Just at the end of our road, our first photo stop on The Kyle-of-Tongue causeway. A beautiful scene with the sun still low, lighting the snow on Ben Loyal.
Beautiful fresh frost on the winter grasses, we stopped here because Bruiser was squeaking so loudly at the Deer he watching through the window. He likes to get out of the car and sit and watch them for a bit. (yes very spoilt dog) .
This my idea of a perfect road. Small unobtrusive and empty. Definitely on of our favourites, and to tell the truth there are very few roads to choose from here in the Highlands, and most look like this.
Our first sightings of Snowdrops this year. these are in the grounds of Dunrobin Castle where we went by kind invitation to pick up a Yew branch, we are very excited to start work on this beautiful wood which has a rich auburn centre and stunning growth rings, I hope we do it justice.
A trip to Dunrobin would not be complete without taking in this beautiful little Station scene. (it is a request stop) The new season castle opening times begin on the 1st April. I would suggest allowing a full day as there is so much to see and here.
We drove home via the Loch Brora road, the sun lit our route and added some magical scenes on the water. This is an amazing capture by Steve, the photo is un-edited and created completely by nature.
The sun setting on the last stretch of the return home led tome great reds in our last photo’s of the day. With the Snow on Ben Klibreck completing the scene.
And to complete a wonderful 2017 birthday, A bedtime Aurora. Both Steve and I had an Aurora end to our birthdays this year.
