We have had spectacular weather for the last two days of our trip, we really couldn’t have asked for more! Thursday was spent exploring the Monadh Mor, a surviving relic from the end of the ice age! It is the largest remaining bog wood in Scotland. It was teaming with stunning wildlife and I was struck how parts of it reminded me of rural France and even California’s Yosemite valley.
Hitting the bog…
So many butterflys!
Deep dark forest…
Gus has to test out the bogs of course, little toothy warthog that he is!
Check out the size of the mushrooms!!
Molly in the Heather, my girl is so gorgeous xxx
Today we drove out to yet another tiny village and this one was my favorite of the whole trip. Perhaps because it was more familiar having spent a lot of time in its neighboring villages such as Bucky and Cullen. Findhorn boasted a most spectacular beach, the best by far we have visited on this trip. We met some very friendly locals and their pooches too. A lovely way to spend our last day.
Show us your best crazy faces!
Ok some nice poses now guys 🙂
Gus knows the score…’Strike a pose…’
Some of the friends we met…this is Whisky the Collie!
And a whole gaggle of Retrivers who’s owner just called them, ‘The Girls’. Gus wolf-whistling at them, ‘Hey hey gorgeous!’
Some of us together, you know to prove I was there too 😉
Quick half before home…
Bye-bye Findhorn , we will definitely visit again!
Back home at the lodge and we spend our evening packing up and soaking up the sunshine.
Its been a fantastic trip, we feel so relaxed we are practically horizontal! We have splurged on good scenery, food and drink. Thank goodness we have so much walking to do with all our best pals when we get back to the city! My mid-drift needs some strenuous exercise pronto!! Luckily I don’t think the pooches will have any objections to some hill walking!
We are definitely ready to get home and see everyone,especially John who we miss greatly. Good-bye beautiful Scottish Highland until the next time, we will be back! xxxXXX
