One for the Road —

Not that we hear that couthie phrase much nowadays – since drinking and driving has become one of the deadliest of sins —

This was the road home from Kenmore yesterday —

All that’s missing is Santa and his reindeer —

Fun and sun —

All the way down the road —

through the Sma Glen —

and home — 😎

Walking the dog —

Found a ‘new to us’ wood to walk today. It’s next to the railway between Blackford and Gleneagles.

Of course I should know it as I started work around here as a farm boy a long time ago —

We didn’t know any better back then and fed the stirks neeps all winter to fatten them — nowadays the only safe ‘green’ coos are these metal ones in Crieff —

A Few More on the Road to Kenmore —

Looking down Loch Earn from St Fillan’s —

doesn’t feel so cold when you have a hot cappoccina from the village shop warming your mit’s —

Glen Ogle viaduct looking stark against the snow – I remember passing this way aboard a steam train seventy years ago as a ten years old Boy Scout on my way from Kelso to camp on the Island of Kerrera off Oban —

The train was at walking pace by the time it went over the top —

Does it need a Caption?

No more than this shot does over Killin —

or this one of the Trusty Yeti near Ben Lawers —

The sheep must have been in-by all night to have cleared the snow off that roadside hillock —

I do like this shot – looking down Loch Tay towards Kenmore —

or back west to Killin and beyond —

A bit of sunshine always helps —

For some strange reason the roads were completely clear in places as we approached Kenmore —

But not for long —

and the log fire in the Kenmore Hotel was a welcome background to our second coffee of the day —

Thanks to Helen – our happy snapper for t hihe pics —

while yours truly is already heading off sumwherelse — 😎
