Galloway Dawn

The morning sun, still low on the eastern horizon, draped the land in a pale, clear light, with only a few wisps of fog remaining. ~ Grace in Thine Eyes

Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis in Inverness-shire is the highest mountain in the British Isles and claims some of the worst weather. Constant clouds, constant rain, constant wind, sometimes at gale force. ~ My Heart’s in the Lowlands

Ben Nevis

Cairn Holy

Older than King David of Scotland, older than King David of the Bible, the ancient ruin had lost many of its stones over the centuries. Beneath it were buried the remains of men lost to history, their bones long since turned to dust. ~ Thorn in My Heart

Cairn Holy

Loch View

What astounds the eye is the seemingly endless loch mirroring the bright sky. And the blue green hills, long and gently sloped, surrounding the water. ~ My Heart’s in the Lowlands

View from Eilean Donan Castle

November Scene

The distant hills are a dusky blue, the mist and the light conspiring to turn them into a mirage. ~ My Heart’s in the Lowlands

Cambuskenneth Abbey

Ancient Archway

The ruins of Dundrennan Abbey are ethereal, almost imaginary, as if the Gothic arches were hand painted on a canvas of blue green hills. Even the ironwork on the gates deserves the attention of our lenses. ~ My Heart’s in the Lowlands

Gateway to Dundrennan Abbey

Eilean Donan

The slate-colored sky hung low with clouds, and the air smelled of wet leaves and pungent peat smoke. ~ Fair Is the Rose

Eilean Donan

Durisdeer

The road stretches before us in one long, undulating line, drawn by a steady hand through hilly pastures. Except for a few birds on the wing, the countryside is utterly still, as if awed by the mountains, as we are. ~ My Heart’s in the Lowlands
