This year, Ellen and I took a trip, roughly following the North Coast 500 route.
The West coast of Scotland is stunning. As a Glasgow cabbie observed, if it wasn't for the weather and the midges of the Scottish West Coast, Brits wouldn't bother leaving the UK for their holiday. I can't comment on the weather (which was beautiful), but he may have a point about the midges.
Here are some photos from that trip.
Thistles at sunrise. Taken at around 5.30am. Worth getting up for?
This image is part of a much larger panorama that I would like to print for my wall in three parts.
The iconic Highland Cow, or Highland Coo as we call them in Scotland.
