Our town, Crieff, lies on the southern edge of the Scottish Highlands. Hills and mountains rise up dramatically behind the town, and can be glimpsed from our garden. It is a short walk up into the hills, where there are beautiful views. Here are some photos taken this winter (the castle is Castle Monzie):
A few miles down the road from Crieff, we visit the village of Comrie, which boasts impressive waterfalls and wild Highland scenery.
We also take our visitors deeper into the Highlands. We visit the pretty town of Aberfeldy (great cafes!) with its famous waterfalls walk – Birks’ Walk – immortalised in song by the great songwriter and poet, Robert Burns:
-Bonie lassie, will ye go,
Will ye go, will ye go,
Bonie lassie, will ye go
To the birks of Aberfeldy!
Here is the great Robert Burns himself, sitting next to one of our visitors as he admires the scenery.
And then on to the beautiful Loch Tay, where you may want to visit the Scottish Crannog Centre – a reconstructed prehistoric loch-dwelling. It’s also a good place for wild swimming.
