The Golfer Gets Excited…

IMG_4744… not because we have driven through a snowstorm, nor due to the imposing scenery or the presence of gorse in bloom on every verge and hillside meaning that kissing is very much in season, but because he has seen his first eagle of the trip. No gardens on the way for me though, more’s the pity, and even a potential forest walk was aborted due to the blizzard, but there will be a croft garden or two to visit later in the week – and perhaps the chance of some Stornoway black pudding…

    I was thinking of you when i saw the weather forecast, hope it doesn’t last long.

  2. Ah, so that’s where you are! It’s not a part of Scotland I’m familiar with. That must be so exciting spotting an eagle! It does look cold, but definitely stunning! Enjoy your kissing 😉 ! And your croft gardens and, of course, your black pudding!

    Wow – beautiful scenery. Sorry about the weather up here, though makes for pretty mountains.
    Great to see an eagle too. Hope you enjoy your trip.

  4. Your photos make me homesick (I’ve travelled too, but in the opposite direction). An eagle – amazing! Which type was it?

    Spotting an eagle is a magical experience.

  6. Ah, so this is what Scotland looks like in April?! I want to go so badly, but don’t know when. It is spectacular scenery though. Wonderful to see an Eagle, hope it was a Golden Eagle, the largest wingspan….

    Oh that scenery is just fabulous, I so envy you being up there.. Hope you packed your thermals.

  8. Brrr that looks very chilly. How amazing to see an eagle. Enjoy your trip.

  9. Scotland, beautiful in sunshine and blue skies, beautiful with it’s snow covered mountains and cloud, I couldn’t live anywhere else 🙂 well done on spotting an eagle.

    That’s the Outer Hebrides isn’ it? You have gone a long way north. Beautiful scenery and wonderful to spot an eagle but a snowstorm is a bit extreme. I hope you get some decent walking weather.

    Brrrrrrr! Mind you himself is adamant that it was snowing here briefly yesterday afternoon. Beautiful scenery, magnificent birds and hopefully some garden visiting at some point. What more could a girl want?

  12. What a stunning landscape! Spring snow is not that pleasant but it makes for a magical scene.
