Hidden Places


This was a lovely walk I did with Mary. The Inverbroom Estate near to where we live has opened up a track down to a tucked away hidden gorge. It was such a find. I've lived here for almost 8 years and had no idea of its existence! Full of wild life and flowers, overhanging rocks, ferns and orchids dragonflies and bees.. At the end of the track is a bridge. We weren't sure whether it was finished or a work in progress! We took a chance and stepped on it....it's a long way down, but what a view. I've shown an arrow indicating where the bridge is in the photo taken from the other side of the gorge. On the way home we walked through one of the farms on the estate. The ewes had been to the hairdressers and were looking very trim if a little forlorn after their short back and sides. The sheep dogs kept them in order until it was time to return them to their lambs waiting in the nearby field. The sun came out in the late afternoon and the wild flowers enjoyed the sun. Thank you Mary it was a lovely day and a lovely walk.

What a find! And beautifully presented in your photographs, too, Annie - especially the insects.

Lovely photos from a beautiful place.
Some of it reminds me of the north western coast of Norway where we have our cabin.

BrittArnhild, I've followed your blog for a long time! There are many similarities between Norway and the North West Scottish Highlands, except of course Norway is much bigger and has higher mountains!

Always great to find a new place to walk. Bridges over high places would not do for me, too afraid of heights.

A great of photos and very tempting. Would like to book some time in Scotland now. Just to be somewhere where there are very few people.

Katherine, it's certainly peaceful here. I can't recommend the Northwest Highlands enough, it's very beautiful and empty..!

So very beautiful. I can just hear the waterfall, and feel the breeze. (And now my neck is starting to itch with imaginary midges...?) Those sheep got a good clipping indeed!

Christine, so far so good. The midges have behaved themselves!
