Beautiful Photos - Beautiful Scotland..

As some of you may know my parents are mad hillwalkers !! Every year they do the Great Outdoors - Ultimate Challenge and walk across Scotland. I was looking through some of their photos and thought I would share them with you. I couldn't believe they were taken here in Scotland.

This first one was taken at Portmahomack in Tain up north.

These last ones were taken at Loch Clunie on the road to Skye - These blew me away - they look so haunting...

I forget how beautiful Scotland really is sometimes..

This last one I got made into a stretch canvas and am going to give it to my mum for Mother's Day. The company who did it made a fantastic job and you can find out all the details HERE.

These are absolutely gorgeous! I've got myself in a bit of a pickle as I've just joined Facebook, and it has held me hostage by the laptop trying to make head nor tail of it. Your pictures have reminded me that the sun is shining and it is a beautiful Sunday so I am closing the lid on things now and will be back later to have another look at these pictures.

Enjoy your week-end, what there is left of it.

Simply beautiful Dawn! I would so love to come over there and see your beautiful country! Maybe one of these days.

The photos are beautiful, I love the first one. That's what I miss about Scotland is the beautiful scenery and going for a drive in the hills and around the lochs. Beautiful beaches & ocean here in Perth WA but can't compare to the beauty of Scotland! Jane x

I could have sworn I had left you a comment here... must've been having one of my senior moments..lol

Those photographs are simply stunning Dawn and it just goes to show we don't have to go far to see real beauty. I have had a few holidays in Scotland and never tire at the beautiful sights...even when driving into Scotland there are some fab things to see...you are so lucky living there :D

I'm sure your Mum will cherish the canvas...what a beautiful gift.
Thanks for sharing
