    These are from a week's trip to Scotland in July last year - only just got around to sorting and loading them onto my website and thought some of you guys may like to have a look. There are too many to post in a thread so here's the link. Hope you like :smile:

    My wife is always trying to get me to Scotland, but your photos gave such a great sense of place and were so very much enjoyed…..that it might save me $$$ :wink:

    Wonderful set. Scotland is an awesome place and a great place to take your camera. Just gotta remember to take a wide angle for all that scenery!!

    Thanks so much, Dewi - what a wonderful trip! Love the scenes...the landscapes. It was so kind of Josie and Danny to bring along their humans and not leave them stuck at home.:biggrin: That competition shot is great.:wink:

    Very nice pictures. I'm lucky enough to live less than an hour's drive from the Edradour distillery and I can testify from personal experience to the quality of their product!

    I thought you may like to see a bit of Scotland, BB - I posted that with you in mind :smile:

    Dave, you're a lucky man living in such a lovely area. One of my favourite drives out of Pitlochry is along the Tummel valley road to Rannoch Station. Long time since we've been along there - one road in, one road out as I recall. One of the first long walks we did with our lad Ben was the 12 mile Kilikrankie when he was about 9 - he loved it but it's frightening to realise that was 20 years ago!. I was staying in Pitlochry at the Dundanich (sp?) Hotel last May when there was a big MX5 rally on there. Quirky hotel but great fun.

    Thank you for posting these wonderful images, Dewi.

    As a Scotsman who's lived in the colonies most of his life, they reminded me just how much beauty is contained within the borders of such a small country.....and that I need to return for a visit soon.

    some of those shots absolutely make my heart ache. Just beautiful!

    They say that, after three single malts, you can hear the pipers . . . whether they are playing or not!

    Cheers, Jock
