Druim Glas, Ariundle and Falls of Dochart

1) Yesterday a group of us went for a walk beginning at the Ariundle Nature Reserve. We walked through the beautiful oakwood forest, then out past the Strontian lead mines, and up Druim Glas which, at only 435m is only a mere bump by normal Scottish standards, but still constituted a nearly six hour round trip. The views from the top were fantastic, and Aidan and Megan were wonderful – they barely grumbled at all during the entire walk. We’re really proud of them!

2) A (very) welcome afternoon tea at the Aruindle Nature Reserve tea room – lovely service, and yummy food – would definitely recommend it if you ever happen to be in the area!

3) We drove home today, thoroughly tired out, but we still managed a short walk this morning up to a waterfall near Corran, and then stopped to have lunch at the Falls of Dochart (which had considerably less water this time than the last time we were there). A perfect end to a wonderful holiday.

NB Sorry there are no pics up yet – minor technical problems just now, but I’ll get some up soon!

This blog has served different purposes over the years - it started out following a Three Beautiful Things (3BT) structure: and I used to record three things, often the ordinary moments in life, which made me smile that smile. Then, I joined a community of knitters sharing my progress on what I was knitting that week. Now, after a long hiatus, I'm back to share an unusual new knitting project...
