Heading to the North West for a day on the hill with two old pals!

Up early to make the best of some superb weather on the North West! I have two pals who live up North and will meet them for bacon rolls at 0900! (Well done )please Anne. They live out on the wilds with a view of Beinn Wyvis and the Stags will be roaring. What a place to  live in .

Yesterday was some local walking along the Moray Coast it was sparkling and an incredible day. I spent time watching the Birds “dive bombing”the fish in the Moray Firth an incredible scene ! The place is full of bird watchers and there is so much to see and with the fishing boats coming and going it’s a special place .

This is a bird spotters paradise with Oyster catchers, swirling Dunlins Oyster catchers, the

Haunting call of the Curlew, my old pals the Herons. There was the haunting call of the curlew ,  Cormorants spreading there wings to dry and the wild Diving Gannets


How many times have I seen this and yet never take it for granted. There must be loads of mackerel  about and my neighbour very kindly brought me in some already filleted and ready for the pan. The joys of living by the sea.it was great to see so many people out and about enjoying the sun and great weather.


A great weather forecast today again!

Later on in the day the football was on. I listened to it on the radio and poor Scotland another bad result V Lithuania 1  –  1 so sad but well done Lithuania!

Never mind as a Scot we are used to it.

Hopefully you will all be out and enjoying this magic spell?

If your near Roybridge pop into the Scottish Mountain Heritage exhibition two miles up  Glen Roy.

It is on till the 16 Oct and is worth a visit!
