This is where we recently spent a weeks holiday. If you like a fast pace of life this is not the type of holiday you would enjoy. But if you like total peace and quiet, you would love it. The cottage has no electricity. It is heated and lit by gas. No TV, no phone, no mobile signal. no other house for 2 miles.

Further up the hill and now showing the little barn where the baby owls live, and the sheep pen.

How's this for a view to look out onto from your window?

On this shot taken from the garden you can see the road up to the cottage

One of the visitors that were curious about us.

A herd of deer came by every day, often they jumped the fence and came into the garden. This one I captured at about 10 pm one evening. I'm afraid the flash has caught his eyes and I don't know how to fix it.

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.

There is about an acre of garden with lovely views.

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.
