  1. The UK has so much natural beauty – who needs to visit elsewhere? Not me, for one.

    • This is on the east coast and one of our favourite walks. You can understand why it’s impossible to get me off the island, even in winter.

  2. What a beautiful view. That water looks icy too.

    • It was a very cold day and even some of the sea lochs were frozen round the edge. Sub-zero temperature are very unusual here, but I’m not complaining as we’ve blue skies and sunshine.

  3. Oh this looks very beautiful, walking here must be so refreshing and invigorating.

    • There is nothing like a winter walk to envigorate the body and raise the spirits.

  4. Loving the weather, it’s our favourite place for a walk too. x

    • It’s such a relief to have some fine weather and to be able to get out and about. Look out for us at North Loch Eynort, instantly recognisable by the tons of camera gear and often to be found grovelling in the undergrowth looking for fungi, lichens or plants.

  5. It is such a stunning landscape…You are so fortunate to be able to enjoy this space.

    • Hi Charlie, the landscape never fails to delight me. I have photographed this area, so often, but each time it is different and I can’t resist reaching for the camera.

  6. A lovely photo, and interesting to see some trees/shrubs in the foreground. I’m guessing the viewpoint might be a little more sheltered from the prevailing winds?

    • Hello Julian. This is on the east coast and at the head of a big sea loch (more like a fjord) and is very sheltered. It is an area that has some relict woodland, but was also planted with native trees as a millennium initiative. It is a lovely walk and a big contrast to the scenery on the west where we live.
