NG Scotland 2019
« on: May 10, 2019, 20:06:24 »
I safely arrived at Dave's place in Killin earlier today. There are practical issues to be sorted but hopefully the solution is found before we drive westwards towards Kintail tomorrow morning. For example, my comfortable walking shoes didn't go well with the cramped layout of my little rental car thus one unintentionally steps on the accelerator instead of the brake -- can lead to disaster :( Using my medium-heel pumps instead worked better but they were never designed for use in driving a car. Oh well. What is an existence without challenges?

The obvious image of stepping into Scotland would be this (depicting whisky barrels of course).

A couple more hills and is there a naked Scotsman hiding somewhere?

The scourge of the west: Rhododendron ponticum. It is actually a rather pretty 'weed' and deserves to be beautified. In a 'weedy' manner, of course.
