We had a beautiful weekend in Scotland, no surprise there. Just one problem; it went too quickly. Having stayed at the Hilton Dunkeld before we knew what to expect, and to be honest, I was a little nervous with Amy, she isn't known for her tact or a quietly spoken voice. But I had no need to be. She behaved like an angel; impeccable manners throughout, making us laugh, chatting to the staff. It was one of those "let's give it a try" decisions when I first booked the weekend away, and boy, am I glad we did. She had everyone in giggles just 5 minutes after checking in when she spied a bowl of apples and asked rather loudly, "are these apples free?" I looked around at the sea of faces near us, fortunately with an appreciative expression as the receptionist told her to go ahead and choose one. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped with a huge television; a home from home. As I had booked dinner, bed & breakfast, we were able to enjoy a first class meal each night. Amy and I went swimming in the hotel pool on Saturday and Sunday morning which we thoroughly enjoyed mainly because we had the pool to ourselves. The Farmer went fishing all day Saturday, my mum's birthday present to him. He didn't catch anything but had a wonderful day nonetheless.
I hope you like that photo, I nearly knocked myself out against a tree to take it, when on my way back up the steps from the shore I tripped over a large protruding tree root. The scenery is so beautiful, whenever we go we always find it difficult to leave. On the Sunday we went to Killin to visit some friends of ours. They made us lunch and we chatted the afternoon away, always a pleasure to see them.
This picture was taken on the banks of Loch Tay in the village of Kenmore. A delightful spot, and one I shouldn't be surprised is used by many photographers.
The next few photographs were taken by Amy.
Beautiful scenery along Loch Tay
