February 2022. Tay estuary walk at Newburgh.

We had a lovely walk through fields by the Tay at Newburgh on a beautiful blue sky day. It looked good enough to swim but was just above freezing!

Finally there was some snow in Scotland so on 5th January after consulting webcams and weather forecasts we set off to Glencoe. We found a little snow and saw a lovely sunset on the way home.

December 2021

We finally went to visit Drumderg wind farm which we see from the top of the hill in our local park in Perth. It was a day of glorious blue skies with the snow clad high peaks gleaming in the background. Nice to see cattle on the farm too.

A month of few sunny days, but when there was sun we got out and about to Loch Fascally, Cloan Glen, the Firth of Forth and Drumpellier Country Park.

September 2021

We had a glorious week in Glen Affric, home of the most complete Caledonian Pine forest in Scotland. The twelve mile walk round the loch was tiring but well worth the effort.

July 2021 Summer cloud

In July we had some cloud on the ground mornings and went for a forest walk around Binn Hill above the River Tay. Summer mists rather than autumn mists.

April 2021

April was a month of bright blue skies, clouds, showers and rainbows. Buds and blossoms bloomed. We particularly enjoyed walks by the River Tay as we could see through the bare tree branches to the river banks.
