Evening at Loch Tay
Ally picked me up from work and we hit the road in Claudette.
I took him a new route over the moors to Loch Tay. We saw Red Kite, Black grouse and lovely grey skies........well, it looked beautiful. The backlit Crannog was a bonus.
The weather forecast wasn't looking promising, but our glass was half full and we headed onwards to Killin. Dinner was from the Smiddy and very tasty pizza it was too. The sneaky wee coffee I had while waiting for Ally to collect me was very good too. (Sorry Ally). We sat and feasted in Claudette then hit the trail to find a pitch for the night. Unfortunately others had the same idea and managed to snaffle to best areas up Glenlochay, but we managed to find a quiet spot near the river just below the Hydro station. A walk in the dark tested our eyes and all of our senses, but woke us up to the sounds of the glen. The lack of lambs bleating shows that it is still early spring here in the highlands.
Utter peace and darkness stilled the stress and memories of the past few weeks into oblivion and I managed to relax and chill with Ally.
The large red might have helped too.
