Holiday in Scotland

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Scotland staying in Rothiemurchas on the way N and S and at Poolewe in the Western Highlands for 5 nights.

We had cool but mainly dry weather and excellent visibility.  The scenery was superb and we saw a wide range of interesting wildlife including Golden Eagle and Peregrine Falcon in Findhorn Valley, Common Dolphin and Common Seal in Gair Loch and White Tailed Sea Eagle, Red Breasted Merganser, Great Northern Diver and Otter in Loch Ewe.

Most of the wildlife refused to pose long enough for photographs apart from the dolphins which came so close that the telephoto lens was too long!

Chris did manage to have an otter feeding on crustaceans on the bank just in front of her (needless to say she didn't have a camera).

The bottom shot is the view from our campervan.
