Time Out

November 2019: We saw a lot of rain this month – which is surprising for the NE of Scotland as usually this side of the country tends to be significantly drier than the West. And with the rain comes the grey skies. Aberdeen, affectionately nicknamed ‘The Granite City’, is built of grey granite – beautiful on a bright day when the sun catches the mica, but day after day after week of overcast, leaden skies and grey buildings results in a sombre environment. Then the temperature dropped too …

So … I abandoned the NE for a few days out in the far NW:

There’s something very special about the light quality in the far NW:

Beinn Spionnaidh and Cranstackie
