopefully we’ll have an insider’s view soon enough of life in Scotland through the pen of a guest blogger in the pipeline 🙂

When I was first widowed, I spent a week driving right around much of the coast of mainland Scotland – a place where it seemed so natural to want to be in order to reconcile emotions and to try to make sense of the world. Scotland has this very human quality about it I have always found.

Sparsely populated outside of the principle urbanised areas, there is an endless supply of photographic scenery just there for capturing. These posts bring back fond memories – and I’m so pleased they are well received by you guys too 🙂

    I love Scotland thanks for sharing your photographs they made me climb the cupboard and pull out my album of my travels to this beautiful part of the world.

    Lovely pictures – where were they taken? In fact I am struck (living in rural France) when I go home a couple of times of year to Perthshire by how heavily populated it is now – the roads are so busy in comparison to our roads in France – we once even met a Ferrari when we were winding across the hill road from Glen Lyon right at the foot of Ben Lawers. It was snowing – we always wondered if he/she had got stuck…

    You have captured some of our lovely scenery here. Your fifth photo in particular looks a stunning place – you must have been paddling for that shot?


...waiting to hear from you...
