RETURN TO BALINOE

Last October Greg and I spent a week in this lovely cottage in the Black Isle. We were there again a couple of weeks ago so I thought you would like to see this lovely place in the spring.
Bryan and Jarvis were delighted as you can see.
Click on pictures for a better view
There is about an acre of garden with lovely views.


Ben Wyvis seen from the garden with it's summit in the clouds

I love all the different greens at this time of year


And finally how's this for a sunset?
Unfortunately I can't share with you any shots of the trips we made because, silly me, forgot to take the battery charger for my camera and the battery went flat. However you can visit my october blog if you wish.

Oh, what a lovely place to visit and stay. The sweeping landscapes are magnificent! Sorry you forgot your battery charger...we've all done that. Now you and Greg will just have to make another trip to show us the other travels.

The sunset is breathtaking. Happy to see Bryan and Jarvis again. Give them some attention from me. =)

So beautiful! How lovely to have an acre of ground to run around in (the dogs, that is, though I suppose you and Greg could, too ;-})
The sunset is stunning.

Beautiful pictures, Chris... Love the sunset....AND---everything looks so green and fresh...

Sorry about your camera battery... Our batteries and charger stay in the camera bag --so they always go with us... Bet you won't forget it the next time!!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Your sunset photo is incredible. The sky, mountains and color are absolutely beautiful. I'm glad you got to go back to this wonderful area even if you couldn't take as many pictures as you would have liked. Maybe next year.

Absolutely stunning, Chris. Ben Wyvis is always impressive, and that last shot is so beautiful.
