Walking on the Estate

No, they're too heavy, we can't carry those...
nor these
We sometimes do this walk in the afternoon. It's flat, which is helpful if you haven't got hours to spare and are not feeling hugely energetic. At one end of the loch is a ruin of a house. It belongs to the Inverbroom Estate.We can see lots of tree saplings have been planted and it's been fenced in to keep out the deer. What a house! And what a spot to live in. A view from every window. It comes complete with boat house and boat, but it does need a bit of work doing - and those dreadful gates would have to go - and as for that gatekeeper!
Thank you for the nice comments on my last post concerning our house. So far it has stood up very well to the weather! I don't like to say but we have had lower than average rainfall here for the time of year. We do get storm force gales at times. Last year our weather station recorded gusts of over 100 mph. I really do feel for the people who have been flooded out in the south. I try and imagine how awful it must feel to have filthy water invade your home.

My favourite photo is the boat and boathouse, and as always the scenery is stunning. It is so good to get out for a walk when the sky is blue.

Another beautiful sequence of photos. I especially like the second one, where the mountains sweep down towards the water. What a place for a walk!

The house is definitely a "fixer-upper." That is such a deep blue in your skies and water. Great views inside and out.

What a lovely walk. Do you know anything more about the house? Always so sad and mysterious, house that just fall apart like that; someone must have loved it once.....
