Highland sampler

Hold onto your shorts; we covered a lot of ground today, the weather included blue skies (!!!). Here’s a great sample from our day, and yet I am skipping many beautiful moments captured without the help of Kodak.

Glen Nevis

Glen Nevis.

Loch Nell

Loch Nell.

Montaine moors

Moors in the glaciated mountains…at least, I’m pretty sure this vegetation qualifies as moors.

Kilmartin Glen

Kilmartin Glen Neolithic ritual landscape…one of the rock cairns.

Standing stone cup marks

Kilmartin Glen standing stone with pecked “cup marks.” No idea what they were meant to convey.

Dun Add afar

Dunadd landform from afar. Dun means fort, usually always a fort atop a high-point.

Dun Add atop

View northish from the summit of Dunadd, from the part described as the great hall and citadel. The later occupation here maybe began in the late 500s and lasted into the 900s. This was the capital of the native Scoti peoples and their “empire” Dál Riata….

Now, back to the present….

Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond. We did not cruise it.

Logging Scotland

Active logging, Scottish style. The log piles show the neatest/tidiest stacking jobs I’ve ever seen. Still hurts to see trees whacked in their prime….

    I have vague memories of logs stacked like that along the road to Tahquamenon, probably when it was being improved.
