Scotland the brave – this green and pleasant land!

7th January 2017

I can’t explain why – but for some reason these words just seemed to keep ringing in my head as I drove towards Creag Meagaidh this morning!

    Do not despair. Winter starts this coming Thursday.
    Build up the wood pile and bring the cattle indoors !
    Wish I was there.
    I wonder if the group on the loch are the members of a winter skills course who have no suitable snow to play in.

      ……well the canoes indoors at any rate!

      If only for the fact all are likely to end up in a guddle at the top end of Loch Laggan, this next spell!

      At which point the occupants might get the opportunity to practice some missing winter skills – standing up in a gale!

      Stormy conditions on the horizon for sure.

      Enjoy your viewing Stan – if only from a distance…

      Thanks for your encouragement!
