A walk on the Caithness moors in winter

Recommended Posts

A walk on the moors of central Caithness produced these images. Enjoy!

Looking over the moors. Note the deer track on the right. It goes to the river and then stops. Presumably, it is wher the herd drink.

Can only see the last picture, all the others  have grey 'no entry' icons - is it just me?

Same here, Brew.  But I've just seen them all on Compo's Facebook page, so it's obviously working OK on there!   Great photos, Compo - especially the 'pancake ice' on the river...

Would love to see those pics compo but can only see the last one. Try not to use FB

If Compo agrees I could share them on FB with Mrs PP.

Don't know what's wrong Margie. Perhaps an admin can sort it out? I know Waddo has managed to view them.
