Jewels of Scotland







Top Picture Ben Lawers - the view from my garden - how lucky am I.
Second picture - frost in our sheep field . . .



Frosty, misty start this morning . . . .and now we have clear blue skys and warm sun.

Scotland gets a very bad press when it comes to the weather - apparently it rains here all the time

There is a saying - if you can see Ben Lawers then it is GOING to rain, but if you can't see Ben lawers then it IS raining.

We do get some extremes of weather up here - but good as well as spectacular.

Thank you for sharing those pictures WW. They are beautiful. Scotland, next to Northumberland of course, is one of the most beautiful places on the planet - in my view. I can't wait to visit again this month.

Oh so beautiful Westerwitch, you are so lucky to be living there, fabulous view from your window. Even if weather is extreme in Scotland I think it would be quite breathtaking. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Wow, Westerwitch - how can you bear to go away on holiday with all that on your doorstep?

Have a wonderful time, and we'll try and make sure the school is still standing for when you return.
