Alladale

D is back from his camping trip in Sutherland (northern Highlands of Scotland).  He and the kids had such an amazing time I just had to share some of their photos with you.

  1. Gorgeous! Sigh. One day I hope to be able to finally go hiking in Scotland – haven’t found the right company yet though – but I’ll definitely skip the camping part and take day tour hikes…:)

  2. That tent shot is amazing.

    Makes me want to pop on a plane immediatley.

    Except for the snake. He’s cute, but I’d rather not sleep anywhere near him…

  3. looks amazing and cold – i would love to take the baby hairy coo home – am curious about what they were cooking – and the big question is – did they get absolutely soaked while you sat indoors and ate icecream?

  4. Wendy what beautiful photos and memories for them all!!! I just love Highland cattle and the baby photo is gorgeous!!!! Didn’t care for the snake though. 🙂

  5. Silvia – They did indeed. 🙂

    Pia – Let us know next time you’re in Scotland and we’ll take you on a hike.

    Nora – Hello stranger! Great to see you back.

    Lucy – The tent shot was my favourite too. Not keen on snakes but very impressed they saw one. Adders are very shy.

    Johanna – They were making apple crumble. Stewed apples and crushed ginger nut biscuits. And the night I ate the ice-cream was a difficult one for them. They’d been planting trees in the rain all afternoon and had to make dinner in the wet before getting dry. 😦

    Pat – Highland cows are great, aren’t they?

    Jules – They really are. Feel so lucky to live here.

    Leslie – 🙂

  6. Stunning photos – can’t decide which I like best. The view from the tent, possibly. And the stags are wonderful.
    I have to confess that I’m not the best of campers – I hate the fact that if you get wet, it is so very difficult to get dry again!

  7. Wonderful photos! I found your blog through my google reader, and my DH’s family is originally from Scotland and where your family was camping looks like some areas we hiked through. I love your blog!
