Here are some pictures that I took today in the area around Pitlochry - it's beautiful. This is the river Tummel that runs through the town and like most rivers in the Highlands you will regularly see silly men standing in the water up to their waists trying to catch the fish.
These two pictures, above and below, were taken in roughly the same spot - we were standing on a dam wall.
The dam makes it difficult for the salmon to get up stream when it comes time for them to return for the breeding season, so alongside the river and the dam is a fish ladder for the salmon to use.
Beautiful spring daffodils. Spring is probably my favourite season as there are so many lovely flowers coming out and it's the promise of the warmth of summer just around the corner.
We loved this display of heather in the local park - not long now until the heather will be blanketing the hills throughout the highlands.
Another gift to us in spring by mother nature is lambs - so cute!! I love watching them dance around the field and have mock battles with each other.
These three collies were sitting very patiently whilst their master was chatting to another farmer.
Until next time, be good, stay safe, and get out and enjoy a bit of your local nature.
