Autumn in the air

Loch Leven

On our walk this morning we felt Autumn in the air, although the low cloud had burnt off by the time we got home and there was warmth in the sun again. We took our time and spent a while sitting on a rock at the edge of Loch Leven. We were awarded with sittings […]

Evening Walk

Sunset over Loch Leven

17th April 2019 We took an evening stroll and watched the sun set and the moon rise.  It was still mild and very pleasant.  It was lovely to watch the sun set over the hills in the distance.  

Lunch Time Walk

Inchree Waterfalls

17th April 2019 We took a pre-lunch walk to Glen Righ, near Onich. It is only 10 minute drive away by car and has a red squirrel spotting station although we didn’t see any on this trip and plenty of plants and lichens to see.  There were a group of people on the water fall, canyoning I think, […]

Oyster Catchers

10th March 2019 A few birds spotted on our recent walk around the village.

A few hours out in the sunshine

Yellow Azalea

New Player

Young Heron outside the Shinty Pavillion Ballachulish

On Wednesday we had a visitor to the Ballachulish Shinty Park, a young heron, I think he will have to sign up for the Under 14’s though.

Rowan Berries

Rowan tree berries

I’ve just noticed that the rowan trees are already showing their berries, I’m sure they are earlier than last year.  The rowan is supposed to ward of witches and other supernatural beings so I’m glad we’ve got a few dotted around the garden.
