Somewhere on the Forth Estuary... It's amazing how different a view can be obtained by getting down close to the ground! A star filter adds effect.

Falkland Falkland
Falkland, Fife. Situated at the foot of the Lomond Hills in Fife, the centre of Falkland remains a network of narrow streets of cottages and old stone houses. Falkland Palace, on the edge of the village, was used by the kings of Scotland as a base for hunting. Have a look at http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/falkland/falkland/.

Poppy Field Poppy Field
Somewhere in West Lothian... Summer meadows are in a class of their own. This one was just full of poppies and inevitably had that feeling of wild abundance so absent in formal gardens.

West Coast Poppies West Coast Poppies
Gairloch, Wester Ross. The west coast of Scotland is often grey, but that can add to the atmosphere and moodiness. These early July poppies looked out over the sea to Skye in the background. For accomodation at Gairloch the Old Inn really works: www.theoldinn.net. Their website even has the sound of the sea breaking on the shore...

Loch an Eilein Snow Loch an Eilein Snow
Loch an Eilein, Aviemore, Inverness-shire. This loch nestles up against the Cairngorm foothills, and is mostly surrounded by Scots Pines. There is a lovely walk of about 3 miles round the loch, which has a ruined castle on an island in the middle, recalling much less peaceful times. The loch is part of the incomporable Rothiemurchus Estate: www.rothiemurchus.net

Ben Lomond Ben Lomond
Stirlingshire. Situated as it is on the edge of the southern Highlands, Ben Lomond is visible from a good distance from a number of directions. This view, taken from the A811 not far west of Stirling just after sunset, reminded me a bit of those pictures one sees of Kilimanjaro rising above the plains, with elephants wandering around the acacia trees.

Rothiemurchus Forest Rothiemurchus Forest
Speyside. At one time much of Scotland was covered by native a Scots Pine forest, known as the Caledonian Forest, but most has now been lost. Rothiemurchus is thus one of the largest surviving areas of ancient woodland in Europe, with some trees over 300 years old, and has over 30 miles (50 km) of paths through the woods. It’s an iconic place, and the owners are keen to maintain it that way, so its future is bright. Have a look at www.rothiemurchus.net

Strathtay near Ballinluig Strathtay near Ballinluig
Perthshire. I’m often amazed by how different things look when one gets off the main roads, and here is a case in point. Maybe a mile from the A9 trunk road, a ‘B’ road with loads more character winds down the other side of the River Tay, so these pastel shades could be properly savoured at a more sedate pace.

Talkin Tarn Talkin Tarn
Cumbria. These pretty beech woods are adjacent to the attractive Talkin Tarn, just south of Brampton. There's a good 2km/1.3 mile wheelchair friendly path round the tarn, as well as lots of water based activities. Then when you've had enough, there's a tearoom with a welcome log fire, and a shop which sells a good variety of locally produced items.

Dunkeld Bridge Dunkeld Bridge
Dunkeld, Perthshire. Sitting on the Highland Boundary Fault, the setting of Dunkeld is very pretty and often atmospheric. This elegant arch bridge provides a fitting entrance to the village. Find out more at http://www.dunkeldandbirnam.org.uk/

Dalmarnock Bluebells Dalmarnock Bluebells
Perthshire. Just north of Dunkeld on the Dalguise road, wide stretches of hillside are carpeted in bluebells in late spring. Here the beech trees add dappled light.

Hugh Miller's Cottage Hugh Miller's Cottage
Cromarty, Easter Ross. One of numerous well-preserved 18th and early 19th century buildings in this gem of a historical village. These days you can also go dolphin spotting (we saw dozens and dozens) with Ecoventures (www.ecoventures.co.uk), then eat next door at the unique Sutor Creek Cafe (www.sutorcreek.co.uk), and finally walk a couple of blocks back to the friendly and stylish Sydney House Bed and Breakfast (www.sydneyhouse.co.uk). Totally worth a visit!
