Happy New Year 2019

MacLeods table and Loch Dunvegan

   We have made a bench for the top of the Roskhill lane. We will put it in place in April. We can see views of the MacLeods Tables and Loch Bracadale. If we look to the north in the winter we will see the northern lights.

We went for a wonderful walk today, along the side of  Loch Dunvegan. The sun was setting at 4.40pm. The sky was full of colours.

Heavy snowfall overnight, a total contrast from yesterday. Fantastic morning for taking photographs.

Winter Morning

The sun shines in an azure sky

lighting sparkles as the minutes pass by

Bright and crisp, clear and pure

A beautiful vision with great allure
