So I knew I was in Laurieston Forest when I saw the sign by the roadside but the rest will remain nameless because I’ve lost my Ordnance Survey map for that bit of Scotland.
No worries – I parked up here —
and wandered off up this snow covered track through the forest —
I reckoned I was heading in the general direction of north so that must be the Merrick or some of it’s cohorts covered with snow in the distance —
But I wasn’t going anywhere near them this afternoon – instead I settled for a view over this wee loch —
and found a spot for my lunch. It’s a case of ‘any tree stump will do’ and I was spoiled for choice.
Will it be this one —
Nah! Too cold and dark – how about here —
I’m not too sure of that stump tho’ – she looks as if she’s on the run —
With an all-round view I wasn’t too bothered. This was west-ish —
and round a bit more —
With lunch over – this could be the way home —
I was ambushed by some hungry sheep on the way. I think they are a mixture of rare breeds.
Possibly from the islands of Shetland and Soay —
plus some from south of the border —
But they were friendly enough and didn’t exactly look famished. Just as well because I seldom leave a crumb in my piece box 🙂
