Easter Monday - sunny & bright, we took off to enjoy it, visited Attadale Gardens, drove over the bridge to Skye, chippy tea at Broadford & took the scenic way home to check out Duncraig garden centre (on the road to Plokton) to be visited at a later date.
Didn't expect to see a llama around these parts so had to get out to see what was catching his interest.
Down below us was the sound of calling peacocks, which seemed to be the reason for his attention. What a handsome beast - love the dreadlocks. He has a fine view over Upper Loch torridon too.
Meconopsis, flowering early. These are a feature at our local Inverewe Gardens too.
The DIY tearoom. What a lovely coffee stop, make your own & chuck the money in an honesty box!
Same goes for paying your entry fee (£4-50), just hand it to one of the gardeners on your way round. Highly recommended by ourselves, a beautiful situation, lots of different styles of garden, sculptures, water features & no-one's trying to sell you anything else, not too big either.
A beautiful location on the road to Skye, been meaning to visit for years but never got around to it until today. A sunny Easter Monday & both of us off work, had to do something different so off we went.
I'm a 10 yro collieXNewfoundland. My humans found me in a rescue kennels 9 yrs ago &a couple of years ago they moved up to Gairloch in Scotland. They love it here. I didn't like it at first, missed all my old pals & walking haunts. Now, I'm used to it, have new friends & the humans are always at home, so I get a great walk every day.
Sadly, our dear Jamilla went to the kennel in the sky back in September. Osteoporosis in her spine, which she'd coped remarkably well with, became too bad & she lost the use of her hind legs.
She will be a hard act to follow.
