Below are some photos of places close to the area where we live, Crieff. This post was inspired by David Cranmer, (A blog well worth a browse.) as he’s been posting some travel photos of late and he said he’d be interested in seeing some shots of this area. It was also inspired by some of the comments on my last post, Always, for Cormac Browns Friday Flash Fiction. The photo on that post was taken in a place called Fearnan on the north side of Loch Tay and I’m lucky enough to be working there at the moment.
I hope you like the following shots. And, yes, they are all taken by myself so nobody can do me for copyright etc.
Balquhidder Church – The burial site of Robert MacGregor. The grave directly in front of the church remains is Rob Roy’s resting place.
Robert MacGregor’s burial site, where his wife Mary and his sons Coll and Robin are also buried.
The gardens of Drummond Castle. The castle and gardens were featured in the movie Rob Roy, starring Liam Neeson.
A view up Loch Earn, which is around ten miles from where we live. I was working in this area last year for about 3 week. I got plenty of words written in my lunch break sat in the sun.
My three year old daughter, Melissa, thinks Cinderella and her friends Snow White, Belle, Sleeping Beauty etc live here.
I don’t know why, but I just love this photo!
The Sma’ Glen, is not so small and this old church and burial site is in a little area called Amulree.
An evening sky on the small loch a mile or so from our home.
“Have you seen my bra?”
Just outside the next village, Comrie, (Where actor Gerard Butler’s mum lives – aparently) there’s a wildlife park ‘Auchingarrich’ and this is one of their numerous Prairie Dogs.
I hope you like the above photos and maybe one or two of them inspire you. I will post some more over the next week. Thanks for looking.
You know the drill, leave a comment if you want…as always they are much appreciated. Later.
